A fanatical group of Star Wars devotees travel across the country on a mission to steal a print of Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace from Skywalker Ranch and become the first fans to see the film in a rowdy, sci-fi-flavored road comedy starring Sam Huntington, Chris Marquette, Dan Fogler, Jay Baruchel, and Kristen Bell. Carrie Fisher, William Shatner, and Ray Park turn up for cameos in the one comedy that truly understands the fanboy mindset. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
I can't believe how much I liked this movie!!! I thought this was going to be aweful, stupid and just completely bite. Great to see cameos by Kevin Smith and Billy Dee. I laughed A LOT. Must be my age and throw back references. It takes quite a bit to really make me laugh. It is a Goonies of 2007 as if written by Kevin Smith
The type of movie that can only be appreciated by people who've ever had an absurd obsession with fictional entertainment. Although I am not a crazed fan of Star Wars, I can appreciate the story, sprinkled with a little bit of actual human emotion tied to the purpose of the characters' journey in the film. I would recommend watching the original Star Wars Trilogy and following it up with Fanboys for a good dose of a healthy laugh.
