What to know

critics consensus

This undercooked, sporadically funny road movie is a sop to Star Wars fanatics, but the uninitiated will find little to enjoy. Read critic reviews

    If, like the titular characters, you are a Star Wars super nerd, definitely give Fanboys a crack, otherwise, don't bother.

    Outrageously funny, Fanboys is a brilliant satirical comedy. A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...a group of Star Wars fans awaiting the release of Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace attempt to break into Skywalker ranch in order to steal a copy of the film so that their dying friend can get an advanced screening. The cast is full of comedic talent, including Dan Fogler, Jay Baruchel, and Kristen Bell. Additionally, there are a ton of fanboy type cameos that are hilarious. All of the Star Wars comedy really works well and is rather clever, but there are also a lot of cliched nerd jokes that fall flat. Yet even with its flaws, the force is strong with this film; Fanboys is a sincere and wildly entertaining tribute to the fan community.

    interesting concept but overall the film doesn't really treat the viewer with any respect. full of unfunny setups and cameos that don't offer anything. I really thought this would be a fun film to watch but for the most part this is only barely watchable
