Editorial Reviews

Get ready for the comedy adventure that's "smart, funny, and tailor-made for the inner-Jedi in all of us" (Pete Hammond, Hollywood.com). In 1998, four childhood buddies with a shared love of all things Star Wars reunite for one final, hilarious odyssey. Their insane plan: a cross-country road trip to storm George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch and steal a copy of Episode I before it's released. With the police, a crew of angry Trekkies, and a crazy pimp hot on their trail, what could possibly go wrong? Featuring Dan Fogler (Balls of Fury), Jay Baruchel (Tropic Thunder), and Kristen Bell (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), plus a slew of hysterical surprise cameos, "the Force IS strong with this one!" (Brian Gallagher, MovieWeb)

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Movie. Great Story. April 22, 2009
Format:DVD
Admitting my bias, I am a big Star Wars fan and had been anxiously waiting the movie release since seeing a preview at ComicCon. The movie did not disappoint and had the family (boys at least) laughing harder than anything else I can remember. Some of the jokes are mature and maybe too vulgar for some. The number of inside references and "for fans only" jokes makes it fun. The guest appearances by Star Wars legends also adds to the experience. The best part is the humor is in support of a story beyond a throw away comedy with a compelling conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh at this, you will February 11, 2011
Format:DVD
First and foremost, this film features and outstanding young cast: Sam Huntingon (Not Another Teen Movie), Chris Marquette (hilarious in The Girl Next Door), Jay Baruchel (funny and awkward as ever), Kristen Bell (gorgeous and talented as always), and Seth Rogan (whose mannerisms always seem to be funny). Who stole the show, however, was relatively obscure Dan Fogler. Part Booger from Revenge of the Nerds, part Jack Black without the tendency to irritate, Fogler absolutely stole every scene into which his hairy, obese body waddled (Do a Google picture search for "awesome none left" and you get a good idea of what he looks like).

Beyond the superbly blended cast is a heart-warming yet laugh out loud story of a group of twenty-something friends who have wanted one thing for years: to break into George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch and steal a copy of Phantom Menace before its release. Anyone in the sci-fi community can tell you that this release was HIGHLY anticipated, and executing this plan would have been akin to an Arthurian knight finding the Holy Grail. Watching the crew band together and embark on this perilous mission reminds me of, oh, I don't know, the crew from Star Wars - minus the midget they should have had for Yoda - perhaps? Although, it's a bit of a stretch to paint Kristen Bell as an obsessive Star Wars, sci-fi fan who dresses up as Leia and waits in line for the premiere of Phantom Menace; there can only be a handful of girls like that in the world.

For Star Wars and Star Trek fans (i.e. Trekkies or Trekkers, choose one), this movie is saturated with references, superb cameos, trivia, and enough "insider" moments to impress the true fanboys.

4.0 out of 5 stars "This Is Our Death Star!" July 8, 2011
Format:DVD
Synopsis: Who in their right minds would concoct an insane plan like to drive across country to the estate of the great George Lucas, sneak in and spirit away with a copy of his soon to be released film Star Wars: Episode 1? It sounds like an idea that maybe a group of eight year olds would come doesn't it. That is if they could drive. Unfortunately this hair-brained plan is devised by 5 lifelong sci-fi, comic book fans who happened to be old enough to drive and stupid enough to attempt to do it. As the road unfolds before them, along with an endless series of insane encounters and unpredictable mishaps they experience along the way, their road trip begins to evolve into an epic quest for redemption and an unforgettable rite of passage that none will ever forget.

Critique: I didn't expect much from this film. I wasn't looking forward to wasting my time watching another dime a dozen crazy teenage road trip, low brow humor film. Well..., I was wrong. `Fanboy' is a well thought out, clever, immensely funny film is not only enjoyable on the initial viewing but will stand up well to the repeatability factor. I loved the cast, specially Kristen Bell (yes that's right, Kristen Bell) and Dan Fogler. Plenty of great cameos too! It certainly isn't Shakespeare but it sure is good for a lot of laughs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A film any Star Wars fanboy will love February 20, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
As a moderately big Star Wars fan, I loved this film. The main characters are hysterical in their own rights due to both the character designs and the performances of the individual actors/actresses (actress is very important). Homages to Star Wars are peppered throughout the entire movie, some discretely and others not at all. However, I must have watched this movie 20+ times and I still find little things that I had never previously noticed each and every time I watch it. Finally, and most importantly, even if the 95% of this movie was terrible (which is not the case), the remaining 5% contains Kristen Bell in a Slave Leia costume which alone is well worth the price of the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fanboys December 30, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Seth Rogen...God he is so funny. I saw a excerpt of this movie on youtube...(the fight scene at the statue of Captain Kirk) and just watching that made it worth while. I cannot believe I've missed out on this for almost 4 years. One of Seth's best movies...it just sucks you don't see more of him:)

3.0 out of 5 stars Nerdy October 27, 2013
By JWolf
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I like this movie, but I'm also a Star Wars person as well as a fan of a few other nerdy films. I think a lot of people will appreciate the homage paid to several classic sci fi titles as well as good comedy. I can't really say it's a great movie, but it is funny and worth watching a few times.

Format:DVD
FANBOYS (2009) is one of those love-it-when-you-see-it films that will then either become a perennial favorite or will die in your memory. The latter happened to me. I could have sworn I reviewed this when it was new. In any case, I enjoyed it very much and wish I had the money to get a used DVD just for kicks.

Well, so much has been published here I can only find myself free from my stiffer, more formalistic reviews. Therefore I can indulge myself. This film, set, I think, in 1998 or early 1999, centers around a charming and somewhat obnoxious set of fanboys (plus one fangirl). They are complete STAR WARS "geeks" and who can blame them, really.

Among the group, word leaks that one of the friends is dying of cancer. From that we jump to plans being laid to sneak this friend into Skywalker Ranch (good luck trying that now, Mickey Mouse will get you before Yoda can grab his lightsaber). With incredibly hilarious highjinks during their road trip to the Ranch, somewhat homaged in the film Paul, any STAR WARS fan will understand this completely.

A special appearance by a most unlikely super star will leave some perplexed--but I understood that immediately. I leave it for you to discover. Ultimately, then, will they succeed? Will they succumb to the young die-hard STAR TREK fans they encounter on the road? Will George Lucas allow the dying fan a sneak preview of THE PHANTOM MENACE since he'll certainly be dead by the time it is officially released?

Stay tuned!
