StoryThe 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.
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.
