-INTRODUCTION: The Revenge Of The Nerds films are comedy masterpieces. And finally, the first two entries in the series have arrived on DVD - together on a single disc! Read on for my review of the films, as well as the DVD itself.
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.
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?

Revenge of the Nerds and Revenge of the Nerds II reminds me of when teen comedy was funny, and not the tired routine that it has come to encompass in today's Hollywood machine. The jokes were funny, the characters were light-hearted, and your friends would always crack references from the script for the next week at school. Although they were filmed 3 years apart, they take place chronologically only 1 year apart. One can't help but to notice the big difference not only in clothing style but also in music. From Nerd-Punk (read: pseudo-Devo) to Nerd-Rap (read: pseudo-Beastie Boys), the difference is like night and day. But they can cook! I still catch myself singing phrases from the songs while at work or driving in my car.
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.

I remember sneakin' my first look at RotN Part I when it first came out on HBO™. Or was Showtime™ where I first saw it? Well, in any case I was about eleven years old, and it was on during an evening when the 'rents were out doin' something or another. It was my first exposure to the amazing and varied 80s-teen/college-flick-where-the-lovable-losers-pull-one-over-on-the-popular-guys-in-the-end genre, and I wasn't sure what to make of it at the outset. But as I got older and entered the realm of teenage geekiness myself, this flick kept getting' funnier every time I watched it. Maybe it was because I saw a little bit of myself in the gallant geeks (well, except for Lamar, perhaps) who band together to fight back against their more-popular and athletically-superior foes, or some such nonsense. Then again, it might've just been Lewis Skolnick's (Robert Carradine) annoying guffaw; it gets me giggling like a little girl every time I hear it. Then there's Booger's (Curtis Armstrong) gross-out tactics and crass horniness, which rarely fails to get a laugh from me. And for some reason, I love listening to the nerds' climactic musical number despite its dated new-wave cheesiness.
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?).

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.
