When everyone is being chased through Skywalker Ranch and jump down a garbage chute, Hutch dives in head first but when he exits he comes out feet first. This was regarded as an error but it is likely the director purposefully did this to spoof Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, in which Han jumps in head first and comes out feet first. See more »

Not Sure How Non-"Star Wars" Fans Will Like It, But I Had a Blast
A surprisingly funny movie about a group of geeks who set off on a mission to break into Skywalker Ranch and view a print of the as-yet-unreleased latest installment in the "Star Wars" saga, "The Phantom Menace."
This is a road trip comedy of the fairly standard variety, with trips to jail and Vegas, some drug use, some Internet hookups and some prostitutes thrown in for good measure. The film looks like it was made for about $20 and certainly doesn't break any new ground. But the cast of actors is game and look like they're having a ball -- there's an especially hilarious sequence that features Seth Rogen in disguise as leader of an army of rival Trekkies. I can't really imagine anyone who doesn't have a pretty thorough knowledge of "Star Wars" trivia enjoying this film, because virtually every shot and line includes some sort of reference to the George Lucas series. But since I'm a "Star Wars" fan, I thought it was a hoot.
