In 1954, a group of Florida high schoolers seek out to help their buddy lose his virginity, which leads them to seek revenge on a sleazy nightclub owner and his redneck sheriff brother for harassing them.
The naughty high schoolers of Angel Beach High now seek revenge on a group of KKK religious fanatics and corrupt politicians who want to shut down their Shakespeare production after they cast a Seminole transfer student in the lead.
When lovable nerds Gilbert and Lewis embark on their freshman year at Adams College, little do they realize the dangers that await them. They are beset by taunting from the jocks of Alpha Beta fraternity, which only worsens when the jocks accidentally burn down their house and toss the freshmen out of the freshmen dorm. To make matters more problematic, Lewis develops a crush on pretty Betty Childs, popular sorority sister and quarterback's girlfriend. Joined by the aptly named Booger and the violin-playing Poindexter, the nerds soon realize they must form their own fraternity in self-defense. Soon the tables are turned as the nerds employ high-tech warfare against the jocks.... but can they really succeed and make a difference? Written by

There were two scenes in the movie that were either cut or not given context, that deal with the fact that Stan Gable was a nerd at heart but was too afraid and ashamed to reveal it. Curtis Armstrong discussed the cut scene during an online interview where he praised Ted McGinley's acting; it shows Stan leaving the endless Alpha Beta party and going to his room, after which he puts on a pair of glasses and begins reading a textbook, but when one the frat brothers calls at the door for him to rejoin the party, he puts the glasses and book in a drawer and sadly walks out. This scene informs another sequence the ending of the movie, where the nerds triumph, Stan Gable was not sad for losing to nerds, but sad because he knew he was a nerd at heart and was not able to reveal it out of fear of being bullied and humiliated. In the third film, this idea is used for the film's final scenes, where Stan (who once again had been bullying nerds) tells a courtroom that he is a nerd himself and will no longer hide it; he even uses the phrase "come out of the closet" in reference to admitting this publicly.

Many of the videos the Nerds receive of the Pis using the cameras are from angles that were not attainable with any of the ceiling-mounted cameras. See more »
I do not know what this world is coming to. See that man over there. We arrested him for mopery.
Mopery is exposing yourself to a blind person. I am sorry about your window, fellas, but that's out of our jurisdiction. This sounds more like a fraternity prank. But there's only one organization that can handle such matters.
What is that?
The Greek Council.

Revenge of the Nerds (1984) was a surprise hit. The film follows the adventures of two "nerds" as they go to college and try to join a fraternity. Oh the trials and tribulations they go through. Robert Carradine and Anthony Edwards are the two "nerds"who do everything they can to try and fit in with the rest of the college crowd.
This one is the first and best of the series. They should have left well enough alone. But since this was made during the 80's, a mandatory sequel was made. I recommend this movie. It's entertaining and worth watching. But like all 80's movies
it has to have a message. That's my only real complaint about the movie. A funny film none the less. Just avoid the rest of the series.
Worth a view.
