Do any of you have dates, besides Gilbert?
Yeah, but that's with a guy.
Well, what about you, Booger?
I've been out combing the high schools all day!

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.
