Trivia

William Katt, whose scene was deleted and re-shot, but still available in the deleted scenes portion of the DVD, would have provided another tie-in to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) had it remained in the movie, as Katt auditioned for the part of Luke Skywalker. See more »

Goofs

Quite a lot of the merchandise displayed in the movie was not released in 1998. Most noticeably the Master Replica Force FX Sabers (2005) throughout the movie (held by the Darth Vader statue, used by fans in the theatre), and the 12" Taun Taun in the 2002 "Saga" collection packaging in Eric's bedroom.

Great Flick
8 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

I'm not a movie critic so I'm not going to act like one like many people do on here.

Plain and simple Fanboys was great. The movie had a strong story and was very funny. If your into star wars, comics, movies, pop culture, you will throughly enjoy this movie. Go see it.

Myself, and 4 of my friends took a road trip to Chicago to see it. I think the road trip really made the movie even better.

Its in limited release, but its worth the road trip. It was a lot of fun.

Love this flick.
