Weird Science

Synopsis: Two unpopular teenagers, Gary Wallace and Wyatt Donnelly, fail at all attempts to be accepted by their peers. Their desperation to be liked leads them to "create" a woman via their computer. Their living and breathing creation is a gorgeous woman, Lisa, whose purpose is to boost their confidence level by putting them into situations which require Gary and Wyatt to act like men. On their road to becoming accepted, they encounter many hilarious obstacles, which gives the movie an overall sense of silliness.

This is so beautiful.

You know it, Gary.

Look at her.

Do you know

what I'd like to do?

Shower with them.

Then we hit

the city, baby,

dead on,

for a little drinks,

a little nightlife,



We throw a huge party,

I mean huge party...

Everybody's invited,

women everywhere.

All these girls,

they're all there.

Naked bodies everywhere.


They'll know my name.


Nobody likes us.


Why are you messing

with the fantasy?

We know about

the reality.

Don't ruin

the fantasy, okay?

And then,

we're a hit, man.

We're popular.

We're revered.

Man, we're studs.

When the smoke clears,


those two dames

fall amazingly,


and totally in love

with us, Wyatt.

Check it out.


Check us out!

Look, we're

sorry about...

She's alive

She's alive

Weird science



Weird science

Plastic tubes

and pots and pans

Bits and pieces

And magic from our hands

We're makin'

weird science

Ooh, things

I've never seen before

Behind bolted doors

And imagine,

it's my creation

Is it real?

It's my creation

I do not know

No hesitations

Your heart of gold

Is flesh and blood

I do not know

Why do I know?

From my heart

and from my hand

Why don't people


My intentions

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

weird science


Ooh, ooh

Weird science

Things I've never

seen before

Behind bolted doors

Weird science

Bits and pieces

and bits and pieces

And bits and pieces



Where did your

parents go, anyway?


They're meeting the guy

my sister wants to marry.

Chloe? Who the hell

would marry Chloe?

He's studying

to be a vet.

Don't make a mess.

The maid doesn't come

till Monday.

How come your parents

suddenly trust you?

Chet's coming home from

college for the weekend.

He's in charge.

Chet? Sh*t!

You should have

told me this

before I agreed

to sleep over.

How do you

put up with him?

If I don't, he beats the sh*t out of me.

It's a habit he picked

up in military school.

He's very

protective of me.

Nice relationship.


There's nothing

to fear.


No blood, no decay.

Go on.

Fix the electrodes.

You'll have plenty

to be afraid of


the night's over.

The storm

will be magnificent...

All the electrical

secrets of heaven.

This time we're ready,


Let's have

one final test.

Throw the switches.

Here in this machine,

I have discovered

the great ray

that first brought life

into the world.


the final touch...

the brain

you stole, Fritz...

The brain of a dead man

waiting to live again

in a body I made.

It's not a bad idea.


In 15 minutes,

the storm...

Making a girl.

Actually making a girl...

just like Frankenstein,

except cuter.

Nobody must come here.!

Don't touch it.!

Sorry, Doctor.

You're serious.


Look me in the eyes.

Do I look serious?

You're crazy.!

Crazy am I?

We'll see

whether I'm crazy or not.

Gary Wallace,

that's absolutely gross.

I'm not digging up

dead girls.

I'm not talking about

digging up a dead girl.

I'm talking about

your computer, idiot.

You can simulate stuff

on your computer.

Why can't we

simulate a girl?

I guess I could,

but why?

It's two-dimensional

on the screen.

It's not

flesh and blood.

But we can

ask it questions.

We'll put it in

real-life sexual situations

and see how it reacts.

Well, what about

your girl in Canada?

She lives in Canada.

She has no morals.

I don't like that

in a girl.

Anyway, get to work.

Very nice.

Hold it, Wyatt.

I know female stats.

Anything bigger

than a handful,
