"How 'bout a nice, greasy pork sandwich served in a dirty ashtray?"
4 stars

Gotta love those 80's John Hughes sexcoms.

Gary and Wyatt (Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Michael-Smith) are two geeks. But they've got a computer, and in the mid-80's, that's all you really needed.

So they made a woman. A living, breathing, aerobicizing woman.

But she had these really weird powers, and she used them to help the guys become popular, which, in the end, they could've done all along.

They don't make movies like this anymore, which is too bad. It's a decent comedy with fantasy elements and the staple of 80's movies, teenage sex. Oh, and it's got Bill Paxton in his best film role ever.

Harmless and funny as hell.

Chips, dips, chains, whips, sex, drugs, rock and roll, candlewax on the nipples, witchcraft.
