Director of Revenge of the Nerds and Gotcha!
Revenge of the Nerds (1984) -- Slightly above average among the teen movies of the time, I guess because it was one of the first (I can think of) where the nerds were the heroes. Sets the standard for nerds for decades to come. The ending new wave rap song is pretty cool. (Joe Roth directs the sequel, Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise.)
