While the first of the Revenge of the Nerds films helped to breathe new life in the struggling teen film market and moved the genre back to college all the while helping to create a newer "hipper" version of the "nerd" character in teen cinema - the same cannot be said for its sequel. Still, it's refreshing to see Jeff Kanew's first successful feature film, as long as it doesn't make you wonder how a director with a gift for great comedic direction managed to lose his way with such dismissable tripe as 1989's Troop Beverly Hills and the flabby Kathleen Turner pic V.I. Warshawski. Nevertheless, Revenge of the Nerds still works as a triumph in teen cinema with a talented cast (led by Robert Carradine, Anthony Edwards, and a delightfully evil Ted McGinley - before Happy Days, The Love Boat, and Married With Children turned him into a one-dimensional acting joke). Even the normally noxious Timothy Busfield has fun with his role as the violin playing Poindexter. With a story that celebrates (however problematically) diversity in class, race, and sexuality - the film succeeds on a level beyond merely making the audience laugh. Add to this a touchingly heartfelt final speech by Anthony Edwards, and there is only one way that the sequel could have gone - down.
Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise has neither the sensitivity nor the humor of the first film. Directed with heavy handed excess by Hollywood uber producer Joe Roth (you have probably stumbled into a few of his sequels - most notably Young Guns II and The Exorcist III - not to mention his directing work which includes 1990's passable Coupe DeVille and last years America's Sweethearts), Roth manages to strip mine the first film of its humor and originality and replaces its gentle approach to T&A with a hamfisted collection of fart jokes.

80s sex comedies are some of the most enjoyable guilty pleasures ever made. I grew up with HBO, so I got to see many of them time and time again. My parents had designated the television as my babysitter, so I was able to watch all of these raunchy movies undetected. Porky's is probably the king of this genre, but my personal favorite without a doubt is Revenge Of The Nerds. You watch this film and think, "How in the hell could a person not like this movie?" It's funny, sexy, pointless, and it gives the underdog the opportunity to sleep with the cheerleader. Who can forget Booger at the belching contest, the panty raid on the sorority, Ogre, the Liquid Heat in the jocks, Poindexter smoking a joint or the catchy rap tune that wins them the talent contest? If you grew up in the 80s these are classic moments you'll never forget. Plot? Well, Nerds Vs. Jocks on a college campus, that's about all. Who needs plot in these kinds of films? Highly, highly, highly recommended. Part 2? Well, one trend I remember in the 80s was PG-13 sequels to successful R-rated films. If the sequel is PG-13, it's just common knowledge it isn't gonna be as good coz rather than living up to the first film or trying to go beyond, it's automatically watered down due to the rating. The police acedemy movies suffered the same fate, yet they did have their moments. Porky's always remained true though. Nerds 2 isn't a terrible movie, and it sure has it's share of laughs, but it was a doomed project from the getgo. Besides, it's a nice little bonus considering you're probably buying this dvd for the first film anyway. Buy it, Relive it, Enjoy it!

Nerd fans should rejoice at the recent CBS FOX DVD release of the first two films for the price of one. Widescreen and the prints are sharp. In the original film, it's brain vs. brawn at Adams College, and our heroes (especially Carradine and Edwards) are genuinely likable. Their attractive but unlikable antagonists repeatedly goad the nerds into retaliation, with hilarious results. One highlight is the party the nerds throw to try to get into a fraternity. Genuine friendship is abound between hi jinks and peeking at girls. Nerds II is a decent companion piece which sends the nerds to Fort Lauderdale for a fraternity conference. The alpha betas are just as sadistic, and our heroes come out fighting. Anthony Edwards only appears in a few scenes. They have a lot of new misadventures instead of just repeating the first film. Watch for their "No on 15" party. Good fun for fans of the genre.

Revenge of the Nerds and Revenge of the Nerds II reminds me of when teen comedy was funny, and not the tired routine that it has come to encompass in today's Hollywood machine. The jokes were funny, the characters were light-hearted, and your friends would always crack references from the script for the next week at school. Although they were filmed 3 years apart, they take place chronologically only 1 year apart. One can't help but to notice the big difference not only in clothing style but also in music. From Nerd-Punk (read: pseudo-Devo) to Nerd-Rap (read: pseudo-Beastie Boys), the difference is like night and day. But they can cook! I still catch myself singing phrases from the songs while at work or driving in my car.
Of all the different characters, Ogre and Booger are my favorites. The Nerd David versus a football playing Goliath. The crass humor these two contribute to the plot is just priceless! Conversely speaking, the "Snotty" character, Booger's Sensei from Part 2, was poorly executed and felt it wasn't used to the fullest. I would've enjoyed more scenes with Booger and Snotty.
All in all, I believe they're both solid films, despite the many parallels Part 2 runs to the original. I would give it a "5" rating if the DVD Bonus section had deleted scenes, bloopers, and a "making of" included. For those of us who grew up "Nerd", it's a priceless collection to add to your DVD library.
