Well, for you fanboys out there, this could be the moment you've been waiting for. That's right, the first official Fanboys trailer has finally hit the net and, honestly, I'm more than a little underwhelmed. Dare I say The Force is not very strong with this one? Before I continue, Fanboys (in case you did not know) is a film about a bunch of Star Wars geeks who attempt to pull off what appears to be an impossible mission: Sneak into George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch and swipe a copy of Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace (before it comes out in theaters) to honor the final wish of a dying friend.
As far as cast goes, we have a bunch of "Yeah, I think I've seen that dude somewhere" type, including Sam Huntington (Superman Returns), Dan Fogler (School for Scoundrels), Chris Marquette (Just Friends) and Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars). Granted, I'm not a fanboy, have never dressed up as a Storm Trooper just for the hell of it, attended one of them fan conventions or lived my life according to Yoda's teachings. So, perhaps, this is why the trailer (which reminded me of Road Trip, except with a slew of Star Wars references) did not dazzle me. However, the part when they clash with a bunch of Star Trek fans did make me chuckle just a little bit.
What do you Fanboys think? Am I coming down a bit too hard on the flick? Do you think it has potential?
