Netflix Challenge Day 25 - Revenge Of The Nerds


 photo RevengeOfTheNerds_zps2f0952b3.jpg

After enduring abuse from frat boys and their snotty girlfriends, two freshmen start a fraternity of brainy, socially inept cohorts to exact revenge.

Best friends Lewis Skolnick and Gilbert Lowe are a little bit on the nerdy side of life and are taking the big step and are going to Adams College to study computer science.  The Alpha Betas, a fraternity which houses most if not all of the football team and other random jocks (and enjoy nothing more then drinking and partying) have a little accident and burn their house down, the Coach tells them to turf out all the freshmen and move into their dorm. 

All the freshmen are now sleeping in the hall on fold up beds and are allowed to join a fraternity early so they can move out the hall. Most are successful but the nerds are left behind, they do to the Pi Delta Psi to ask for help are sent to the Alpha Betas to ask if they will take them in but little do they know that the Pi Delta Psi are in the the Alpha Betas. The nerds go to get help from the Greek Council but its president Stan Gable just happens to also be the head of the Alpha Betas and turn them down because they are not part of a fraternity. The nerds apply to 30 national fraternity's but all reject them bar 1, Lambda Lambda Lambda which just happens to be an all black fraternity agree to meet them but they turn them down, that is till Poindexter points out a bylaw stating that they have to take them on a 60 day probationary period. The nerds decide to throw a party to show to Lambda Lambda Lambda that they can be responsible and this is where the fun starts.

This is one of them little cult films along the lines of Porkys (but not as crude) and is kind of like the spiritual forefather for films like Van Wilder and the American Pie series.

Yea the acting is not the best out there but what do you expect from a film like this? Special effects? hmmmm.....the only thing I can think of is when a nerd is flirting in computer class and makes a 2 computer people hold hand and dance and to be fair it was not that bad at all.

So to sum up it is a little bit dated but still really enjoyable.
