“Nerds”. That’s the sort of response you get from people if they see your good grades or you’re seen hanging out with socially reclusive people, debating about nerd stuff like who’s the better Marvel/DC superhero, which company makes the better phones – Apple or Samsung etc. It’s no secret that being a nerd, we have a hard time being a part of large social groups and hence hang out with only those people who are like you: either they get good grades or they share similar interests with you. So while we see the popular kids in high school attending parties, dating etc, we take comfort in doing things that in our world is considered normal like playing video games, debate with friends about cool sci-fi movies/concepts, read a hell of comic books etc.
Anyway, if you’re a cinephile, then you should definitely check out these movies as you may see yourself reflected in these films and can totally relate with the characters and the nerdy situations they might be in. Here is the list of top geek movies ever. You can watch some of these best nerd movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
12. The 40 Year-Old Virgin (2005)
Imagine a 40 year-old adult who still is a virgin! That’s what this film is all about where Steve Carrell plays Andy, a worker in an electronics store who still is a virgin. After his friends/co-workers find out about this, they vow to help Andy lose his virginity. This movie is made for Steve Carrell who does an amazing job portraying a man whose innocence and naivety is displayed when faced with the prospects of talking to women, dating or intimacy. Credits must also go to Judd Apatow (who makes his directorial debut with this film) and the ensemble cast for the jokes which are so hilarious like that waxing scene as seen above in the picture which will keep you in splits of laughter and how Andy mistakes a condom for a balloon and starts blowing all of them. Yes, it is a sex comedy but also a sweet romantic movie as we see how Andy goes from being a full-on nerd to being a man capable of being in a relationship. Watching this will definitely bring a smile on your face.
