REVENGE OF THE NERDS - 1984
Two lifelong friends (portrayed by Robert Carradine and Anthony Edwards) have finally gone off to college. Unfortunately, these guys are two of the biggest nerds on the face of the earth. Combine that with the fact that they are freshmen, and you've got trouble. They meet with immediate resentment, getting thrown out of their dorm and being forced to live in the gym! Among the tormentors is none other than Ted McGinley of Happy Days and Married With Childen fame. Fortunately, they aren't the only freshman class outcasts. Joining forces with a loser (Curtis Armstrong), a black homosexual (Larry B. Scott), a Japanese exchange student (Brian Tochi), a dork with a bad haircut and even worse eyesight (Timothy Busfield), and a pre-teen genius (Andrew Cassese), the nerds plot revenge against their tormentors.
REVENGE OF THE NERDS II - 1987
Some time has passed since the first film (probably one year.) And everyone's favorite gaggle of nerds is chosen to represent Adams College at a fraternity conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Unfortunately, the Alpha Beta fraternity (the guys that tormented them in the first film) also have representatives at the conference, so the geeks must once again find a way to stand their ground.
The first film is a comedy classic, no questions asked. Honestly, who WOULDN'T laugh at a fraternity full of nerds doing a panty raid on a sorority house?Read more ›
Of all the different characters, Ogre and Booger are my favorites. The Nerd David versus a football playing Goliath. The crass humor these two contribute to the plot is just priceless! Conversely speaking, the "Snotty" character, Booger's Sensei from Part 2, was poorly executed and felt it wasn't used to the fullest. I would've enjoyed more scenes with Booger and Snotty.
All in all, I believe they're both solid films, despite the many parallels Part 2 runs to the original. I would give it a "5" rating if the DVD Bonus section had deleted scenes, bloopers, and a "making of" included. For those of us who grew up "Nerd", it's a priceless collection to add to your DVD library.
As for Part II, I'm one to admit that it's a fairly blatant retread of its classic predecessor. Like Part I, this one has our heroes going through their paces to overcome the odds against them. There's the new musical number that's reminiscent of the climactic performance that helped the guys win the fraternity competition. Poindexter's nearsightedness is taken advantage of for a few cheap laughs again. And Booger's almost as gross and nasty as ever before (Why 'almost', you ask? Well, take a look at the MPAA rating for the first "Nerds", then look at the rating for this one. Yeah, see what I mean?).Read more ›
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.Read more ›

I love these flicks. Revenge of the nerds 1 is awsome, Revenge of the nerds 2 is a bit lame, but i still like it. Hopefully they will make a revenge of the nerds 3 & 4 Dvd.Published on May 20 2006 by Anthony Bucci
My Copy of this product only came with one of the movies - Revenge of the Nerds 2. I would have never paid for this movie alone. The first is a classic worthy of the price. Read morePublished on Aug. 16 2005
