These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Revenge of the Nerds
Character Rerailment: In the first movie Booger calls the Mu's "pigs" but comes to love them, then in the second movie he only hits on the conventionally attractive girls. And in the third and fourth movie he's back to Ugly Cute Mu's.
The use of Queen's "We Are The Champions" at the end of the first movie, arguably the most effective use of the song in any media.
The "No on 15" song in the second movie.
Designated Hero: The Tri-Lambs' revenge on Betty Childs is hardly the actions of the nice guys characters they are supposed to be. Granted she was a Grade A bitch but putting secret camera's in her bedroom, selling naked photos of her taken without her knowledge or permission to the ENTIRE SCHOOL and tricking her into having sex by making her think she's having sex with her boyfriend - which actually fits the legal definition of Rape by Deception - is, to say the least, grossly Disproportionate Retribution and would easily get someone registered as a serious sex offender in real life.
Life Imitates Art: While the film series as a whole still has a devoted following; younger, casual movie fans may see the premise as outdated, now that Bill Gates and Paul Allen masterminded the true "Revenge Of The Nerds" in real life. Nerd/geek culture is far more mainstream among men and women today than in the 1980's and early 1990's.
Dan Connor was a lot less lovable as a college coach.
Lewis settled down and had a daughter named Lizzie.
Unfortunate Implications: There are only two types of people. Nerds, and jocks. Jocks are relentlessly cruel bullies, and nerds are their prey. In other words... If you are not a nerd, you are a SOCIOPATH.
Values Dissonance: Putting cameras in womens bedrooms to spy on them naked, taking photos of someones breasts and selling them in a carnival and tricking someone into sex by pretending to be their boyfriend would definitely not be considered a justifiable response to bitchy behavior these days but in 1984 we were expected to cheer out "heroes" on for this.
One Robot Chicken sketch actually points out how the kind of behavior the nerds engage in would've gotten them all put in jail for life even back then.
There's also the fact that they have a minor involved in all of this: Harold, the child prodigy.
Speaking of which, while they are looking for places to rent, Harold comes to a middle-aged landlady's house who answers the door in a sexy nightie and hits on Harold. He is creeped out by it and leaves, but the scene is played for laughs. These days, people are much more sensitive to that sort of thing.
