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, 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
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
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
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.

When buying this flm 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 to Texas, break into Skywalker ranch and steal one copy of the film, so Linus can see it before dying. This 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 Star Wars spoofs and parodies ("Spaceballs", "Robot Chicken", "How it should have ended", etc.) as well as all the jokes about fanboys. For some reason 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 movie 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"!
