Podcast: WEIRD SCIENCE delivers a “Respect Women” message in the most disrespectful way.
Weird Science (1985) marks the halfway point in John Hughes’ domination of the teen film in the ’80s. The film seems to be trying to put a stop to films where women were only seen as sex objects, but he misses the mark. In this teen sex comedy, two horny high schoolers Frankenbuild the “perfect woman”… to have sex with. In this episode of ’80s Movies: A Guide to What’s Wrong with Your Parents podcast, movie authorities Tara McNamara, Gen X, and Riley Roberts, Gen Z, look at what the comedy classic tries to achieve in versus the actual takeaway.
