Synopsis
A fanatical group of Star Wars devotees travel across the country on a mission to steal a print of Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace from Skywalker Ranch and become the first fans to see the film in a rowdy, sci-fi-flavored road comedy starring Sam Huntington, Chris Marquette, Dan Fogler, Jay Baruchel, and Kristen Bell. Carrie Fisher, William Shatner, and Ray Park turn up for cameos in the one comedy that truly understands the fanboy mindset. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

The second half is actually not bad -- quite funny and even touching. And the final line is absolutely classic.

But to get there, you have to endure a first half that's surprisingly ineffective. The characters and writing are awfully trite. In some cases, that's on purpose (the father/son parallel with Vader/Luke for instance) but that doesn't help the references feel fresh. It's like you're watching someone's high-school film project.

They also got caught in the middle regarding geek culture. The references don't ring true, and yet are too geeky for a mainstream audience. The real problem, though, is the complacency of the first half.
