Editorial Reviews

This is one of those movies series that when I think about they remind me of all the saturdays in middle school where I would stay up till 4am watching all the old movies my parents and much-older siblings had laying around in our movie collection.\r\n\r\n'Revenge of the Nerds' is the perfect middle-school/high-school movie in every since of the phrase. It is cheap/slackstick/sexual humor, but unlike a lot of newer movies along the same lines ('American Pie,' 'Eurotrip,' 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin') it never feel gratuitous, eventhough the language is much more questionable. The plot itself follows two best-friend nerds durring their fall semester of their freshman year. When they are kicked out of the dorms, they along with fellow 'outcasts' band together and start their own fraturnity and cause problems for their fellow Fraturnity full of Jocks.\r\n\r\nThe Second movies features almost all of the entire original cast (Anthony Edwards only appears in the first 3-minutes of the film), as they take a trip down the Miami for a natual 'Fraturnity Leadership Meeting' and of course chaos insues.\r\n\r\nThe third film takes place a good 10/15 years after the events of the second movie, and thus has a completly different tone than the previous two. This movie was original made-for-TV so already from the beginning the humor is more slapstick (and much less sexual), and its dare-I-say almost 'family freiendly'. In the movie Louis' nephue moves off to college to find the college overrun with Nerds, but the Dean trying to get rid of them all.\r\n\r\nThe Fourth (and final film) I have only viewed once, but it is another 'made-for-tv' movie that follows the surviving nerds (now in their late 30s/early 40s) getting married and starting their families.

Format: DVD
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.

A pair of films that made being a nerd cool. When two young braniacs get treated harshly by every house on campus, they ban together with the other nerds and form their own fraternity. But a snobbish frat boy/quarterback and a bully/football coach have it in for them, and they have to prove their worth to the school by beating the jocks at their own game. The first film got a lot of attention for its stars, like Robert Carradine, Anthony Edwards, Curtis Armstrong and more. In the second film, the nerds head for Miami beach for spring break, but are again the target for attacks from their rivals, who try to set them up to get their house disbanded. But they've got more tricks up their sleeves. The sequel was entertaining, but gets cheesy. The first is a comedy classic.

Revenge of the Nerds is still as funny as I remembered it to be. Good for laughs, and also a reminder to people to not judge others, and walk in their shoes for a change. Robert Carradine is perfect as Lewis Skolnik!
