Trivia

During the fight between our heroes and the Star Trek (1966) fans at the dedication of the Captain James T. Kirk statue, Spock's ears are ripped off. This is reminiscent of the 1976 Saturday Night Live (1975) skit titled "The Last Voyage of the Starship Enterprise" where Spock's (played by Chevy Chase) ears are removed as Spock calls out, "My ears!", as part of the dismantling of the Star Trek (1966) set and series cancellation.

Goofs

Many of the slot machines seen inside the casino (i.e. Pompeii, Mr. Cashman) were not around until several years after 1998. Also, the table at which the actors are playing "blackjack" clearly says Three Card Poker - a completely different game. See more »

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.
