Revenge of the Nerds (1984) Poster

Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When the horn players begin to play, officially commencing the Triathalon, the trumpet player on the right does not lip synch on cue. Towards the end, he is taking breaths when instead, he should be blowing into the instrument.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

In most frames of the Homecoming Carnival skit performed by the Pis, they clearly aren't singing, yet multiple voices are heard singing throughout the song. At one point in, the girls grunt at the same time they are singing.

During the Lambda/Omega Mu song, when Lamar is singing, Poindexter can be seen "bumping" to the music (going up on their toes) out of time with the others. Possibly deliberate since he is shown to be uncoordinated throughout the film.

As was listed in another goof, there were some inconsistencies with the scores during the Greek Games portion of the Homecoming Carnival. Part of this is because one of the events, a Chariot Race, was cut from the final version of the movie (the Chariot Race can be seen on the "panty raid edition" DVD under Deleted Scenes.)

When Coach Harris lectures the jocks following losing at the homecoming carnival, behind him is a blue wall with text reading "Only the strong shall survive" and a door that reads "COACH HARRIS." But when the Alpha Betas run out of the locker room, the blue wall has become white and there is no writing on it.

The trichloromethylene Takashi takes to counteract the alcohol does not exist. A common misconception is that they are talking about chloroform, which is also known as trichloromethane. Ingesting chloroform would have very different effects.

Revealing mistakes 

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.
