When lovable nerds Gilbert and Lewis embark on their freshman year at Adams College, little do they realize the perils that await them. They're 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.

Soon the tables are turned as the nerds employ high-tech warfare against the jocks.... but can they really win and make a difference? Written by

Larry B. Scott, who plays the homosexual Lamar, claims on the DVD Documentary that he had to over-compensate for his masculinity because people really thought he was gay. Beside this role, his other post-Nerd movies have been either action or drama. For example, he played a communication soldier in Extreme Prejudice, an astronaut in SpaceCamp, and a Cobra Kai in The Karate Kid. See more »

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.
