Nerd fraternity wants to throw a party before they graduate college. Jocks dislike nerds. Titties. There, I've successfully described Assault of the Party Nerds in its entirety.
Writer / director / star Richard Gabai runs in the same low budget circles as Fred Olen Ray and Jim Wynorski, and to be fair, Assault of the Party Nerds was shot in 5 days for about $40,000. So by those standards, it's fairly impressive. But for a viewer just wanting a simple T&A comedy, the film leaves much to be desired. At 45 minutes it might have been worth it. Expanded to full length though and you end with with scenes where the main characters just sit on a couch and watch TV for five straight minutes.
The songs in the film (performed by Gabai's band) are actually the highlight, aside from the breasts that is. However the incidental score (ALSO performed by Gabai) is wretched. Often it seems to just be some variation of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, which is just about the last thing you expect or want to hear in a college T&A comedy.
And the title... Party Nerds would have been fine, but who threw that "Assault of the..." on there and why? It makes it sound like party nerds are fed up and start wrecking havoc on campus, and that's simply not the case here.
I felt a little bad for panning this thing after watching the DVD extras, where the primary cast along with Gabai reflect on the joys of shooting the film (and others). But, as much fun as it sounds like they had making it, that level of fun just doesn't translate over to the viewer.
Some of the cast (including Gabai and Michelle Bauer) appears in Bikini Drive-In, a similar flick I reviewed recently that is actually pretty good. Check that one out instead.
