As graduation nears for the class of 1955 at Angel Beach High, the gang once again faces off against their old enemy, Porky, who wants them to throw the school's championship basketball game because he's betting on the opposing team.
When lovable nerds Gilbert and Lewis embark on their freshman year at Adams College, little do they realize the dangers that await them. They are beset by taunting from the jocks of Alpha Beta fraternity, which only worsens when the jocks accidentally burn down their house and toss the freshmen out of the freshmen dorm. To make matters more problematic, Lewis develops a crush on pretty Betty Childs, popular sorority sister and quarterback's girlfriend. Joined by the aptly named Booger and the violin-playing Poindexter, the nerds soon realize they must form their own fraternity in self-defense. Soon the tables are turned as the nerds employ high-tech warfare against the jocks.... but can they really succeed and make a difference?Written by

There was a deleted subplot in which Stan Gable had a nerd brother, and a scene was written in which Gable's nerd brother steps in to prevent him from being beaten by the tough Tri-Lambdas near the ending of the film. See more »

You know, when you were a baby in your crib, your father looked down at you, he had but one hope - "Someday, my son will grow to be a man." Well look at you now; you just got your asses whipped, by a bunch of goddamn nerds.

*Nerds*! Well, if I was you, I'd do something about it. I would get up and redeem myself in the eyes of my father, my Maker, and my *coach*!

The Castilian Spanish version was titled "La Revancha de los Novatos", "The Revenge of the Freshmans". The word "Nerd" was changed to "Freshman", and that was kept for the next movies too. See more »
Revenge of the Nerds (1984) was a surprise hit. The film follows the adventures of two "nerds" as they go to college and try to join a fraternity. Oh the trials and tribulations they go through. Robert Carradine and Anthony Edwards are the two "nerds"who do everything they can to try and fit in with the rest of the college crowd.
This one is the first and best of the series. They should have left well enough alone. But since this was made during the 80's, a mandatory sequel was made. I recommend this movie. It's entertaining and worth watching. But like all 80's movies
it has to have a message. That's my only real complaint about the movie. A funny film none the less. Just avoid the rest of the series.
Worth a view.
