Pre-TV hunk Anthony Edwards (future star of the hit TV series ER) and Robert Carradine play Gilbert and Lewis, a pair of stereotypical nerds. Along with their fellow outcasts, they form their own fraternity for un-hip students and go to war with the evil Alpha Betas.
Along with a sorority of sister outcasts (the Omega Mu’s?), they fight for their dignity and better housing against the bullying jocks and their female counterparts who dominate the school.
It all culminates with a really cool techno-pop song at the homecoming carnival.
Kudos to Edwards for his stirring speech about ending “nerd persecution.” And a special nod to Booger – the king of crudeness and belching.
