If I were a Trekkie, I would probably hate "Fanboys": in this quasi-road movie that has a group of friends invade George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch, "Star Wars" fans are depicted as lovable losers, and "Trekkies" as boring and uptight idiots. Thankfully, I'm more of a "Star Wars" guy myself, so I can forgive the film for not being popculturally correct and enjoy it for what it is as a comedy/parody/"Star Wars" tribute. And let me tell you: it is pretty, pretty funny here and there. Oh yeah, there are many gags that don't quite work, sure, but the crazy pacing of the movie won't allow your mind to linger on these. The problem is, if you saw some great "geek comedies" before, you know "Fanboys" isn't up to the highest standard of the genre. Shortly speaking, it's never as funny as, say, Kevin Smith's best films - not even when Kevin Smith himself appears here. But still - it's an enjoyable little movie with some very funny moments and some delicious cameos - I won't reveal anything more than the Smith cameo, as that would be spoiling all the fun of discovering them one by one, I guess.
As for the extras: a commentary would be welcome, but instead we get a bunch of short docs, several deleted scenes (most of them rather terrible), a trailer and "webisodes" called "Disturbances in the Force". These are mildly entertaining but don't do the movie justice.
