Fanboys is a fun Star Wars fanatic comedy that chronicles the journey of a group of Star Wars nerds that are on a mission to see the new Star Wars movie before it gets released and their friend dies from cancer. The lengths these guys will go to is hysterical, committing crimes, getting into battles, lying, cheating and stealing; it’s a no holds bar movie, nerd style. Fanboys more than anything spotlights the rise nerds and geeks in pop culture, demonstrating the huge cultural impact of sci-fi and fantasy based stories, but more so the acceptance of imagination and technology. This movie is pretty simple and its execution, nothing is too abstract; in fact it's a straight shot with plenty of laughs and ridiculous outbursts. A fighting scene between the main Star Wars fans and a group of Trekkies in Captain Kirk's hometown is pretty memorable and I think there is even a nod to The Big Lebowski when a Star Wars fan bites off the imitation Spock’s ear and spits it in the air, all of which is in slow motion. Fanboys needs just one thing from the viewer- you need to have at least seen the first Star Wars to understand a little bit of what's going on and then you are set for a fun movie with a silly but touching plot.
