Quotes

Arnold Poindexter: So what you're saying essentially is, is that along with infinite space which extends beyond perpetual bigness there's also infinite smallness?
Harold Wormser: [nods head in agreement]
Arnold Poindexter: How?
Harold Wormser: Easy. Take an asymptotic line and extend it outward.
Arnold Poindexter: Oh.
Stewart: Right, right, right. So perpetual bigness exists simultaneously with perpetual smallness. What was I thinking?
Ogre: What if uh C-A-T really spelled dog?
Arnold Poindexter: Wow.
Harold Wormser: God.
Stewart: Yeah.

Very Silly
2 January 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

We all know that this was not as good as the first nerds, how can it be when the first one was so original?. The sequel is more of the same, but not as funny, although many will find humor in "the master", particularly if you are an advocate of toilet humor. Interesting to see Courtney Thorne Smith in an early role, pre Melrose and Ally McBeal. And we all get to see the original nerds again, even Anthony Edwards makes a few guest appearances. Probably a good film to watch when you are not functioning that well, because then you will not really have the opportunity to realise just how bad this film is in comparison to the many great films out there. Yet still there are many that are worse, and let us not forget this film was made in 1987, when comedies in the same vein as Nerds were immensely popular. Its not a good film, but its still watchable, I guess some of us find pleasure in juvenile campus comedies- even if we don't admit it to that many people.
