College freshmen Skolnick and Gilbert form their own fraternity for computer-whiz misfits.
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 (Stans girlfriend, Betty Childs), and Andrew Cassese (Wormser), reminisce in the featurette documentary "Im a Nerd and Im Pretty Proud of It" about how they landed their respective jobs on the film (seems like everyone read for Carradines 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 havent 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 Gilberts racist uncle. A real rarity: the pilot for a truly forgettable television version of Revenge of the Nerds. --Tom Keogh

Something about the "Snobs vs Slobs" trope makes us helplessly root for the underdog every time, the caddies, the outcasts, the nerds. While this movie does spend a bit too much time at the end trying to preach, it delivers a hilariously good time with a perfectly dated 1980's setting and soundtrack, an early look at John Goodman and what ended up being Robert Carradine's most iconic role (he would go on to star in 3 less successful sequels).
Grab a couple buds, a couple brews and throw on Revenge of the Nerds for some old school 80's comedy fun.
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.
