Weird Science is a 1985 American teen comedy film written and directed by John Hughes and starring Anthony Michael Hall, Kelly LeBrock, and Ilan Mitchell-Smith. The film's producer Joel Silver acquired film rights to the pre-Comics Code Authority 1950s EC Comics magazine of the same name, from which the plot is developed as an expansion and modernization of the basic premise in Al Feldstein's story "Made of the Future" in the fifth issue. The title song was written and performed by American New Wave band Oingo Boingo.

Gary Wallace (Anthony Michael Hall) and his best friend, Wyatt Donnelly (Ilan Mitchell-Smith), are 15-year-old nerds with low social standing at their Shermer, Illinois high school, who, in the opening scene, are pantsed by two bullies, Ian (Robert Downey, Jr.) and Max (Robert Rusler) in front of a gymnasium full of beautiful girls.

During a weekend at Wyatt's house in which his parents are out of town, the boys are inspired, by the film Frankenstein, to create a woman by feeding their desired statistics of beauty and great intelligence into Wyatt's computer and hacking into a government computer for more power, while connecting Wyatt's computer to a Barbie doll. After a lightning bolt during their experiment creates a violent explosion, a beautiful woman (Kelly LeBrock) appears before them who, in addition to being totally devoted to them, has a number of superhuman abilities, such as memory manipulation, molecular manipulation, and reality warping.

Despite her willingness to be everything Wyatt and Gary wanted, the boys are too intimidated to take advantage of the opportunities presented by her appearance, as when they keep their underwear on while showering with her. Realizing that the boys need to lower some of their inhibitions, she transmogrifies their poorly-styled outfits into more flattering clothes before taking them out for a night on the town in a sports car that she conjures out of thin air. After the boys name her Lisa, she conjures fake identification for the boys, and takes them to a blues club. Although initially uncomfortable in these new surroundings, the trio eventually end up ingratiating themselves to the staff and some regulars, in part with the help of alcohol, staying until late at night.
