Storyline

The third movie in the Nerds series: The nerds are now in control of the university, as a result of Lewis Skolnick and the rest's actions in the two previous movies. A new generation of sportsmen arrive, however, determined on winning the school back. The principle, himself an ex-nerd fighter, helps them, and the nerds return to suppression. Harold Skolnick needs help from his uncle Lewis, the hero of the first two movies. Lewis, however, are not too proud of his nerd past, and won't reveal any of it, much less help his nephew. However, his wife makes him change his mind, and with help from his friends from the first two movies, they start the fight to win the school back, using classic nerd tricks.

Trivia

According to an interview in Maxim celebrating the 20th anniversary of the first "Revenge" movie, when it was revealed that Anthony Edwards wasn't going to be in the third movie because he was busy shooting "some medical show in Chicago", the response from the cast was, "They make one of those every year in Hollywood, why's he wasting his time?". The show that Edwards was busy making, of course, was ER (1994). See more »

Goofs

Stan Gable says he was "class of 80" at Adams College. Lewis Skolnick said he was "class of 81." Neither one of these can be true; both were still attending Adams in 1984 (as depicted in the first movie). See more »

My brief review of the film
18 June 2005 | by sol-See all my reviews

With the likable characters from the first two films all grown up, they are given far smaller supporting roles here, as we are introduced to a new range of characters, most of which are sadly are underdeveloped and lack the charm of the original nerds. In spite of this, the usual silliness, predictability, and fades to black that carry on far too long, the film is still moderately entertaining, and there are quite a few songs that are amusing to listen to. It is not a very well made film, but it is engaging enough to keep one watching for the running time, even if it is far off the level of the first two entries in the series.
