Klaus Maria Brandauer,
Get out your white socks! This time our suave college heroes hit the road for fun and fraternity in Florida. Another opportunity for brains to triumph over brawn. How can the girls possibly resist their geeky charms? Written by

Bradley Whitford and Timothy Busfield play prominent roles in the film. Twelve years later both would go on the play prominent roles on The West Wing although in a somewhat different capacity. Whitford's character Josh Lyman is known as an intellectual, being a graduate of Harvard and Yale Law School. Busfield's character of Danny Concannon was a graduate of Notre Dame. The two were "enemies " in the film while in The West Wing they play members of two different staffs. Whitford working for the White House as Deputy Chief of Staff and Busfield as a White House correspondent. While the two staffs aren't necessarily advisaries (like the Tri-Lambs vs Alpha Betas) the two were certainly hostile to each other at times. See more »
In the scene where the Alpha Betas are in the hotel suite previously occupied by the Tri-Lambs before their arrest when framed for grand theft auto, Stewart shows up in a White Castle uniform looking for his "homies." There are no White Castle restaurants in Florida. See more »
To truly hock a loogie, one must not retrieve the phlegm from the throat, but from the soul.

The film opens with a Star Wars-like crawl (preceded by Skolnick's pocket protector) summarizing the Tri-Lambs exploits from the first film. See more »
Revenge of the Nerds 2: Nerds in Paradise is a horrible sequel. The only redeeming qualities is the sound track featuring Pseudo Echo's cover of "Funky Town", and .38 Special's "Take Me Back To Paradise". And though it was fun and somewhat nostalgic to see our favorite nerds again, the script was just awful, and the plot exceedingly thin.
This was clearly made for the sake of making the studio money. I had thought that it was a rushed sequel, as the script was so bad. However, this film was put out three years after the original, allowing for plenty of time for a quality plot and script to be developed. Like its contemporaries such as the Police Academy series, this sequel just lets the audience down and was unfortunately continued after this horrible train wreck.
