Seattle Post-Intelligencer - Bill White
A hilariously spry effort from an equally unpromising premise.
NPR - Bob Mondello
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.
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
Unfortunately, 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.
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
Mildly cute, mildly drooly, majorly too late spoof/homage.
Variety - Unnamed
End result feels like an uneven cross between an amateur "Project Greenlight" pic and such recent comedies as "Superbad" and "Pineapple Express," in which indie directors brought a certain edge to material that might once have felt more at home under the National Lampoon label.

Fanboys (2009)

In 1999, Star Wars fanatics take a cross-country trip to George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch so their dying friend can see a screening of The Phantom Menace before its release.
