Storyline

NERDLAND is the story of two best friends, aspiring screenwriter ELLIOT and aspiring actor JOHN, whose dreams of super-stardom have fizzled. With their 30th birthdays looming and their desperation growing, John and Elliot decide that in this 24/7, celebrity-obsessed world of over-shared navel-gazing, there are more ways to become famous -- or infamous -- then ever before. So why not become famous TODAY? NERDLAND is that day. Making up for what they lack in brains and talent with abundant, witless enthusiasm, John and Elliot troll Los Angeles on a fame-grab journey, encountering and abusing friends both new and old. Navigating their hyper-stimulating landscape of consumerism gone wild, our two consumers want desperately to be consumed -- and they will have their FAME, no matter what the cost.

Filthy, grim, cynical and definitely worth a watch
29 July 2017 | by bungeeman17See all my reviews

I've no idea why this movie has such a low score (about 5/10 at the time of writing.) It's basically a pretty entertaining (if somewhat dark) joke at the expense of modern celebrity culture. It certainly isn't overly profound or thought-provoking, we all know that there are a bunch of vacuous, TV-obsessed 20-somethings out there who constantly have their heads buried in their phones. But it doesn't deserve to be panned either.

The plot follows a couple of best friends as they trudge around L.A in a misguided attempt to achieve fame and infamy. The art style reminds me of Mission Hill, another seriously under-appreciated animation, which is also extremely bright and colourful. However, unlike Mission Hill, Nerdland opts for a much less innocent tone. Without dropping spoilers, it has a very Beavis & Butthead vibe to its comedic stylings, with lots of violence, filth and a generally grim subject matter.

If you have a dark sense of humour and enjoy something that oozes pop-culture references, give this movie a shot. You can certainly do much worse.
