The Stars of "Weird Science" -- See What They Look Like 30 Years Later!

  • TooFab
The Stars of
30 years ago today, two geeks from Shermer, Illinois created Lisa, the perfect woman, with a little computer know-how. That's right, "Weird Science" came out exactly three decades ago and was the third film John Hughes stepped behind the camera for as director, following "The Breakfast Club" and "Sixteen Candles." The flick was also the fourth time Hughes had worked with star Anthony Michael Hall, who appeared in both of the aforementioned films, as well as the Hughes-penned "Vacation." Fun fact: Hall reportedly chose this flick over doing a "Vacation" sequel -- thus starting a franchise tradition of switching the actors playing the Griswold children each film. Joining Hall were Ilan Mitchell-Smith and Kelly LeBrock, a former model who turned her sights towards acting. "Weird Science" went on to become a cult classic and spawned a USA series of the same name, with Vanessa Angel taking over the role of Lisa.

The Premiere of "Dumb & Dumber To" Had the Most Throwback Guest List Ever

The first "Dumb and Dumber" came out way back in 1994, so it's no surprise last night's premiere for the sequel, "Dumb and Dumber To," was packed full of stars that made us feel a little nostalgic.Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels paid homage to their on-screen alter-egos by dressing in suits similar to the tuxedos they famously sported in the '90s flick. The two also showed up to the red carpet in one very familiar vehicle: The Mutt Cutts van!But the flashbacks didn't stop there. While original film star (and Carrey ex-wife) Lauren Holly was sadly Mia, another pair of '90s women caught our eyes.Vanessa Angel -- who starred in one of the Farrelly Brothers' other films, "Kingpin," as well as the TV version of "Weird Science" -- looked sexy as ever in black leather and lace.

Your 2013 Halloween Season TV Preview (abridged) with Schedules

Last year we ran a schedule of every TV/Cable network schedule we could find that could be construed as Horror or Halloween related for the month of October. Let’s just say it proved useful for our readers and even for our staff when they were looking to find something to watch, wanted to program their DVR’s or didn’t want to miss out on some great “live” Horror. Isn’t there something about having a movie fed to you on TV as opposed to watching it on Blu-ray or DVD or streaming? We may not like commercials, but the randomness that you can associate with a TV program itinerary is novel. It removes a little bit of control from the audience who is all to concerned with being in control these days (just look at the reasons behind publishing a piece like this).

So here’s the 2013 Halloween Seasonal TV Preview,

When twins Jonah and Ella (BooBoo and Fivel Stewart) are sent to an elite boarding school, their creepy headmaster (Roberts) seems to know more about the brother and sister than they do themselves. As they try to settle in to their new faculty; mysterious and eerie goings on escalate as their new classmates reveal that there are strange things afoot as the school and one of the school cliques maybe something more… a coven of demon-worshipping witches.

Gay Israelis vs. Unkosher Twin Witch-slayers


Eytan Fox's superb sequel to his award-winning love story, Yossi & Jagger (2002), has finally arrived. The original told of two Israeli soldiers situated on the Lebanese border, whose clandestine love affair was struggling to survive in a friendly yet homophobic atmosphere. Jagger, who was a little more out there, did his darnedest to loosen up Yossi (Ohad Knoller), begging him to quit the army and live with him in a more tolerant ambiance such as the one Tel Aviv could furnish. The rosy vision unsettled Yossi, but not for long. Jagger was killed in an ambush - - and buried as a brave heterosexual, at least in the eyes of his parents and his compatriots.

Now jump a decade ahead. Dr. Yossi Hoffman is a highly respected cardiologist, yet a lonely, slightly out-of-shape homosexual. A workaholic, he refuses to take vacations, and his free evenings are neatly eviscerated by TV shows with laugh tracks.

Hansel & Gretel Warriors of Witchcraft and Ghoul Bring the Youthful Horror to DVD this January

A ravenous ghoul terrorizes a cast member of “Modern Family”. A Twilight wolfman and his real-life sister go hunting for supernatural evil. Younger horror fans get to start the new year off with Ghoul and Hansel & Gretel: Warriors of Witchcraft on DVD.

Who would have ever thought Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters would inspire so many b-movie knock-offs? Sure, we’re only talking two, but that’s still two more than I would have expected.

While The Asylum’s Hansel & Gretel name-only mockbuster takes a more modern horror approach, Lionsgate has one that looks to be more of a tweener-friendly version of the R-rated big screen version. Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, allow me to introduce you to Hansel & Gretel: Warriors of Witchcraft.

Jonah And Ella Mazer (Hansel and Gretel) were happy, normal teenagers–sent to an elite boarding school. The Headmaster, Sebastian, seems to know more about the brother and sister than they know about themselves.

New Release: Cougar Hunting DVD

Cougar Hunting, yet another sexy comedy about a bunch of guys in their 20s and their adventures with women of an older but sexually provocative persuasion, is coming to DVD from Screen Media on Aug. 2 for a list price of $24.98.

The three young men—played by Matt Prokop, Jareb Dauplaise and Randy Wayne—head out to Aspen to jump on the cougar cruising train, encountering such lovely ladies who apparently fit the description as Vanessa Angel (Spies Like Us) and Lara Flynn Boyle (TV’s The Practice), as well as the notably younger Jillian Murray (Wild Things: Foursome).

When we reviewed the movie Cougars, Inc. last month, we opined that “Cougars” were fast becoming a stale topic, having been a hot subject for quickie comedies and DVD Premieres a couple of years back. (For examples, check out Cougar Club, Cougars 101 and Cougar School.) We were going to amend our theory

Kingpin Review: One More Time, Sweetness.

  • Pajiba
Peter and Bobby Farrelly's follow-up to the cult classic Dumb and Dumber (1994), Kingpin (1996), is my favorite of their filmography, which climaxed with There's Something About Mary (1998) before following a crash and burn trajectory. After being disappointed with Me, Myself, & Irene (2000) and only catching glimpses of Shallow Hal (2001), I signed off on the duo. Their first three films were able to balance a heartfelt approach to characterization while simultaneously using those very characters as cogs in a gross-out comedy machine. Jeff Daniels' Harry, Jim Carrey's Lloyd, and Ben Stiller's Ted are all loveable losers that evoke a larger spectrum of emotions from us precisely because they are unaware that they are loveable losers. As Roger Ebert describes Dr. Strangelove, "People trying to be funny are never as funny as people trying to be serious and failing. The laughs have to seem forced on unwilling characters by the logic of events.
