This is a very funny movie. It probably helps to be a fan of Star Wars, Star Trek and/or fantasy sci-fi flicks in general because references and special guest appearances abound. You will definitely identify with these characters if you've ever been a big movie fan or known anyone even slightly obsessed with the movies.

The film itself is low budget and looks it, but it gets full marks for creativity, humour and heart. It's a real shame that it lost money at the box office, but you can do your part to help by buying the DVD. :-)

Star Wars fans alike will LOVE this movie...(and perhaps some good natured Trekkies as well) One of my favourite movies

In 1999, a group of avid Star Wars fans/best friends set out on a road trip to Skywalker Ranch to steal a print of ‘Star Wars, Episode I: The Phantom Menace’, for a friend dying of cancer who won’t live long enough to see the much-anticipated film’s theatrical debut.

I’m admittedly a long-time Star Wars fanboy myself so I had been interested in Fanboys for a long time. The opportunities seemed endless to poke fun at all of us rabid Star Wars junkies, but when I finally got to see the film (after many delays), I was pretty disappointed.

The jokes all fall flat and for the most part just come off as forced and quite frankly lame. Sure there are some occasionally funny moments, but the film offers up nothing new and instead opts to just retelling the same old tired jokes that we’ve already heard many times before. There are numerous cameos, including appearances by Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Seth Rogen, Danny Trejo, William Shatner, Ray Park, Danny McBride, Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes, but even they seemed forced and predictable.

It’s the ultimate irony that a film about hardcore fans eagerly anticipating a film that in the end disappointed a large number of moviegoers should befall the same fate as the same film it parodies.

With a pretty lame script, a mostly unfunny and uninspired cast, poor overall video & audio quality, and very few laughs, I can only recommend Fanboys to... well the fans of Fanboys. For everyone else, it’s a rental at best.

For what seemed like years, we waited...and waited...and waited...for what seemed like it could be the funniest movie ever made. Details trickled out. The trailer came long before the movie. And then when the movie itself finally arrived, the terribly familiar thud of disappointment sank in.

There are so many movies that do what Fanboys does, but so much better. Free Enterprise is a good example. Paul is another. It's unfortunate that with a decent cast and great spoof material, they could not do better. At least the movie studio didn't excise the cancer storyline as they wanted to, but what disappointed me was that the movie didn't live up to the hype -- cancer or no cancer, it's weak.

Funny bits: I liked the Rush references, but they were done better in I Love You Man. I liked the Shatner cameo, but I liked it better in Free Enterprise. I liked Billy Dee Williams as "Judge Reinhold", but come on...that Reinhold joke has been used twice before, on Arrested Development and Clerks! I liked the Seth Rogen cameo(s), especially as the hapless Star Wars fan who thinks he'll be the coolest guy ever by getting a full back tattoo of Jar Jar Binks. That was funny. The best cameo was Ethan Suplee as Harry Knowles.

Your story: It is 1998. Linus has terminal cancer. He will not live long enough to see Episode I: The Phantom Menace, which he and his three friends have dreamed about since childhood. The plan: Break into Skywalker Ranch, and steal it. Brilliant setup.

This sets into motion your typical road trip movie. Sidetracks into the desert, biker bars, being forced to strip, peyote...I've seen this all before. Beavis and Butthead and Detroit Rock City anyone? Take your favourite road trip movie and superimpose it over Fanboys.
