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.Written by

There are 5 actors named in the credits as The Weenies. Wallace Langham (Art) was also a Weenie. There were multiple scenes shot with these characters, who were buds of Gary and Wyatt. John Hughes did not have final cut of the film and so almost all of The Weenie scenes were cut. They can be seen in a mall scene when Ian and Max chase after Lisa. Lisa passes by The Weenies and Max and Ian slap them. They can also be seen sitting on a couch with Lisa when the house is going berserk during the party scene. The edited TV version of the film includes a scene when The Weenies arrive at the party on mopeds, wearing Devo helmets. Lisa opens the door and allows them into the party. See more »

It's a joke, Chet!
That's not a joke, that's a severe behavioral disorder. I mean, the next thing you know, you'll be wearing a bra on your head!

Comedy Central version changes some of the music in some scenes and adds the scene where Gary and Wyatt are cooking in the beginning. See more »
God bless the 80's, and may they live on way after their time! This film captures the 80's geeks, preps, and class rivalry. It was a hard time to fit in, but a fun time, like most teenagers, I had these fantasies that this movie reflects on. I can not believe they got Wes from the Road Warrior to do a part. The scene where the computer animated women talks to Michael Halls parent is hilarious, but sick. The stuff going out of the chimney, the MX missile, and the kitchen turning blue is funny. Bill Paxion or chet is a classic wait and see what happens to him. Anyways rent it live it and be it! 8/10
