Movie Info

NERDLAND is the story of two best friends, aspiring screenwriter ELLIOT and aspiring actor JOHN, whose dreams of super-stardom have fizzled. With their 30th birthdays looming and their desperation growing, John and Elliot decide that in this 24/7, celebrity-obsessed world of over-shared navel-gazing, there are more ways to become famous -- or infamous -- then ever before. So why not become famous TODAY? NERDLAND is that day. Making up for what they lack in brains and talent with abundant, witless enthusiasm, John and Elliot troll Los Angeles on a fame-grab journey, encountering and abusing friends both new and old. Navigating their hyper-stimulating landscape of consumerism gone wild, our two consumers want desperately to be consumed -- and they will have their FAME, no matter what the cost.

Critic Reviews for Nerdland

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

The A-list actors and well known cast -- with the exception of Hannibal Buress -- can't save the jokes, the astounding sourness of which suppresses any trace of wit.

March 13, 2020 | Full Review…

This bracingly savage satire sets its sights on one of the easier targets around: the fame-lusting wannabes who will take any available short cut to claim their fifteen minutes in the spotlight.

June 18, 2016 | Full Review…

The targets are stale, the jokes are half-baked, and the gross-out bits are downright desperate.

April 26, 2016 | Full Review…

The film exudes a self-satisfied smugness in its unvaried focus on the worst of human behavior.

April 18, 2016 | Full Review…

Revels in the foulness of 21st-century pop culture, albeit to a degree that's ultimately both exhausting and redundant.

Top Critic

There is no congruence to the narrative whatsoever, leaving the film feeling like a cobbled-together series of 15-minute Adult Swim shorts rather than an actual movie.
