Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

There is a theory that every Hollywood star has a turkey or two in their closet, so today, step forward Anthony Edwards, star of the hit TV series ER. In this puerile campus comedy, Edwards is one of the nerds of the title who decide to fight back in spectacular style against the bullying jocks at school. Among the other familiar faces in the cast are Robert Carradine, Thirtysomething's Timothy Busfield and Moonlighting's Curtis Armstrong, and all would undoubtedly wince now at the dire mix of lavatorial humour and tasteless slapstick. Even more amazing is the fact that this went on to spawn three sequels.
