A few laughs here and there and a couple of moments of emotionally stunted sweetness add up to a Fanboys that only a fanboy would love.

It's not nearly nerdy enough.

Fanboys is an amiable but disjointed movie that identifies too closely with its heroes. Poking a little more fun at them would have been a great idea.

While Fanboys has moments of success, it is mostly a middling road picture that doesn't do a lot more than any average, forgettable entry into the tired genre.

It is a shame that a movie about the people who are most passionate about edgy, imaginative stories is itself slipshod and formulaic.

Much as Robert Zemeckis toyed with Beatlemania in I Wanna Hold Your Hand a generation ago, the wobbly new comedy Fanboys, set in 1998, salutes Yoda worship and the fine line between ardor and breaking and entering.

Those unsure of what a scruffy nerfherder is or what the planet Kashyyyk represents in the broader Star Wars universe will probably want to sit this one out.

There are plenty of no-budget movies worthy of grassroots movements. 'Fanboys,' which comes with a built-in fan base only by virtue of its connection to a universe George Lucas created, isn't one of them.

The Force isn't with crude story of fandom and friendship.

This long-delayed comedy may pique the interest of Star Wars fans, but the film's slapdash humour and broad characterisations will have most everyone else heading to another galaxy far, far away.

Nothing more than an attempt to stroke the "Star Wars" fans ... they're probably the only ones who might appreciate what is generally a weak and unfunny movie.

The tone seems as uneven as the pacing.

For people who hated the prequels or just outgrew their love for Salacious Crumb action figures and Star Wars Holiday Special references, it will probably feel like 90 minutes in the Sarlacc pit.

It was a great premise, it just unfortunately did not come together.

Star Wars fandom has been celebrated in pop culture for decades, but we're still waiting for a movie that captures it with any real level of truth.

Merely an extended high-five to those already in the Skywalker-adoring club.
