Speaking of Revenge Of The Nerds it not the most racist, sexist, misogynistic and bigoted movie made since Birth of a Nation?

Never mind the whole premise is to cast athletes as uber-villains against the benign nerds.

But they have the black guy actually chucking a spear. Their retaliation against the sorrority is to put in spy cameras everywhere and publicly humiliate them.

Dude, Louis essentially rapes Betty--and she likes it! Falls in love with him, wants to date him, etc. That's pretty messed up right there.

Of course, she'd been hanging out with Stan--and you know he was hittin' her and takin' what he wanted when he wanted--so I suppose Louis was an improvement. Still, you don't know what a sneaky nerd is gonna do if he thinks he can get away with it.

We won't even go into the intimations of child molestation, as when the young Harold goes looking for a place to live and encounters a much older woman who behaves very inappropriately toward him.

Or am I over-thinking this?
