No one will really be free until nerd persecution ends!
Revenge of the Nerds is a story about the underdog coming out on top. The story begins with us seeing Louis , a "nerd", and his buddy Gilbert leave for there first year in college. They are excited and ready for whatever College brings them...or are they. The minute they get there they are categorized as nerds and are kicked out of their rooms and must sleep in the gym with all the other nerds. A few of the boys come together and decide to form their own fraternity, Lambda Lambda Lambda. Together, the boys create great bonds of friendship, and get back at the Jocks that have made fun of them all their lives. In the end, the nerd gets the cheerleader and the guys come out on top.
This movie is filled with stereotypes. First of all, the nerds are exaggerated to the extreme. Some of them, like Gilbert and Louis have the glasses, the pocket protectors, the whole deal. The jocks of the films are complete meatheads. All they care about is football and they are Complete idiots.
Besides the film being hysterical, there is a moral to the film as well. It is wrong to categorize people into groups and then ostracize them. In this film, the jocks learn there lesson and the nerds get their "revenge."
