From Controversial To Canceled: Movies That Would Face Backlash In Today’s Social Climate
Revenge Of The Nerds (1984)
Revenge Of The Nerds saw success as a racy comedy, but the nerdy characters that audiences sympathized with at the time are now regarded as villainous in their own right.
Not only do these characters invade the most intimate privacy of their female classmates, but one character convinces one of them to hook up with him while pretending to be her boyfriend. This is portrayed as a raucous prank in the movie, but it’s a serious criminal act in real life.
