    I've just watched the new Weird Science dvd and if I'm not mistaken there seems to be some dialogue missing in the scene where gary and wyatt are creating lisa on the computer.When the wireframe version of the body appears on the screen you can see gary mouth the words "VERY NICE" but you don't hear anything.If I remember correctly he actually says "BIGGER TITS".The subtitles say " VERY NICE" and also the subtitles say "HOLD IT WYATT.I KNOW FEMALE STATS.ANYTHING MORE THAN A HANDFUL AND YOU'RE RISKING A SPRAINED TONGUE" but you only hear him saying the part about the sprained tongue.What's going on here?

    Are you watching this on a mono TV? The dialogue may be on the other channel. That happened to me with Beauty and the Beast. Some of the song's lyrics were missing because they were coming out of the other wire that wasn't plugged into my TV.

    I don't think that line of dialogue ever existed. Saw this film several times when it was first released in 1985 and don't remember ever hearing it. Just checked a vhs copy I have from when Showtime first aired the movie in 1986 (with the original music intact) and it just isn't there. To quote Elvis Costello, "Imagination is a powerful deceiver."

    I seem to remember those lines of dialogue, although a friend of mine just confirmed with me:

    No, the line about "anymore than a handful..." has definitely been in the movie before. I've seen it several times on cable in the 80s with that line, because I always thought that was funny.

    I think the "Bigger Tits" line comes later in the movie when Gary and Wyatt are trying to make another girl for Robert Downey Jr. and his friend. Downey and/or friend say the line I believe. To the best of my recollection. Haven't got my copy yet. Will check when I get it. Love this movie.

    Just had a look at the Image disc and gary says "very nice" then, "if there's one thing i know it's female stats,anything more than a handful...".The new disc definitely only has the line "anything more than a handful..."

    Well, I checked my older DVD of this and the VHS copy of the movie and I can confirm that it isn't in either of those versions. The line is said later in the film where Gary replys "give em the knee shooters I don't care"

    Be careful when compareing different DVDs. It just so happens that Image made two versions of this movie on those early DVDs. On the back of the case, one version says HOME VIDEO VERSION, the other says THEATRICAL VERSION. It just so happens I'm a big WEIRD SCIENCE fan, and I have been into DVD for about 5 years, so I have some cool old copies.
