Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a gross parody of its original. And since the original was a gross parody to begin with, the whole thing begins to seem gaseous, overbright, hideously inflated, as if all the bodily function jokes were about to belch it right off the screen."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times
"Because the cast is basically the same in both parts of the Nerds saga, the blame for the saga's decline must be assigned elsewhere. A good bet is that the change in director and screenwriters."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"If these guys are so smart, why do they win their final victory with nothing more subtle than a punch in the mouth, backed up by a military tank?"
‑ David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
""Babes and brewskis" are just not enough to carry an entire picture."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"has little to offer that wasn't done better by the first movie"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"By all evidence, to make Nerds II, it took over 1,000 people with an aggregate IQ of under 1."
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
"The leading characters may have high IQs, but most of the humor rests a few degrees south of lowbrow."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Tribune
"This is fairly clever."
‑ Ben Yagoda, Philadelphia Daily News
"Another crazy jaunt from the put-upon geeks"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"This one's on automatic pilot all the way."
‑ Pat Graham, Chicago Reader
"The nerds' rap number, in which they sing of nerd pride, is probably the high point of this whole endeavor."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"One hopes that more inspiration comes to the creation of Nerds III, which already is being planned. The essence of the nerds needs to be resurrected."
‑ Candice Russell, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"The first was passable. This is getting painful."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
