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.Read more ›
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.
