What if you could create the perfect woman just from the tap of a keyboard and a click of a mouse? That's the tantalising premise at the heart of John Hughes's delightfully dorky teen classic, which celebrates its 30th birthday today (August 2).
To mark this momentous day, we look back at the cast of the beloved '80s film to find out what they've done since. Whatever happened to that fella Robert Downey Jr...?
'80s sex symbol Kelly LeBrock hit big with her first two roles in Gene Wilder's The Woman in Red and Weird Science, but only appeared in a handful of films after - among them Betrayal of the Dove, Tracks of a Killer and Zerophilia.
She moved out to a farm in Santa Barbara where she looks after animals and sleeps under the stars with her horse, but she keeps cropping up »
Say what you like about Ashton Kutcher's Jobs movie, but it did hold one ace up its sleeve that the Danny Boyle-directed biopic doesn't - an actor who actually resembles the character they're playing.

National Geographic is bringing American inventors to the forefront in its new hourlong docu-drama “American Genius.” The eight-part series includes competing innovators such as “Tesla v. Edison,” “The Wright Brothers v. Curtiss” and “Hearst v. Pulitzer.”

During a conference call, the computer geek-turned-icon spoke with Variety and other outlets about his take on the upcoming “American Genius” showdown.
The idea of this show is Gates versus Jobs. How would you articulate, as you see it, the philosophical differences between the two — are they as different as we think they are even today?

30 years ago today, John Hughes's teen movie The Breakfast Club opened in the Us, and although it wasn't a runaway box office hit, in the years since it has rightly claimed a place as a screen classic.
Buoyed by brilliant performances, a sharp script and direction from Hughes and that Simple Minds track, this is a film we return to again and again. But what happened to its stars? We go then and now with the cast to find out what happened to the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess and the criminal.
