Movie dweebs are distinct from both movie geeks and movie nerds. Dweebs are neither smart, like nerds, nor do they have specialized knowledge or obsessions, like computers or comic-books. They’re just dorks. Hopeless fucking dorks. They’re never the leading man; the occasionally play the best friend role. And while they occasionally lose their virginity in comedic subplots, they always begin a movie as a virgin.

Here are the five greatest dweebs of cinema.

5. McLovin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Superbad


4. Ducky, Jon Cryer — Pretty in Pink


3. Kenny, Seth Green, Can’t Hardly Wait


2. The Geek, Anthony Michael Hall — Sixteen Candles


1. Charles De Mar, Curtis Armstrong — Better off Dead
