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.

Inept, but hilarious
23 July 2002 | by (Chattanooga) – See all my reviews

I find nothing so enjoyable as a "good" bad movie. Now, keep in mind the movie must meet several criteria in order to be a "good" bad movie: 1--It can't be a cash cow slapped together to make a few bucks (like Halloween 8 or Jason X). 2--At some point you have to say to yourself "were they really trying to make something meaningful/memorable and they failed so miserably that this film is now fodder for simple amusement?" 3--The special effects have to be not-so-special effects or special defects; such as poorly-executed jump-cuts during death scenes, models that are clearly plastic used in place of humans, and the use of rubber limbs. For these reasons and many more, I wholeheartedly recommend that bad movie lovers (and fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000) rent or purchase this classic film. Let's examine the criteria: 1--I don't think Riot Films was looking to make big bucks on this one (though they do throw Toby Radloff's name around quite frequently on the box). 2--Nerd, (pause for emphasis) what a stupid word. (Watch it and you'll see what I mean). 3--Watch it--'nuff said. My rating--9/10--my roommates from college and I ran around our apartment shouting "NERD NERD NERD" and "BLOOD RED WITH BRAINS" for days. Coincidentally, I purchased this film off eBay from one of the producers of the film, and he was a real nice guy.
