Synopsis When boorish frat guys commandeer their humble dorm at Adams College, bespectacled Lewis, shy Gilbert, and the rest of the nerds retaliate by forming their own fraternity--and setting their sights on the coveted Greek Council. But it won't be easy, so they'll have to summon their smarts to beat the jocks at their own game. Much better than most films in its teen-sex genre, REVENGE OF THE NERDS features a stellar cast, including Robert Carradine, Anthony Edwards (ER), Timorthy Busfield (THE WEST WING), Curtis Armstrong (MOONLIGHTING), Ted McGinley (MARRIED WITH CHILDREN), and John Goodman (ROSEANNE).The University of Arizona agreed, then revoked permission for the filmmakers to shoot at the school, claiming the script was too bawdy. But the college ultimately changed its mind and even allowed many students to be hired as extras.Close friends Lewis and Gilbert are freshmen at their new college. Unfortunately, they are also nerds to the extreme: horn-rimmed glasses, ill-fitting, mismatched clothes, intelligence galore, etc. Naturally, the curvaceous coeds, juvenile jocks, and infantile frat brothers make their lives, and the lives of their fellow outcasts, a misery. But when the nerds decide to create their own fraternity, sexual and comedic hijinks ensue as the nerds seek vengeance against those who've done them wrong....REVENGE OF THE NERDS shows more than enough smarts...[T]he climactic be-yourself message is agelessly sweet. -- Grade: B
