Like a computer-generated fairy godmother, the duo’s heavenly creation guides the pair through the pleasures and pitfalls of teenage life. From writer/director John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles), Weird Science: Flashback Edition is digitally remastered and includes all-new bonus features and is ready for re-discovery all over again!
From the manufacturer
Weird Science (Flashback Edition)
The Frankenstein legend takes an uproarious twist in this outrageous special effects-laden comedy from the writer-director of Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club. Critically acclaimed filmmaker John Hughes is at it again, giving nerdy computer whiz Ilan Mitchell-Smith and his best friend, Anthony Michael Hall, power to create the "perfect woman" (Kelly LeBrock). Like a computer-generated fairy godmother, the duo's out-of-this-world creation guides the pair through the pleasures and pitfalls of adolescence. With a rock beat supplied by many music superstars including Oingo Boingo, this far-out, sci-fi fable brings everyone's favorite teen fantasies to life through the miracle of Weird Science.

When I finally got my copy of the Arrow Video, release I was really taken back about how good the picture looked compared to previous releases.
You have the option of watching an extended cut with two additional scenes that were cut th the theatrical release. the scenes don't do much for the film but are interesting to view.
Also you get a theatrical cut with improved sound.
I won't list the extras see product statement.
Overall I would recommend this release as I feel this is the best release fans are going to get of 80s Nostalgia!
There is a Region A release from a couple years back which has extras, not sure if it was limited or not but that is probably the way to go but only if you want the extras like me.
If you just want the film then certainly buy this as like I say the HD upgrade is brilliant, just a shame they don't release it all over the world at the same time with the extras intact, surely a money maker. Imagine if they released a Weird Science film and TV series box set, now that is a first day buy.
2 boys accidentally create a woman. She gets them into trouble big time but she is getting them to be a better version of themselves. All gets worse with a party and the big brother's interference along with 'The Hills have Eyes' cast that crash the party.
Great fun but dated.
