Where I Found It:
Computer (Personal 80’s Collection)

Summary:
Two unpopular teenagers, Gary and Wyatt, fail at all attempts to be accepted by their peers. Their desperation to be liked leads them to “create” a woman via their computer. Their living and breathing creation is a gorgeous woman, Lisa, whose purpose is to boost their confidence level by putting them into situations which require Gary and Wyatt to act like men. On their road to becoming accepted, they encounter many hilarious obstacles, which gives the movie an overall sense of silliness.

Favorite Quote:
“Headquarters, we are still in pursuit of the black  Lamborghini. Car 42, you’ve been in pursuit for two hours. Another five minutes and you’ll be in Arizona. Yeah, and we’re going to stay in pursuit until we catch them. It didn’t take us THAT long to catch Dillinger.”
