Revenge of the Nerds

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

Of all movie genres, the Yankee hi-jinks college comedy, populated by nauseating stereotypes (the hunky super-bonker sportsman, the outrageous but loveable slob, the token black man with riddim, girls with huge busty substances) is surely one of the most expendable. Kanew's film takes a timely hatchet to them all, with a bunch of nerds, fed up with being dumped on by the star fraternity, deciding on all-out confrontation to seek retribution. The resulting mêlée occasionally degenerates to utter filth (the belching contest has to be heard to be believed), but most of the time is a fine balance of send-up and superior slapstick. The only worthy successor to Animal House.
