May the force be humourous...

Kyle Newman’s road-trip comedy/Lucas love letter whisks us back to a more innocent time: the summer of ’98, where four over-eager Star Wars fans plan to swipe a rough cut of The Phantom Menace from skywalker ranch.

Newman’s nerds are mostly one-note, while the cancer subplot he fought to retain against Harvey Weinstein’s wishes is a hollow MacGuffin.

But Fanboys surfs sweetly along on a wave of in-jokes, lively support turns (Seth Rogen rocks three roles) and good-natured goofiness. Decent extras, but the Force is only so-so with the HD transfer.
