Probably a 1980s movie.

It is the story of a teenager who encounters a man (possibly his dad) and ends up getting into a nuclear factory or a thing like that. and he messes something up.

Possibly The Manhattan Project, but my memory is not good enough to identify any of the images

My strongest memory was to be super bored.

That definitely sounds like The Manhattan Project - teen uses mom's boyfriend's credentials to break into a nuclear lab, steals materials, builds a bomb, gets chased by the feds. I watched that one many many times growing up.

The entire movie is on YouTube in a distorted form:

Ought to be enough there for you to see if that is the movie you're trying to recall.
