Really good and funny movie however lots of things missing
8 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fanboys isn't a terrible movie however with a 3 million dollar budget I felt cheated they couldn't at least get George Lucas to make a cameo. Honestly there really isn't a lot of star wars stuff in it either besides a museum of costumes and artifacts from other lucas films. Not even sure is they filmed at the actual ranch? Regardless, this film comes very short on some desperately needed extras. George Lucas actually being in it. I did love the scene where someone gets to kiss carrie fisher. That was an epic moment along with Shatners appearance. I think if it hadn't been for cameos from shatner, fisher, billy dee williams, and ray parks this film would probably have never made any money. It barely made it past the half million mark in earnings so for the people getting offended at bad reviews it's just facts. So I'll give fanboys 5 stars for a good effort but the writing comes up short of anything truly genius considering all the sexual humor that uuuummmm star wars films do not need to be awesome. ~ S A Storyteller
