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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

Perfect for all fanboys and girls of star wars - so many references to so many things. Oh my gosh the fights between star wars fans and trekkies - it just kills me its so funny. Then you have the very real life situation of a friend battling cancer juxtaposed next to the excitement of a new star wars film that I think quite a few of us can relate to. I hope you like Seth Rogen though because he is all up in it.

I see a few reviews here giving this movie 2 stars because it's a nerd movie.

I'm giving it 5 stars BECAUSE IT'S A NERD MOVIE!!!

I'm a Star Wars geek. (I'm also a Star Trek geek, so the banter between the two fan bases in this movie was hysterical to me.)

There are so many sci-fi references in this movie that it's hard to keep up. And they are worked in seemlessly into the story.

The story itself is your basic road comedy. A bunch of friends have to take a road trip to break into George Lucas' house. (You know, because sometimes the need for that just happens! We've all been there...). It's the same kind of advanture as National Lampoon's Vacation. A bunch of stuff goes wrong and they have to overcome it to get to the destination. On in this case instead of getting help from Cousin Eddie, they get their help from William Shatner. (Oh yeah...Captain Kirk makes an appearence. It's fantastic.)

It's funny. It's sweet (the friends overcome their own internal struggles and bond). And its' nerdy.

If you are a sci-fi fan you have to see this movie. Have to.

Also it takes some pot shots at how bad The Phantom Menace was. And there is always room for that.
