3. Revenge Of The Nerds (1984)
Chances of getting laid (1-10): 4. Nerd collision! When the Tri-Lambs throw a party and only the Omega Mus show up, it’s everyone sitting in chairs on the opposite side of the room. That is, until Booger pulls out his “wonder joints.”
The drink situation (1-10): 4. Who knows what Booger is mixing in those drinks. The party doesn’t really get started until the pot comes out.
Chances of police interference (1-10): 1. What self-respecting police officer is going to break up the biggest nerd party of the year?
How’s the music? (1-10): 3. Terrible music on the record player accompanied by a solo violin performance by Poindexter? Yeah, no thanks. It’s nearly rescued by the appearance of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” but by that time it’s too late.
So Skolnick, Gilbert, Poindexter, Wormser, Booger, and the rest of Lambda Lambda Lambda get stood up at their own party by the hotties of Pi Delta Pi. Who cares? The nerds decide to push forward with the shindig anyway, eventually inviting the equally geektastic ladies of Omega Mu over to party.
It’s slow going at first as they sit on opposite sides of the room, not even talking to each other, let alone getting funky. That all changes when Booger whips out a few of his “wonder joints,” they all light up, and the party turns into a laugh-filled affair with eyeglass-swapping, make out sessions, and dances to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” It’s a feel-good-party-story that only goes to show you that you can pick on the Tri-Lambs all you want, but you can’t keep a good nerd down.
