Storyline

A nerd is harassed by punks, and is the object of ridicule at work. Enamoured by a co-worker, he buys a tape series on how to be cool, summons up his nerve, and goes to the co-worker's house, only to find her in the clutches of another co-worker. Dejected, he goes out on the town and parties with some babes, but when their friends, who turn out to be the same punks that harassed him earlier, trash him again something snaps, and the irritants in his life begin experiencing an attrition problem.

Receptionist: Uh-huh. Well what can I do for you?

An instant classic!
6 June 1999 | by Nic 420See all my reviews

This movie was amazing. I don't think I've ever seen anything with the magic of Killer Nerd. Toby Radloff played an excellent nerd, and the acting was great. Although the budget was a little big for my taste, it was still one of the best nerd movies ever made.
