Reviews
Mine: Nothing much. A couple of good moments, but the leads are week. The TV show based on this was better. Robert Downey Jr. is good as the bad guy.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Two nerdy teens use computer to conjure up woman of their dreams (sexy LeBrock), but writer-director Hughes doesn't follow through on his own premise! Appalling excuse for comedy; tasteless and endless, unredeemed by Hughes's sharp teenage dialogue and Hall's engaging performance. Later a cable TV series.

Seminal film, as youth defining as ferris bueller, and of course, a tacky, tasteless piece of shit, but i and every one else in my generation loves it. Responsible for many many one liner rip offs i still use today. But don't tell anyone that. The character of Chet is a work of genius. Cool as f***
