If there's one thing '80s movies taught kids, it's that if you invade a girl's privacy or sneak a peak of her squishy parts while she isn't looking, it is perfectly okay if you're with your friends. Squishy parts. Remember that one. It's yours now.
So Revenge of the Nerds, for those of you who were born after most of the actors' careers had taken a nosedive, is a movie that takes place in a time in which kids were stratified. It's before jocks tried to claim being nerds to seem bangable to girls, and it's before nerds were more popular than jocks since they're pretty good looking these days, anyway. Nerds looked like your grandpa when he tries to dress up nice and jocks hated the idea of being "smart." Nobody was happy.
In the movie the outcasts known as "Nerds" take revenge on their jock bullies and actually win girls, etc. The concept was so ridiculous at the time that it was a kind of high concept when the movie came out.
Anyway, there's a scene where the nerds sneak into the dorms of some super hot girls and set up hidden cameras to see them change, which is insanely rape-y and horrible by today's standards, but is more of a "boys will be boys" thing to do when you live in an 80s movie.
This scene is one of the most surprising turns that a comedy like this ever took because you really didn't come to expect it from a movie like this. Hell, you didn't really come to expect it from any comedies until around this time in the 80s. There must have been so many outraged parents returning video tapes and yelling at dudes who didn't approve of the films they were renting <--- sh*t like this is why Kevin Smith is famous.
