In 1984's Revenge of the Nerds, we follow the story of two social outcasts, Lewis and Gilbert. They both enroll in Adams College as freshmen, hoping to make friends and finally fit in. However, they may have underestimated the hostile environment of fraternities and jocks. Their dreams of popularity crumble when they attempt to join the Alpha Betas fraternity, but are met with humiliation and forced to live in the rundown freshman dorms. Soon, they realize they are not alone in their plight, and gather a group of misfit fellow freshmen who share in their misery.

Determined to make a statement, they band together to form their own fraternity and recruit members from other marginalized groups on campus, such as the Lambda Lambda Lambda fraternity, consisting of mostly African American students, and the Omega Mu sorority, made up of overweight, nerdy women.

As their new fraternity prepares for the annual Greek Games, a series of athletic competitions between the fraternities, they must face off against the Alpha Betas, their arch-nemesis. Despite the obstacles, they manage to pull off a victory, and through their hard work and dedication, they earn respect from the rest of the student body.

The movie, while primarily a comedy, also tackles issues of discrimination and prejudice towards marginalized groups, particularly in the college setting. Revenge of the Nerds proves that with the right support and determination, anyone can overcome adversity and achieve greatness.

In conclusion, Revenge of the Nerds is a classic comedy that has stood the test of time. Its message of inclusivity and acceptance resonates even today, making it a must-watch for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider.

Revenge of the Nerds is a 1984 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.6 and a MetaScore of 44.
