While I still have a strange, unwanted taste in my mouth from hearing about the propose remake of John Hughes’ Weird Science, thanks to the above parody video from Funny or Die I can temporarily forget about it. This video brings to life any conversation that any film fan has had about Weird Science that lasts longer than three minutes.
Even John Hughes films aren't immune to the remake treatment, it seems. As geekdom is practically revered in today's pop culture, it's really a wonder that Hughes' 1985 comedy Weird Science hasn't already been mined for a remake. Better late than never? Some would surely argue that point. "Leave it alone," thirty and forty-somethings will cry. But they may not be heard over the sound of the thudding hearts of those of us anxiously and optimistically hoping that maybe - just maybe - the remake all be good. Because maybe it will.
