Revenge of the Nerds (1984)

Revenge of the Nerds Quote: “I do not know what this world is coming to. See that man over there. We arrested him for mopery” – Sergeant

We all remember “Revenge of The Nerds” as a fun ’80s college movie, but there’s a much darker side when you watch it today. What we once saw as pig pranks, masked sex, panty raids, crazy house parties and fiery undies now can be viewed as animal abuse, rape, theft, arson, hate crimes and assault.

From historical accuracy to production quality, let’s cock the hammer on this 90’s western and explore some hot topics, including: how many shells and double-barreled shotgun holds, when it’s permissible to seek a new wife, how long after an assassination attempt you must wait to play billiards, and the difference between Doc Holliday and Doc Hollywood.
