In 1954, a group of Florida high school students try to help their buddy lose his virginity, which leads them to seeking revenge on a sleazy nightclub owner and his redneck sheriff brother for harassing them.
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.

Teenage geniuses deal with their abilities while developing a high-powered laser for a university project. When their professor intends to turn their work into a military weapon, they decide to ruin his plans.
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.
When lovable nerds Gilbert and Lewis embark on their freshman year at Adams College, little do they realize the dangers that await them. They are beset by taunting from the jocks of Alpha Beta fraternity, which only worsens when the jocks accidentally burn down their house and toss the freshmen out of the freshmen dorm. To make matters more problematic, Lewis develops a crush on pretty Betty Childs, popular sorority sister and quarterback's girlfriend. Joined by the aptly named Booger and the violin-playing Poindexter, the nerds soon realize they must form their own fraternity in self-defense. Soon the tables are turned as the nerds employ high-tech warfare against the jocks.... but can they really succeed and make a difference?Written by

Because the script did not have much of a plot (as the interviewed actors and filmmakers have stated), many of the actors were allowed to ad-lib scenes. Timothy Busfield recalls that he ad-libbed Poindexter's painful scream when watching the video of the girls dorm. Robert Carradine remembered that in the scene where he "serviced" Betty in the funhouse, his line was originally "All jocks think about is sports. Ever since we're ten, all we nerds ever think about is sex." He did not like the line and dropped the "Ever since we're ten" part. Curtis Armstrong recalls that it was by pure chance that Booger and Takashi ended up bunked next to each other in the gym and they improvised the running gag of them playing cards and Armstrong's line "What the fuck is a frush?"

During the Lambda/Omega Mu song, when Lamar is singing, Poindexter can be seen "bumping" to the music (going up on their toes) out of time with the others. Possibly deliberate since he is shown to be uncoordinated throughout the film. See more »
[in line at the Kissing Booth at the Homecoming Carnival]
A nerd? I'm not kissing a nerd.
You have to. I paid my money.
[Lewis tries to kiss Betty]
It's time for my break.
[Stan brings a short, fat, ugly woman, instead]
Kiss this, nerd.
I want to do it, Stan. All this kissing has made me horny.
God, Betty, you're like a goat.

The version of the film shown on Comedy Central cuts out a good chunk of the "roll call" scene, including the "why do they call you Booger" dialogue and a basketball landing in the bunk area. See more »
Revenge Of The Nerds: One of the best of it's kind
I was late to the party, though I grew up on films like this I never got round to watching the Revenge Of The Nerds movies but I'm really glad I finally did.
I expected Porkys (1981), I expected a semi-brainless raunchy 1980's comedy but what I found was SO much more.
With an immensely talented varied cast ranging from those who became huge stars like John Goodman to underrated talents like Curtis Armstrong this near perfectly crafted comedy benefits from an outstanding cast who make the film that much more special.
Side splittingly funny, well written, excellent 80's soundtrack, feel good vibe and without excess T&A the Revenge Of The Nerds ticks every box twice and entertained me in a way I never expected and haven't experienced from a comedy like this in recent memory.
I personally cannot wait to get around to the sequels and find out what our Nerd friends get up to next.
