Even though the majority of the characters, with the exception of Wormser, were supposed to range from 18 to 21, many of the cast members were either in their early 30s or in their late 20s. See more »
Gilbert's intent to calculate an "exact ETA" makes no sense, as ETA means "estimated time of arrival". The best he could produce would be a close or "reasonable" estimate. See more »
Times are changing, Betty. These nerds are a threat to our way of life.

The version that airs on VH1 Classic cuts out most of the more profane language, blurs the word "head" on Booger's "Gimme Head Til I'm Dead" shirt, blurs the jocks' butts during the mooning sequence, cuts the good majority of the "watching the Pis on the cameras" scene, including Booger's infamous "We've got bush!" line. However, unlike most other edited for TV versions, the phrase "god damn" is uncensored. See more »
Revenge Of The Nerds: One of the best of it's kind
I was late to the party, though I grew up on films like this I never got round to watching the Revenge Of The Nerds movies but I'm really glad I finally did.
I expected Porkys (1981), I expected a semi-brainless raunchy 1980's comedy but what I found was SO much more.
With an immensely talented varied cast ranging from those who became huge stars like John Goodman to underrated talents like Curtis Armstrong this near perfectly crafted comedy benefits from an outstanding cast who make the film that much more special.
Side splittingly funny, well written, excellent 80's soundtrack, feel good vibe and without excess T&A the Revenge Of The Nerds ticks every box twice and entertained me in a way I never expected and haven't experienced from a comedy like this in recent memory.
I personally cannot wait to get around to the sequels and find out what our Nerd friends get up to next.
