TV & Film
It was only a matter of time before a John Hughes movie would come up. This time out, Justin and Lindsay discuss the ridiculous, fantastical world of Hughes’ 1985 classic, Weird Science. They hit on subjects like puberty, the role of Kelly LeBrock in the film, where this movie fits into Hughes’ career and a ton of reasons why Weird Science is an unforgettable watch.
