It really bothers me to see REVENGE OF THE NERDS listed at all, let alone as high as 8th, on a list like this. Anyone viewing the film with contemporary eyes should be horrified by it.…
The capsule summary says it's "a satisfying series of fulfilled wishes, the nerds get their, you know, revenge."

It's actually watching the Nerds behaving worse than the jocks: spying on, then selling nude pictures of sorority members. And more. (2/)
Lewis, an alleged hero, rapes a woman by deception -- she only consents to sex with him because he's wearing a Darth Vader mask and she thinks it's her actual boyfriend. (3/)
And the film traffics in ugly stereotypes -- anti-gay, anti-Black, anti-Asian, you name it. I cannot IMAGINE showing RotN to my daughters and claiming it's within the bounds of acceptability. (4/4).
