Fanboys laughs with Eric and the gang, not at them. It celebrates how pop culture can bring people together, and that a dream is important even if it only matters to you.

in a manner that is both thoroughly entertaining and slyly confronting, FanBoys ends up being an affectionate lampoon of its own viewers and the lives that they live through the movies that they watch.

For those who get a gag like 'Looking for love in Alderaan places?' you don't have to worry if the movie is on your level or not.

At times the structure labours, but ultimately Fanboys rises above routine Hollywood fare because it never makes fun of the people it represents.

Fanboys does have a heart buried under all that dandruff and sexual frustration.

Buoyed by infectious high spirits and self-deprecating humour, the film works in strange and perhaps unintentional ways, thanks largely to the sustained energy of the lead actors, and writers Ernest Cline and Adam F. Goldberg.

The humor is fast and furious, especially the ingrained hatred between fans of "Star Wars" and "Star Trek."

Pretty funny, as long as it focuses on geek-specific references ('Hey, it's Willow's spell book!').

Any film that turns R2-D2 into a lusty anatomical nickname can't be all bad.

t's the strong Star Wars/geek-centric nature of the film that helps it succeed.

Fanboys ambles along on a decent sprinkling of chuckles. The tide of in-jokes are funny whether you get them or not because the real humor lies in how they reflect a fraternal code.

This road movie heads in predictable directions but with unpredictable results.

February 19, 2009
Genial and potty-mouthed and dumb and sweet -- a rudely engaging road comedy with more inside Star Wars baseball than a convention hall full of Imperial Grand Moffs.

The kind of groovy, easygoing, good-hearted affair that manages to entertain despite its shortcomings. Fanboys will leave you with a smile across your face for ninety minutes.

February 6, 2009
An outrageously zany, razor sharp comedy and a must-see for Star Wars fans young and old. If you're among those Star Wars fans, then let the LAUGHTER be with you!

You'd think the weakest link in Fanboys would be that it's all in-jokes, but they're actually not so 'in' that a casual fan won't get them.

Even geeks enjoy poking fun at geeks. And they really know how.

The comic Force is with Fanboys, a hilarious and heartwarming film about the wondrous powers of movies that last a lifetime.
