"Revenge of the Nerds" is an unaired pilot based on the movie. In fact, it's pretty much a condensed version of the movie. Lewis, Gilbert, Booger and Wormser are kicked out of their dorm by... See full summary »

The set up shot of the island where the nerds are being taken is the same set up shot used in the second and third seasons of Gilligan's Island. The Island is known as "Coconut Island" and is in Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii. See more »
During the jail scene, two of the boys are playing chess. Considering they are experienced players (Skolnick's remark at the beginning of the movie); they should have seen that the board was in the wrong position. See more »
What do you think they are going to do?

OK it's not as good as the original, but it's a fun 90 minutes anyway
The 1984 comedy 'Revenge of the Nerds' was a hit in it's time and has had a much deserved following for decades. It's no surprise that a sequel, let alone 3, was produced a few years later. Though it didn't do nearly as well as it's predecessor, this sequel is still a fun way to kill an hour and a half.
Pros: A funny 'Star Wars' style opening. A still very appealing original cast and some great newcomers. Some good humor and sight gags. Plenty of beautiful Florida scenery. A quick pace. The datedness adds to the overall fun and feel of the movie. Like the original there's plenty memorable scenes.
Cons: Some of the humor falls flat. The plot is pretty thin. They try to recreate some things from the original, for example the music performance, but with lesser results.
Final thoughts: None of the sequels to the original 'Nerds' film will ever be mistaken for comedy gems, but you could certainly do much worse. At least they didn't make as many sequels as were made to 'Police Academy.'
My rating: 3/5
