Evidence that there should be a 15-year-old limit on the arrested development phenomenon known as "fanboy," the story follows five twenty-something Star Wars-loving buddies (token girl duties supplied by Kristen Bell) on a cross-country journey to break into George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch to get a first look at the next Star Wars movie. The road trip necessarily involves a cultural collision at a gay biker bar, a close encounter with a couple of inept Las Vegas prostitutes, and a near beat-down by an actor playing fanboy hero Harry Knowles. Little boys that play with action figures might get juiced up from cameos by the likes of Carrie Fisher and William Shatner, and the promise of a booby flash, but "Fanboys" is not an enjoyable ride for the rest of humanity.
Rated PG-13. 90 mins. (C-) (Two Stars)
