Product Description

In this hilarious satire on college life, a group of misfits led by Robert Carradine and Anthony Edwards decides to start their own fraternity after being rejected by every house on campus. Chaos results, with a brains vs. brawn battle, as the football t

Additional Features

The deluxe edition of the 1984 college comedy Revenge of the Nerds comes equipped with a variety of special features that the film's cult fans will find essential. First, a running audio commentary by director Jeff Kanew and actors Robert Carradine, Timothy Busfield and Curtis Armstrong proves a delight: warm and silly memories by some very likeable, middle-age guys about working, scene-by-scene, on a goofy, Animal House-like movie in their younger years. The same four individuals, and others from the cast such as Ted McGinley (who played the villainous hunk Stan Gable), Julia Montgomery (Stan’s girlfriend, Betty Childs), and Andrew Cassese (Wormser), reminisce in the featurette documentary "I’m a Nerd and I’m Pretty Proud of It" about how they landed their respective jobs on the film (seems like everyone read for Carradine’s part) and how wild and crazy the actual shoot was in Tucson. What strikes one is how positive all those memories are. Even though some careers haven’t exactly skyrocketed in the years since Revenge took off, the experience seems to have been very good for everyone at the time. Also included in the special features section is the original, Orson Welles-narrated theatrical trailer; a trailer for Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds In Paradise; and such deleted scenes as a romantic interlude between Gilbert (Anthony Edwards) and girlfriend Judy (Michelle Meyrink), and another starring Michael Lerner as Gilbert’s racist uncle. A real rarity: the pilot for a truly forgettable television version of Revenge of the Nerds. --Tom Keogh

'Revenge of the Nerds' was a mainstay video rental back in the day for myself and my friends. Between this film and 'Bachelor Party' we must have played those tired old VHS tapes a good 20 times or more during the 80's. I was hopeful and just a bit excited over finally getting to see this movie in 1080p and presented in it's original widescreen aspect ratio. Arguably an 80's classic and a fond favorite of mine!

With that said, this review will focus on the video and audio quality, rather than the film itself. We have all waited many long years for this Blu Ray release and I for one had high hopes. So how does it look in High Definition?

In a word............. G R E A T ! Folks, this was a fairly low budget feature but for the most part things were done correctly during production and it shows in this well above average AVC encoded transfer.

The two best things about this transfer are the color and the REAL sharpness of the image , which is achieved not be overuse of edge enhancement, but because the negative scanned looks REALLY good to begin with.

The original color timing appears to have been left as is and that is a very good thing. Colors pop all over the place. Yes there are a few drab shots here and there, but overall 'Nerds' is vibrant looking and at times pops right off the screen. GREAT job! Add to that the fact that no untoward usage of DNR or Edge Enhancement rears it's ugly head and you have a winner here. ( i watched this upconverted to 4K on an LG LA9700 display and there were no obvious flaws revealed)

Basically, the only time the image looks even remotely poor is during some of the darker scenes, where a bit of noisy looking grain occasionally rears it's ugly head.

24 of 26 people found the following review helpful By Lonnie E. Holder HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 27, 2004
Format: VHS Tape
Regardless of how many times I have seen this movie, I always look forward to certain parts, and I am unable to resist seeing it just one more time. I could never categorize this movie as great, or even a classic; it is just an enjoyable comedy.

As the title suggests, this movie is about a group of hyper-stereotypical nerds. Leading the pack are Robert Carradine and Anthony Edwards. In addition are a number of other strong supporting characters, including an alternative lifestyle African-American, an Asian, a pint-sized genius, a classic coke-bottle-glasses geek, and a character aptly named "Booger." Each character is a caricature, and yet they have their basis in reality as I can attest.

This movie focuses on a band of college students frustrated with their inability to be recognized in a school where the football team seems to always have the best of everything. In the real world, Nerds are rarely members of cliques or jocks. You may almost guarantee that they do not hang out with the cool people. The end result is that Nerds almost always make sacrifices. However, the group of Nerds in this movie refuses to be continually kicked around.

After suffering multiple insults, the Tri-Lam's (Lambda-Lambda-Lambda) and the Omega-Mu's combine forces to attempt to take over the presidency of the Greek Council. The contest between the Tri-Lam's and Omega-Mu's against the jock/cheerleader team of the Alpha-Beta's and Pi-Delta-Pi's yields multiple funny moments, and a surprise or two meant for the over-18 crowd. One high point of this movie is the musical number by the Tri-Lam's and Omega-Mu's and another is the end of the movie when the Nerds finally make their point.

"Revenge of the Nerds" is a quintessential 80s movie. This film has it all--partying, pranks and one more "p" not suitable for this review. Betty Childs (Julie Montgomery) will blow you away. She's a classic 80s blonde in the sorority (Pi)that fraternizes w/ the jocks' frat (Alpha Beta).
Best friends from high school, Louis (Robert Carradine) and Gilbert (Anthony Edwards) go away to Adams College together. Upon arrival they and their nerd friends are picked on by the super-cool football playing Alpha Betas.
The nerds refuse to let their nerdiness sentence them to second-class citizenship. They take matters into their own hands when the "cool" kids keep messing w/ them. Some slyly placed video cameras and some smart usage of "liquid heat" provide some pretty darn funny moments. Their general nerdiness will keep you laughing, too.
In the end, the film's moral is that nerds are people just like everyone else. As Gilbert (Anthony Edwards) says, "No one will really be free until nerd persecution ends."
We're all nerdy in our own way... that's what this film taught me.

John Goodman is king. This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Dirty, raunchy, and completely unsuitable for teenage viewing, this movie makes it fun to remember what it was like when comedies actually contained full frontal female nudity! The locker room speech by John Goodman is one of the funniest things I have ever heard. BUY THIS MOVIE NOW! P.S. "What is hairpie?" or "Step Aside Mama, I Wanna See Some of That Muff".
