Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Revenge of the Nerds

The story takes place at Adams College. Lewis and Gilbert are brand new freshmen and stereotypical Geeks. The football team takes over the freshman dorms because their housing was destroyed by fire during a party. Lewis and Gilbert team up with other students who have been picked on and find a place where all of them can live together.

The football team continues a malicious assault on the group. The Nerds realize that they must fight back in order to live their lifestyle at Adams. It's brains verses brawn with an obvious but humorous ending. Although this film was probably meant for older teens, I still get quite a kick out of it at 40.
