“Revenge of the Nerds” (1984): OK, so it seems very dated, especially when the Tri-Lams give their synth-heavy concert in the great brotherhood of competition at the end. But it is clumsy, hot, sweet and ultimately ridiculous – and much better than having sex many arose in the early 80s. Anthony Edwards and Robert Carradine lead nerd home underdog against the jocks of Alpha Beta idiot, led by Ted McGinley. (A much thinner John Goodman is hilarious as football coach at the school.) A timeless David against Goliath battle, a story inspired by the tolerance and inclusion, only with big hair and booger jokes. It’s bad enough that there were suites – please, Hollywood, please, do not remake the original. [via wikipedia and other sources]
