The public does not forget it. The new generations may not remember the movie ‘Revenge of the Nerds’, but there is a group of people born in the eighties who still remember it as one of the best comedies released in those years.
The film premiered in 1984 and was directed by Jeff Kanew and starring Robert Carradine, Anthony Edwards and John Goodman.
With the original title of ‘Revenge of the Nerds’, the film told the story of a group of young people suffering from bullyng in the university by the Alpha-Beta brotherhood.RELATED
Led by Louis and Gilbert, they are classified as ‘nerds’ for being intelligent and not very graceful. However, this does not make them go back and wish to take revenge on the members of Alfa-Beta; composed of popular youth and football players.
Thus the nerds form their own brotherhood called ‘Lambda Lambda Lambda’ where they compete to win the elections of the university council, the highest authority of university students.
For this purpose they carry out various competitions to be accepted by the students of the university. In one of them comes a scene that is listed as one of the funniest in the movie.
In this sequence you can see the members of ‘Lambda Lambda Lambda’, perform a musical number where synthesizers predominate.
Scene of Revenge of the Nerds The remake that was not completed
The film had two sequels, but none was as acclaimed as the original. It is known that in 2007 a remake was thought and even several scenes were filmed, but it was canceled because the producers did not find a university campus as large as the one seen in the first film.
Thus, the 20th Century Fox undone the project and representatives declared that it is very unlikely that a new version will be resumed in the coming years.
Revenge of the Nerds is one of the most remembered comedies of the 80s.
