Hey ... she was into it when she found out it was a nerd. Because, y'know, he rocked her world. That could happen! ..... *cough*

"What the fuck are robster craws?"...and it being one of the rare movies in those days with full frontal nudity of college girls...which is never a bad thing.

This remake shit has got to stop. Let's do something original, huh, Hollywood?
Nov. 22, 2006, 9:12 a.m. CST
The powers that be in Hollywood realize a stinkbomb when they smell it and do the right thing... Now why they didn't do that with the 95% of the other films they release is still a mystery...

I don't much care about remaking this nerd film, but I like Chris Marquette in comedy roles, so I was looking forward to this one. He's pretty funny in The Girl Next Door, which I think was better than your average teen type film. Also, isn't the girl in this also the girl in Dallas, which seems like it's had similar problems? Maybe she's a curse of some sort.

...someone decides NOT to do a crappy remake... perhaps there's some sense left in the world after all. Sure Nerds wasn't high art, but let's face it, it's a classic. (And you know Bill Gates loves every minute of that flick.)

He could've been the Jack Black of the '80s.

His IMDB listing is huge.

"Screw that, have you got in her pants yet?" "She's not that kind of girl, Booger." "Why, does she have a penis?" There can be only one Booger Presley on the mean guitar! (with a rap by little ole me, Lamar!)
Nov. 22, 2006, 9:51 a.m. CST
Now I'm curious how tasteless this thing would've been. Does Booger eat poop?
Nov. 22, 2006, 10:01 a.m. CST
Umm I don't think so.

is an 80s classic and anyone who says otherwise is a commie or a canadian or maybe both.
Nov. 22, 2006, 10:53 a.m. CST
gratuitous full frontal nudity... I forgot all about it until I caught Porkeys recently. Even back the Kim Cattrall was workin it... nice tush too... I find it peculiar that AICN is suddenly PC about movies. That youd rather not watch a Nerds remake because it pushes taboos. Dry up.

take a look at the dailies. if they aren't better than the original, give it the axe.
Nov. 22, 2006, 11:23 a.m. CST
I am NOT a fan of remakes, but I read this script at it was hillarious. I wouldn't call this a remake. More of a reinvention, and mostimportantly, it was about us -- FANBOYS, the new age nerds who grow up to be Bill Gates and Tarantino and Del Toro and Peter Jackson. It's a shame this isn't getting made, and from what I hear, it is Fox Atomic's fault, not the filmmakers. Fox Atomic sucks balls, and Peter Rice has no fing idea what is funny or how to run a studio.

That sucks... if this thing actually had a decent script, that is. Now I'll have to find it somehow.
Nov. 22, 2006, 12:39 p.m. CST
This just goes to show the sheer scale of suckness on Fox' part. In fact anything with the name 'Fox' attached to it sucks big red monkeyballs. In fact, I vote fox hunting should be reinstated in England. In fact if I met a chick that was a fox, I'd beat her over the head with a lead pipe. DAMN YOU, FOXES!! GIVE ME BACK MY NERDS!!

...is a classic now? And I suppose all those sequels were merely misunderstood masterpieces too? Buy me a fucking vowel because I want to spell bullshit.
Nov. 22, 2006, 1:09 p.m. CST
It's exposing yourself to blind person. Classic. The sequels weren't great, but the original was classic.
Nov. 22, 2006, 1:51 p.m. CST
I was actually very upset when I heard that they were remaking this and that Adam Goldberg was behind it. That's the part that really upset me, that this no talent, unfunny, Woody Allen wannabe hack was going to rape one of my favorite comedies. Having read this news some time ago, I cannot express how elated I am.
Nov. 22, 2006, 1:56 p.m. CST
...if a 1984 movie is a 'classic'. And I was really looking forward to Michael Richards as Lamar Latrell.
Nov. 22, 2006, 2:34 p.m. CST
If only they would shut THAT needless remake down. I could almost accept that "Nerds" could be dressed down for another generation...but for fuck's sake, why do they need to fuck with the babysitter?
Nov. 22, 2006, 2:57 p.m. CST
Definitely one of the more memorable lines of the 80's...maybe in movie history. "May the force be with you"... "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn"... "We've got bush!" Ya, it's at least in the top 10.
Nov. 22, 2006, 3:01 p.m. CST
robster craws... priceless.
Nov. 22, 2006, 3:23 p.m. CST
Everyone knows it, and most of those people love it. Thus, classic.
Nov. 22, 2006, 3:48 p.m. CST
There is lots and lots of funny shit in Revenge of the Nerds. And a remake ends up being a lesser film 99% of the time. Not exactly good odds.
Nov. 22, 2006, 3:51 p.m. CST
I think movies from the mid-80s are definitely eligible to be called "classics" at this point. They're over 20 years old. I consider the following movies classics: BACK TO THE FUTURE, TRADING PLACES, FLETCH, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, BEVERLY HILLS COP, THE TERMINATOR, GHOSTBUSTERS. Of course, ther term "classic" should refer to not only the age of a film, but it's quality. I sure as hell wouldn't call REVENGE OF THE NERDS a classic.
Nov. 22, 2006, 3:51 p.m. CST
A sequel would make more sense. Given that what being a nerd means has changed since the original (the internet, otaku, furries, hackers, LARPers, etc.) the source material for "teh funnay" has expanded. Of course, one would have to trust the writers and producers to know about that stuff and be able to riff on it effectively. I fear we'd end up with a "Saving Silverman" type movie where nerddom is defined by being a fan of... Neil Diamond? WTF?
Nov. 22, 2006, 5:05 p.m. CST
"thefutureoffilm" The Adam Goldberg your thinking about is not the one that is involved. It's Adam F. Goldburg. But Adam Goldburg was the shit in The Hebrew Hammer. Second, ROTN's is a classic. The sequels sucked, except maybe part 2 (what if D-O-G really spelled cat.)
Nov. 22, 2006, 5:41 p.m. CST
I was just whining about a movie being a classic when I saw it in the theater. Yes, I paid money to see it.
Nov. 22, 2006, 9:07 p.m. CST
...say that THERE IS A GOD! Didn't the nerd win and take over the world anyway? Are nerds even oppressed anymore?
Nov. 22, 2006, 9:30 p.m. CST
I'd like to see more remakes get the boot.
Nov. 22, 2006, 10:04 p.m. CST
How do you get anything done if you have to spend all of your time making new logins to spam the forums with links to your film that nobody likes? If it had merit, someone would have called you by now.
Nov. 22, 2006, 11:43 p.m. CST
now if only every other [;anned remake could go the same way. if weird science is ever re-made I shall shit my boxers where I sit. Leave the 80's alone you bastards!
Nov. 23, 2006, 7:10 a.m. CST
A remake bites the dust? Accident or an actual proof of the existence of higher powers?

Though millions of fans are disappointed by the unfortunate difficulties in launching a Revenge of the Nerds remake, rest assured that we are actively pursuing a Mannequin re-imagining.
Nov. 23, 2006, 10:50 a.m. CST
stop it with the old news alredy. This was in Dark Horizons days ago! And that Spidey3 one-sheet was in superherohype the day before yesterday
Nov. 23, 2006, 3:28 p.m. CST
what greenlit FREDDY GOT FINGERED? How much worse could the new NERDS film be, or have been? And here's hoping that that MANNEQUIN remake a few posts up is a joke. I have fond memories of the original. If nothing else, it's what made me fall for Kim Cattrall. Don't judge me.
