Revenge of the Nerds is the juvenile sex comedy perhaps most synonymous with the 1980s, alternating gags and scantily clad women with a power to the underdogs mentality that prompted three sequels. The handsome jocks of Alpha Beta, led by Stan (Ted McGinley), run Adams College, which means that when they burn down their house after a stunt involving grain alcohol and an open flame, they kick a bunch of socially inept freshman out of their dorm and into the gymnasium. But sleeping on cots is only

Somewhere in all the fluff and garbage is just enough heart to make Revenge of the Nerds one of the forefathers of a generation of light-hearted comedies like American Pie, American Pie 2 and American Wedding.
It's got everything for this kind of film %u2013 nudity, sex, swearing and dirty jokes.
the best t&a teen comedy
Pocket-protector fans, unite! Some funny moments.
Compared to most of today's gross-out extravaganzas... this exceedingly upbeat saga seems almost wholesome.
A teen-sex comedy with a brain!
It was an 80's thing.
The ultimate 80's teen comedy...Carradine and Edwards are gut-bustingly hilarious!
Hope for 4-eyed computer experts who let their mother's dress them.
One of the landmark tits and ass films of the eighties, and surprisingly a comedy with a lot of humor and even some heart.
Okay teen comedy, but nothing special.
he conflation of discriminated-against minorities and discriminated-against nerds is something of an uneasy pairing, but it does bring out the fact that predjudice is prejudice, no matter who it's aimed at or for what reason.
