Well, a bit of good news to kick off this review: Revenge of the Nerds IV is better than Revenge of the Nerds III. There's more laughs to be found, the cast is quite a bit better, and the storyline at least tries to move away from the same old plot that had been done time and time again. That was the good news - the bad news is that I rated part three 0/10 and found that this entry in the series wasn't a whole lot better.

The plot for this one focuses on Booger (Curtis Armstrong) and his soon-to-be wife Jeanie (Corinne Bohrer). As it turns out, Jeanie has been hiding Booger from her snobby, blue blood parents throughout their relationship and decides to introduce him just two days before the wedding. As you can imagine, they're none too happy with their little girl marrying an obnoxious nerd, so it's up to Lewis (Robert Carradine) and most of the original gang to show them the error of their ways. Making the situation difficult is Jeanie's brother-in-law Chip (Stephen Davies), a man who is set to inherit the family's considerable wealth... but only if he can break up the wedding.

So yes, as I mentioned, this one is a little better than the previous pile of shit, but that's not exactly saying a whole lot; after all, getting kicked in the balls would be better than watching that movie again, and trust me when I say that physical pain is not something that I get enjoyment out of. The highlight of this film was seeing most of the original cast together for one final hurrah, and even though some of them were only there for a minute or two, it was still a "geek out" moment for this humble reviewer. Most of these characters have at least one good line to deliver for the camera, reminding us at home why we fell in love with them to begin with.

Now, moving on the negative side of things, this was a made-for-television production and it certainly shows. The humor was toned down and cleaned up considerably so that it could air on prime time Fox (remember those scratch and sniff cards?), and the result was a lot of jokes that simply weren't funny. Watching Booger pick his nose time and time again simply isn't funny, nor was watching the gang break into random song-and-dance routines at the slightest provocation. There's some good material to be witnessed throughout the running time, don't get me wrong: but sadly, there's many more misses than there are hits when it comes to the laughs.

It's not a complete waste of time and I'm not pissed off about having sat through it (as I was with the previous entry), but it's still nothing to go out of your way to find. Watch the original movie, then watch part two if you absolutely need a little more nerd goodness, but just pretend that the latter two films were never made. 2/10.
