To many, Revenge of the Nerds is an innocent cult classic underdog story from 1984 — but it is kind of trash. Actually it’s a lot of trash and we unpacked a lot of that garbage with film critic and podcast co-host of Unspooled Amy Nicholson!
It’s amazing how this movie contained sooooo many problematic moments including a specific moment that is wildly offensive and would totally not fly today. We talk to Nicholson about THAT scene and how this movie constantly makes bad choices. We dive deep into this one so get your pocket protectors ready because it’s going to be one problematic ride!
