Goofs

When Eric approaches his old friends at the party, Windows says "god, it's been parsecs". A Parsec is a measure of distance, Not time. This is deliberate, as it was also an error made by Han Solo in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. See more »

Great Flick
8 February 2009 | by (United States) – 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.
