Hughes of the Force
Welcome to a cross between a John Hughes movie and Star Wars. Which John Hughes movie? Weird science. Our story starts off with our heroes, make that nerds, at the convince store checking out a hot girl while her boyfriend defends her honor by making fools of them both. He is after all a jock.
She invites them to the party but her boyfriend quickly adds that they need a hot chick in order to get in. Their room is full of the coolest star wars toys ever! One of the nerds is falling in love with the writings of fan fiction. He longs to meet the writer, while his friend is trying to figure out how to get into the party. He wants the girl from store.
The friend who likes the mystery writer rips open a slave Leia toy. He has a crazy unrealistic idea. He is going to bring the toy alive and make a woman. The two friends get to work putting together the machine that will change their lives forever. A wild storm erupts in the house before the hottest action figure ever walks out, or well she is a woman now, in a slave Leia outfit. What guy doesn't want that?!
Well no guy I know would then show her Star Wars. I mean they are great movies, the first 6 anyways, but that's not what you do with a sexy woman with magic powers. She turns them into Han and Luke and lets them fight it out for her honor. Now that is more nerdy. I'd be down for that fight. They even have the force! How cool would that be?
She takes the boys out to a local bar. It isn't their type of place, at least until she makes it a Star Wars bar. I've never been much for hitting up clubs or bars but I'd go to that one in a heart beat. These guys are so nerdy that even at a Star Wars bar they can't fit in or find anyone who likes them.
At least until they start cracking jokes and turns the crowd against Darth Vader. Causing a fight that they escape from almost as soon as they start it. Bleeding cowards. Kevin Smith shows up to give the boys advice! It's Kevin Smith!!!!! He turns into their Yoda more or less. Do or do not, there is no try!
The boys show up at the party. The guy who likes the mystery writer tries to win some points with Leia, I mean why not? If you ever watched the old Weird Science TV show I always wanted to date Lisa. Beautiful, funny and magic! What's not to love?
The door opens and Leia is pulled into the house, leaving the guys outside. The two friends decide that they have to break into the party and free her. They go dressed as the pizza guys. Luke, the guy who likes the girl from the store hides out in the bathroom as the store girl comes into the restroom with her friend. She talks about how she is going to break up with that asshole jock. She wants a nice funny guy. He has his in!
Meanwhile Han makes his way upstairs looking for Leia who is alone in the room with the asshole jock. Luke goes outside and starts showing off his force powers to the crowd outside. The store girl is impressed. The crowd turns against him when he messes with their beer. Han pulls a George McFly trying to save Leia, he is only saved by the jock going outside to fight Luke.
Han tells Leia how much he loves her but she lets him down softy. Luke keeps the jock at bay using the force. Leia tells Han that she has to go, she can't stay anymore. When she leaves the force stops working and the jock can finally get Luke, who is now back to just being a loser. Han, also back to being a loser sits outside alone and sad. He is reading aloud from the fan fiction he loves when a girl repeats the same line. It turns out that she is the one who writes the fan fiction. She talks him into helping his friend, but before he can get there the girl from the store shows up. He knocks her down and Han kicks the jock where no man wants to be kicked. Saving the day.
Luke helps the store girl up and it looks as if they are about to kiss but she walks up. He tries to help the jock up but he slaps his hand away and the store girl pours her drink in his hair before kissing the nerd. He got the girl! They go off to watch Star Wars, his friend brings the writer and it ends with a scene right out of the Breakfast Club.
This short film is amazing and made for fans of the 80's. You can't love the movies people my age grew up with and not love this film. It was made for us and should be talked about more!
