Fanboys is cleverly directed. Where many road trip movies are based around sex, drugs and gross-out moments, Fanboys does something a little different. Yes, it dabbles with those factors, however at it's core is a strong theme, unsurprisingly centred around Star Wars (and some Trek action too). This creates an extra layer to the film and is enhanced by likeable stars and less stereotypes than usual (although it is still far from free of such clichés). A shameless marketing plug notes that Seth Rogen stars and he does, in a few scenes, one funny character, one not so. Fanboys is not hilarious, it offers a few chuckles but it's real entertainment lies in the nods to the biggest space opera of out time and the credible performances from it's relatively inexperienced cast.

The extras are more miss than hit though, A few thankfully deleted scenes, a trailer and a handful of short documentaries with the actors and director as talking heads. Not much real entertainment to be had from the special features, however better than nothing at all.

When buying this film I assumed too much and as result I was as cruelly disappointed as Darth Vader when Luke, Leia & Co escaped from the Cloud City. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

This is the story of a group of friends, Eric (Sam Huntington), Hutch (Dan Fogler), Linus (Chris Marquette), Windows (Jay Baruchel) and Zoe (Kristen Bell), who are obsessive Star Wars fans (well, Zoe is maybe just a little bit more reasonable than the boys). They are very excited that a new Star Wars movie (The Phantom Menace) will open in six months - but then they learn that Linus has terminal stage cancer and there is no way he will live that long. So they immediately decide to go on a quest - drive through all the country to Texas, break into Skywalker ranch and steal one copy of the film, so Linus can see it before dying. The film describes this noble - and completely crazy - quest.

Before going further, for sake of full disclosure I must confess something. Yes, I am totally a Star Wars fanboy, quite a desperate case in fact - and proud of being one too! That being said, I actually love almost all Star Wars spoofs and parodies ("Spaceballs", "Robot Chicken", "How it should have ended", etc.) as well as all the jokes about fanboys. Even being the butt of such jokes from those who never saw the light (or at least the dark side of the Force) never bothered me - to the contrary I always was and still am the first to have a merry good laugh about it. All of this was the reason why I expected so much from this film - but my disappointment was cruel...

I started to have a bad feeling about this thing already after the first minute. Four minutes later I realised that those were not the droids I was looking for. After 10 minutes I yelled "It's a trap"!

This is one of the greatest comedy films ever made, so funny you will be crying most of the time! set during the year 1999 a bunch of starwars geeks are waiting for the release of episode 1 the phantom menace and decide to go on a road trip to see a copy of the film at the lucas home. this is great for fans and non fans alike as it really makes fun of the fact that the hype wasnt worth it. so many great jokes towards the whole franchise and to star trek too. there are many cameos from actors from both starwars and startrek, the best cameo is from Seth Rogen, really funny scene! a must watch for comedy fans alike. original and well thought up jokes.

Literally one of my favourite ever films. It needs to get on TV to gather a cult following. None of my friends had heard of it but it's just so funny. Sheer entertainment for those who enjoy comedy films purely for the laugh, rather than trying to analyse them.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Fanboys is a mostly affectionate look at twenty-somethings and their enduring passion for Star Wars. Your feelings on this subject will likely form a large part of whether you enjoy the movie or not, as it is quite juvenile and will appeal much, much more to people who can identify with our heroes than those who can't or would rather not.

Set in 1998, a plan is hatched to cross the Un ited States to Skywalker Ranch and grab a first peek at The Phantom Menace. The reason for this is one of the crew is terminally ill, but don't worry, this downbeat story thread is not dwelled upon. Perhaps more would have come out of the movie if it had been.

Instead, we get fights with Trekkies, girl trouble, pimp trouble, gambling and hallucinatory drugs. All topped off with a quite bizarre final infiltration of Skywalker Ranch. There are a few easy laughs, but a lot of the film is just puerile nonsense. Those who hate Star Wars or science fiction generally would revel in just how pathetic the characters often come across.

It also looks incredibly cheap (although maybe that's deliberate) and some licencing of the Star Wars soundtrack would have gone a long way. There are a few good sound effects which help, but then only geeks (like me) would notice what they were in the first place.

The DVD case trumpeted Seth Rogen in three separate roles, and that was a worry as it instantly made me think it was the movie's biggest selling point. Sadly, it isn't. His performance(s) are OK but light on laughs. The rest of the cast fare little better as the script is just too lightweight. Kristen Bell as the token Star Wars lovin' girl so horribly misses the mark that it's quite funny in itself, I suppose.
