Revenge of the Nerds 1984 Movie Poster ImageRevenge of the Nerds was released in 1984 and remains one of the funniest movies from the 1980’s.

The original spawned 3 more sequels with the last, “Revenge Of The Nerds IV – Nerds in Love”, being released 10 years later in 1994.

“Adams College has the best computer department in the country.”

After enduring abuse from cocky frat boys and their snotty girlfriends, freshmen nerds Lewis and Gilbert start a fraternity of brainy and socially inept cohorts in order to wreak revenge. The antics culminate in an annual fraternity decathlon.

These guys would have become the Bill Gates or Steve jobs of our day. Maybe they would get the girl. They’d have the money and the power.


“Times are changing Betty. These nerds are a threat to our way of life.”

College freshmen Skolnick and Gilbert form their own fraternity for computer-whiz misfits. In this college campus comedy, a group of nerds must overcome the scornful attitudes and derisive pranks of the football and fraternity groups.
