Storyline

A nerd is harassed by punks, and is the object of ridicule at work. Enamoured by a co-worker, he buys a tape series on how to be cool, summons up his nerve, and goes to the co-worker's house, only to find her in the clutches of another co-worker. Dejected, he goes out on the town and parties with some babes, but when their friends, who turn out to be the same punks that harassed him earlier, trash him again something snaps, and the irritants in his life begin experiencing an attrition problem.

give me a rad 'do
10 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"GIVE ME A RAD 'DO" -one of the best phrases from any movie ever! this nerd attempts to "be cool" by instruction of a set of VHS tapes on how to be cool. and goes to the beauty shop to get a rad hair-do. the result is like every 80's hairstyle all rolled into one. hilarious!~ there are many many other super funny parts that i don't want to give away. please see for yourself!this movie is the best horror/comedy i have ever seen. if you like nerds, or the 80's, or both this movie is right for you.nerd!nerd!nerd! the special effects are also a riot. please see this film. you will not regret it. and you will immediately want to show all of your friends.
