Bizarre take on sci fi/fantasy mixed up in 80's era teen movie. Two friends accidentally discover that their computer can make... anything. So of course the first thing they do is create a supercharged woman (Le Brock) with magical electrical powers who turns everyone's life upside down. She teaches the boys their own worth so they don't have to create fantasy women (there's something in it that would have been completely missed by the cinema's full of 14 years old boys ogling Le Brock), but that relatively simple premise is drawn out to full length with plenty of teenage comedy. One of Paxton's earliest roles as obnoxious brother Chad.
