Fanboys 

Eric (Sam Huntington), Hutch (Dan Fogler), Linus (Chris Marquette) and Windows (Jay Baruchel) are four friends who grew up together worshipping the George Lucas epic Star Wars. They can recall trivia about the series that only the most hardcore fans know. In fact, they’ve remained such geeks that only Eric has gotten a real job (he sells cars for his dad); the other three, now in their early 20s, spend more time reading comics than working. When one of the four gets a terminal illness, they decide to embark on the trek they planned but never pursued as teens: They pile into Hutch’s van and head to the Skywalker ranch where they intend to steal a copy of the not-yet-released Phantom Menace. The plot’s rather flimsy and the Star Wars jokes grow tiresome by the end. But a slew of cameos (featuring everyone from Clerks director Kevin Smith to Star Trek’s William Shatner), keep the film entertaining. Shaker Cinemas. HHH
