Editorial Reviews

The iconic Julie Newmar stars as a toy company CEO determined to lure a nerdy genius toy designer (Wally Cox) to her failing company. When a string of luscious prostitutes fail to get the job done, she realizes that the nerd wants HER, because she reminds him of his mother! Film score by the legendary QUINCY JONES!

3.0 out of 5 stars Over the Top July 28, 2008
Verified Purchase
Sometimes camp is a little too aware of being camp, and this might be the case with this odd 1972 film. Wally Cox is way over the top as a little man who likes to follow pretty girls around the streets and who really just wants a mother figure to push him around. Victor Buono steals the show as the slobbering fool who is trying to lure Cox into working for his boss, a radiant and all-too-sexy Julie Newmar. This is great camp fun and Newmar is in her prime. I would have liked it a little more if it had been slightly less aware of its own oddness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strange and fun February 7, 2014
Verified Purchase
This movie was a strange movie. It had good music by Quincy Jones. One of the main reasons I got this film is I am a long time fan of Julie Newmar best known for playing Catwoman on the 60s tv show. She's still a raving beauty at 80. Victor Buono is in this and he also is known best for being King Tut on the 60s Batman show. Buono was a great actor and criminally underrated. He left his mark in the great iconic movie Whatever Happened To Baby Jane earning a Best Supporting Oscar Nomination. Finally the lead actor is Wally Cox. Newmar plays the owner of a toy company who wants to recruit a toy maker in Cox to join her company. Cox is a strange fellow he likes to follow pretty women all day long and when he sees Newmar she instantly reminds him of his mother. Cox has a mother complex or some problem there. He doesn't want to work for Newmar and Buono who works for Newmar is sent to recruit him by any means necessary including providing him with female company. It's a real bizarre movie and in the end you make ask yourself how it got made. I found it entertaining and it's not the best movie but it's fun. Nice for Julie Newmar fans too. So I would say give it a shot you may just like it! Cheers!

4.0 out of 5 stars Catwoman And King Tut Meet Underdog! June 19, 2014
Verified Purchase
Take the Monkees' movie "Head" (1968), "The Love God?" (1969) with Don Knotts, and Russ Meyer's "Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls" (1970), and put them in a blender. The resulting concoction would resemble "The Seduction Of A Nerd." Wally Cox stars as Clyde King, a toy designer who lives in a house filled with toys. He also likes to follow beautiful women as they're walking down the street. Mother (Julie Newmar) desperately wants him to work for her toy company. Her morbidly obese son Lyle "Skippy" Ferns (Victor Buono) gets the brilliant idea of having beautiful women seduce Clyde, which would persuade him to go to work for the Mother Knows Best Toy Company. Because Clyde has a Mother fixation, he can't bring himself to work for her company, no matter how beautiful the women tempting him are, including Angelique Pettyjohn. The groovy music for this movie was supplied by the legendary Quincy Jones. Wally Cox's dancing scene at a nightclub was hilarious. The scenes in which Wally was singing were painful to listen to. Victor Buono's scene where he attempts to get into a small compact car was painfully unfunny. Victor's scene where he dressed up in drag as a hooker was strangely reminiscent of Divine in "Pink Flamingos" (1972), and was one of the highlights of this film. Julie Newmar, who didn't appear in the movie nearly enough to satisfy me, was stunningly beautiful. In one of the bonus features, Julie is interviewed, around 35 years after the movie was made. She has high praise for the film and her fellow actors. Not surprisingly, she still looks beautiful!

1.0 out of 5 stars Seduction of a Nerd Review September 15, 2009
By Litany
There are actually worse films on the market than this, but not by much. However, the fact that I can't say it's the bottom of the heap says something. Years ago a review for "Beach Party" stated: "You have to have the intelligence of a moron to sit through it." I'd put The Seduction of a Nerd a notch above "Beach Party" and the Beach Party sequels, but just a notch, primarily because I think it shows at least some originality. The sexual emphasis is all in good humor, not too heavy, and that places the movie in a more average category. But all in all, I'd rather watch films like The Postman, Dragonfly, and Eight Below than waste my time on this kind of shallow silliness.
