Thirty years ago “nerd” was as far away as possible from being the hip pop culture tag it is today. The nerds of the 80s were being shoved into lockers for their love of X-Men comics.
The film’s cast was embarrassed to be in the movie, simply because it had the four-letter word in the title. James Cromwell’s admission, “I didn’t want to have to say to someone, ‘I’m in Revenge Of The Nerds‘,” is generally how most of the cast felt at the time. Revenge of the Nerds has stood the test of time and today could practically serve as a historical footnote in the evolution of the nerd.
