Fox has announced that they will release Revenge of the Nerds: Special Edition on March 6th, 2007. It will be presented in 1:85:1 anamorphic widescreen and contain Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo tracks. Special Features... *Audio Commentary with director Jeff Kanew and actors Robert Caradine, Timothy Busfield and Curtis Armstrong *Six deleted scenes *"I'm a Nerd and I'm Pretty Proud of It" featurette *Rarely-seen "Revenge of the Nerds" TV Pilot *Original Theatrical Trailer Also, Fox will be releasing a Revenge of the Nerds 4-Pack Gift Set, which contains the new Special Edition as well as the three sequels. (to my knowledge, this is the first time Revenge of the Nerds 3 & 4 will be available on DVD) This info is from DavisDVD I'm a big fan of the original Revenge of the Nerds, so I'll be getting the SE for sure. (a double-dip for me, as I have the Nerds 1 & 2 double feature DVD) I've never seen Nerds 3 or 4...but I've heard they're not very good. I generally avoid made-for-tv movies...especially ones that act as sequels to theatrically released films. I'm probably not going to bother getting the gift set, as I have little desire to see 3 or 4. For those who have seen them, are they any good? Good enough to recommend?

This is cool news! My friend just gave me his 'Double Feature' containing the first 2 films. Having watched them for the first time in 15 years, I literally forgot how great they were. That being said, I'll gladly upgrade with the gift set. The 2 made-for-TV sequels were sub-par at best, but I'd still like to have them in order to complete the series. Can't wait to get this!

Awesome news. The first two are must-haves and I actually kind of like 3 as well.

There was another pilot? I though RotNIII was supposed to be that.

I love the first two and will buy the set if the second one gets an improved transfer. They'll actually both need noticeably better transfers for me to upgrade from the original two-pack. If they put back the one second cut in the original, I'll buy it even if it looks worse. Posted Image

Yeah, I'm getting the 4-pack. Parts 2 and 3 weren't too bad, plus it's only $10 more. OCD, completist, both?

I may just have to get all 4 as well, even though I only liked the first! And wasn't 3 or 4 partially in 3-D? Now will the removed scene (where Anthony Edwards carried the real estate sign with a live phone number) be reinstated?

That's one of the key selling points, strangely. If that little blip is still cut, I'll probably be fine with my double feature disc.

Surprised Fox greenlighted the title though. I could see certain groups being offended by it.

Seriously, Anthony Edwards needs to grow the F-up. I can't believe he is still trying to distance himself from this movie. Posted Image
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

I remember seeing 3 on TV one time, but I don't think I ever saw part 4. Still, the new SE sounds great, so I'll probably upgrade to the box set.
