User Reviews

not nearly as good as the first one,but still not bad
6 July 1999 | by jaws!See all my reviews

I love the first revenge of the nerds. The second one is not nearly as good as the first one, but still pretty good. The nerds are still funny in this movie. Booger is once again the funniest of them all. The second one is also entertaining at times. They could've make this movie better if they would've kept the nerds at Adam's college, but the second one is still watchable, and funny. I give revenge of the nerds II: nerds in paradise **1/2 out of ****
