Quotes

Roger: [admitting that he framed the Tri-Lambs] OK. Maybe I did. What are you gonna do about it, Skolnick? You gonna make a little speech? It's not gonna do any good. Wanna know why? Because I'm strong and you're weak. Because I'm the type of guy that everybody here wants to be like, and you are pathetic. That's the way it is. That's the way it's always gonna be, and there's nothing you or your pencil-neck geek friends can do or say about it. Comprende, dickhead?

Not As Good As The Original But Provides Some Laughs
26 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Revenge Of The Nerds II Nerds In Paradise may not a comedy classic like it's predecessor Revenge Of The Nerds but it's still an enjoyable movie to watch.This time our nerd heroes must once again fight back against their most hated enemy. Robert Carradine's character Lewis grows up quite a bit and stands up for his fraternity brothers.

Curtis Armstrong is as always his funny self when playing nose picker Booger his character is more hilarious, he says some great lines in the film. A year has passed since a group of intelligent and awkward young men banded together to form a fraternity to fight back against the Alpha Betas. They succeeded in their battle of brains vs. brawn guaranteeing nerd freedom, Now Lewis (Carradine) and his friends Wormser (Cassese), Pointdexter (Busfield), Lamar (Scott) & Booger (Armstrong) are about to represent Adams College at a united fraternity conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Once there they are prosecuted and picked on again by another chapter of the Alpha Betas run by Roger Latimore (Whitford). Sunny Carstairs (Smith) a hotel employee befriends the nerdy gang and falls in love with Lewis.

Towards the end after being marooned on an island the boys find military equipment and using an army tank they head back to the conference to confront Roger and his group with the help of Ogre (Gibb) who becomes a member of the Lambda Lambdas after being kicked out of the Alphas.

This film may not be a laugh fest but certainly provides very little humour and memorable quotes.
