I have mixed feelings about the announcement that the same person who wrote the 21 Jump Street movie is now writing a remake of Weird Science
. Remaking a John Hughes movie? From that time period? You want to remake Curly Sue go right ahead, but Weird Science? I have very warm spot in my heart from any movie in that time period. Sure, Weird Science is a little strange, but it has everyone in it (Robert Downey Jr., Bill Paxton, and Michael Berryman) and a great performance by Anthony Michael Hall with some help from Kelly LeBrock. This is a woman who voluntarily married Steven Seagal. I know, I know. Hughes' version was PG-13. The remake would be R, but part of the fun of the PG-13 version is that it felt like an R without having to go that far.
