Finding 80s late-night movies

I'm trying to identify a cheesy movie from the 1980s -- one of the sort that ran on HBO at 1:00 AM on a Friday night.

In the 1980s and early 90s, HBO, Showtime and Cinemax would run low-rent, goofy "guy-flicks" in the wee weekend hours -- stuff that would make Porky's look like Citizen Kane.
I've become a little nostalgic for these goofy comedies -- they're actually a lot of kitschy fun, if you go back and watch them now. There's one in particular I cannot identify despite a ton of Googling.
This is what I remember: The plot had to do with a couple of nerdy guys trying to get laid, possibly at spring break (gee, how novel). The movie was broken up by periodic dream sequences, as each of the males fantasized about being successful with the ladies. In one, the nerdy guy (maybe named Everett?) imagined girls lining up in a classroom, taking their shirts off, and asking him for help with their homework. In another, the fat guy was a Roman emperor, gorging himself on both food and females.
Any ideas what this movie was called?
Furthermore -- I'm guessing many of the MeFi males between the ages of 40 and 30 have fond memories of these flicks as well. Anybody have their own favorites?
