If you were a teen in the 80s, then you'll be familiar with Kelly LeBrock and her role as Lisa in John Hughes' gonzo sci-fi comedy "Weird Science." The former fashion model was a natural for the role of a fantasy-filled girl.
Her breakout performance in the film made her a full-blown '80s sex symbol and a fan favorite. In this quotable film, her character is a Frankenstein-styled dream woman designed on a computer and brought to life by a freak electrical accident.
What makes "Weird Science" so much fun is that writer-director John Hughes threw all movie logic out the window to make his film as ridiculous and off-the-wall as possible. As a result, he and LeBrock were able to make some of the most memorable scenes in their era.
In the film, two nerdy friends Gary (Anthony Michael Hall) and Wyatt (Ilan Mitchell-Smith) decide to design their perfect girl on a computer and then, by accident, her comes to life through a freak electrical accident. This turns her into a full-blown, bikini-bottomed sex goddess who takes them on a weekend of wild fun, dressing them up, getting them drunk and even sexing them up with a Porsche.
Despite its age, Weird Science is still a fun movie to watch for anyone who remembers it from the 80s. It's one of Hughes' most quotable movies, and it's definitely a throwback to a fun era in cinema. It's also a great look back at the technology of its day.
