Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's clear, too, that the movie's almost complete dearth of laughs plays a significant role in its downfall..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Works mainly for the hilarious script, and very unique characters that are able to connect with audiences."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Somewhere in all the fluff and garbage is just enough heart to make Revenge of the Nerds one of the forefathers of a generation of light-hearted comedies like American Pie, American Pie 2 and American Wedding."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Calgary Movies
"the best t&a teen comedy"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"A teen-sex comedy with a brain!"
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"The kind of movie you saw on video when it was still forbidden fruit and loved it, only to find it much uglier with the rose-colored glasses removed."
‑ Rob Vaux,
"The nerds perpetuate a nasty streak of behavior toward women that violates the film's general live-and-let-live attitude, and it stains what is otherwise intended as raunchy but lighthearted fun."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"It's got everything for this kind of film %u2013 nudity, sex, swearing and dirty jokes."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Pocket-protector fans, unite! Some funny moments."
‑ Steve Crum,
"A low-caloric comedy."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Advances an interesting pro-diversity agenda: The 'nerds' aren't just brainy geeks but outcasts, including a flamboyant gay black man. (When big block letters that spell NERDS are set on fire outside the nerd house, you're reminded of burning crosses.)"
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Racy college comedy has heart; OK for older teens."
‑ Ellen Dendy, Common Sense Media
"a questionable classic at best."
‑ Christopher Null,
"Compared to most of today's gross-out extravaganzas... this exceedingly upbeat saga seems almost wholesome."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"It was an 80's thing."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
