Editorial Reviews

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny 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.

There's just something about these comedies from the 80's that will always put a smile on the face of those of us who remember watching them for the first time back then, and hopefully, will also put a smile on the face of those of the younger generation who are discovering them now. "Revenge of the Nerds" is by far way up there among the better comedies from that decade. Sure, there's vulgarity here and there, but that doesn't take away from the humor and overall enjoyment. And one has to remember that the often un-politically correct aspect of many characters was common in the 80's.

And now this great film has finally gotten a DVD release that does it justice. The audio commentary by Jeff Kanew, Robert Carradine, Timothy Busfield and Curtis Armstrong is quite insightful and of course humorous, basically what one would expect. The "I'm a nerd, and I'm pretty proud of it" featurette has several of the actors talk about their experiences playing their roles. Nothing too spectacular, but definitely worth a look. The "Revenge of the Nerds" television pilot is certainly a nice feature, although mainly for novelty's sake. The 6 deleted scenes are "Stan Owes Nerd Money," "Gilbert Tells Judy How He Feels," "Tri-Lamb Vegas Convention," "Meet Uncle Meyer," "Chariot Race" and "Nerds Catch Jocks Destroying Their House." And finally, there is the trailer and a sneek peak of "Revenge of the Nerds 2: Nerds in Paradise." The DVD presentation offers a fairly nice transfer (a little grainy in some parts, which I suppose we can live with) and good sound quality-make sure to turn the volume way up for the Talent Show scene.

What else is there to say? If you're a fan, go out NOW and get this. Long live the Nerds!

And as a side note, the DVD insert has an advertisement for the "One Size Fits All" special edition of "Porky's," soon to be released. Be on the lookout for that too.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Nerds" a quintessential 80s movie December 2, 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
"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".
