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?). Oh yes, and Skolnick manages to bag the babe at the end here, just like he did last time.
But despite the sequel's glaringly obvious similarities to the first 'RotN', I got quite a few laughs from it. My fave funny moment was Ogre's cannabis-induced conjecture during the desert island scene. That was a pretty precious moment in the annals of 80's screwball comedies, lemme tells ya. Also notable here is Booger being mentored by an elderly man skilled in the Far East style of slobbery. It's a pretty silly shot at the Karate Kid™ flicks that were really big at the time, and added a layer of gag-me-with-a-spoon-style grodiness to the flick.
One weird thing about this sequel-well, weird to me, anyway-- was Gilbert's (Anthony Edwards) minimal involvement in this follow-up. Personally, I think his small chunk of face time was due to his receding hairline, which is pretty apparent in the scenes he's in. It's kinda hard to play a college student convincingly when your pate's showin', ya know? Fortunately, he managed to land a prime role on ER™ as George Clooney's bestest best buddy in the whole wide world, and hasn't looked back since! Meanwhile, poor Robert "Lewis Skolnick" Carradine would go on to star in and executive produce the last two horrific installments in the Revenge of the Nerds™ saga without his good buddy. Them's the breaks in show biz...
I found the picture quality of both flicks to be pretty good, though not absolutely top-notch. And the sound mix is about as good as one can expect from a double-feature DVD. As for special features: aside from a few trailers, there ain't any. So just sit back and enjoy the good, clean family fun you'll experience as soon as you hit the Play button...
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.
This heart felt tale represents the vast majority of people. The little guys, the not so beutiful people, a very funny movie, 5 stars definite.
2)Revenge of the Nerds 2 continues the Tale of the misfits from Adams College. They have been selected to represent Adams College at the National Fraternity convention in Fort Lauderdale. Once again they face the odds as they face prejudice and violent backlash by the angery Alpha Betas. they fight back of course and in the end conquer Fort LAuderdale.
This one is a hit in some aspects and a miss in others. There is some good meaning there but in the end falls flat on it's face at others. A 3 star movie at best.
SO over all Revenge of the Nerds 5 stars, Revenge of the Nerds 2 3 stars, do the math and it comes out to 4 stars for this DVD.
20 years later, it still has me gut laughing; no mean feat.
The sequel, however, was as slight and inoffensive as it could be. Worth the rental, but a definite step-down in all respects. It was strictly a cash-in, and really should have been the last in the series (but then how else would Robert Carradine have found work?).
Check out the great cameo of James Cromwell as Louis' father; every biggish film star has a past...
