As graduation nears for the class of 1955 at Angel Beach High, the gang once again faces off against their old enemy, Porky, who wants them to throw the school's championship basketball game because he's betting on the opposing team.
The naughty high schoolers of Angel Beach High now seek revenge on a group of KKK religious fanatics and corrupt politicians who want to shut down their Shakespeare production after they cast a Seminole transfer student in the lead.
Set in 1954, a group of Florida high schoolers seek out to help a buddy lose his virginity, which leads them to seek revenge on a sleazy nightclub owner and his redneck sheriff brother for harassing them.
The third movie in the Nerds series: The nerds are now in control of the university, as a result of Lewis Skolnick and the rest's actions in the two previous movies. A new generation of sportsmen arrive, however, determined on winning the school back. The principle, himself an ex-nerd fighter, helps them, and the nerds return to suppression. Harold Skolnick needs help from his uncle Lewis, the hero of the first two movies. Lewis, however, are not too proud of his nerd past, and won't reveal any of it, much less help his nephew. However, his wife makes him change his mind, and with help from his friends from the first two movies, they start the fight to win the school back, using classic nerd tricks. Written by

According to an interview in Maxim celebrating the 20th anniversary of the first "Revenge" movie, when it was revealed that Anthony Edwards wasn't going to be in the third movie because he was busy shooting "some medical show in Chicago", the response from the cast was, "They make one of those every year in Hollywood, why's he wasting his time?". The show that Edwards was busy making, of course, was ER (1994). See more »
Lewis' car has a California license plate, but earlier films in the series implied that Adams College was in Arizona. See more »
I recently bought the "atomic wedgie" edition of the Revenge of the Nerds. It has all the four movies, so I watched Revenge of the Nerds III: The Next Generation this afternoon and once again after looking at the IMDb rating, I was a bit scared on what to expect, but so far, I'm really liking these movies. Yeah, they're a bit ridicules, not to mention that I think Revenge of the Nerds III: The Next Generation took a different direction than the original Nerd film, but it's all good. I thought it was actually a fun story and a new introduction of all nerds uniting together and showing who really takes care of the jocks in the world.
Lewis has now turned himself into a huge stud and is living with his wife, Betty. His nephew and his nephew's friend have gone to the same college and have joined the Lamb's, but we have a new dean in town, Stan is back! He and an alumni of the school are joining together to ban all nerds from the town. The nerds call on Lewis to get back to his nerd roots and help them take over the town, hopefully Lewis can get past this silly smooth operator appearance, because it's not working for him or the nerds that need him most.
Revenge of the Nerds III: The Next Generation is nothing special, but it still has a few laughs. I really didn't think it was bad, at least not as bad as the rating would on IMDb led me on. Revenge of the Nerds III: The Next Generation is just a fun movie that I think people need to be open too, it's a different direction in the story but it works over all. So just give it a shot, I think you'll actually enjoy this story, after all, everyone's gotta love the nerds.
