Another Case of an Unnecessary Sequel
20 August 2001 | by tfrizzellSee all my reviews

"Revenge of the Nerds" was far from a great film, but its enormous box office success led to this dud of a sequel. The major players are back and attend a conference in Fort Lauderdale only to be bullied again by the dreaded Alpha Betas. Robert Carradine is back, but Anthony Edwards only makes a token appearance and is sorely missed here. The same is true with James Cromwell who has about the same length of screen-time as before, but does not make his presence known as well as before. In all the film is nearly a total waste. There are some good looking women in bit parts and that may be the greatest attraction. A young Courtney Thorne-Smith sizzles as Carradine's love interest. 2 stars out of 5.
