In this follow-up to Revenge of the Nerds the nerdy frat boys from Lambda Lambda Lambda go to Ft. Lauderdale to a national frat conference where they again must outwit the thick-tongued jock frat-boys who are also at the conference. This they can do. ~ Rovi

It's a gross parody of its original. And since the original was a gross parody to begin with, the whole thing begins to seem gaseous, overbright, hideously inflated, as if all the bodily function jokes were about to belch it right off the screen.
By all evidence, to make Nerds II, it took over 1,000 people with an aggregate IQ of under 1.
Because the cast is basically the same in both parts of the Nerds saga, the blame for the saga's decline must be assigned elsewhere. A good bet is that the change in director and screenwriters.
The leading characters may have high IQs, but most of the humor rests a few degrees south of lowbrow.
The nerds' rap number, in which they sing of nerd pride, is probably the high point of this whole endeavor.
One hopes that more inspiration comes to the creation of Nerds III, which already is being planned. The essence of the nerds needs to be resurrected.
Another crazy jaunt from the put-upon geeks
The first was passable. This is getting painful.
