Trivia

When the doctor (Carrie Fisher) gives Linus the bottle of pills with directions he kisses her full on the lips. Then he says "I love you." The Doctor replies "I know." these two lines appear in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and also in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). Leia says to Han "I love you" right before he is frozen in carbonite. Han replies "I know." In Jedi, the roles are reversed, with Han saying "I love you", and Leia saying "I know", just after she shows Han her blaster when they are cornered at the "back entrance" by the Empire forces.

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.
