Descripción del producto
Wir befinden uns im Jahr 1998, der Star Wars-Hype ist wenige Wochen vor dem Kinostart von EPISODE I auf dem Höhepunkt. Gerade jetzt müssen die eingefleischten Fans Hutch, Windows und Eric erfahren, dass ihr alter Schuldfreund Linus an Krebs erkrankt ist und die Premiere des heiß ersehnten Werks vermutlich nicht mehr erleben wird. Um ihm eine letzte Freude zu bereiten, schmieden die Jungs einen waghalsigen Plan: Sie wollen in George Lucas Skywalker-Ranch einbrechen, um eine Filmkopie von EPISODE I zu klauen und dem todkranken Luis vorführen zu können. Gemeinsam mit Fangirl Zoe begeben sie sich auf eine aberwitzige Reise quer durch Amerika. Denn natürlich ist das Vorhaben schwieriger als zunächst erwartet. Unter anderem, weil die Truppe sich auf dem Weg zu Mr. Lucas mit übel gelaunten Star Trek-Freunden, durchgeknallten Bikern und anderen Hindernissen herumschlagen muss ...

Realizada tras la segunda trilogía que ideó George Lucas, el film pasó sin pena ni gloria por las carteleras de medio planeta —aquí se editó directamente en DVD en 2014—. Parece que todo el mundo ama Star Wars, pero nadie quiere ver cómo les retratan. Creo que la película llegó en el momento equivocado, de hacerlo ahora el resultado, y sobre todo el eco, habría sido otro completamente diferente. No obstante, es toda una curiosidad que sirve de perfecto complemento a la fiebre que está "despertando" la película de J.J. Abrams, y que sólo valorarán los fans de la mítica saga, que son muchos.
Un periplo en el que por supuesto los cuatro protagonistas se encontrarán a sí mismos, unos más que otros. El destino, el rancho de Lucas en el que introducirse para robar una copia de tan ansiada película.Leer más ›
La edición americana sí que los lleva pero "creo" que no es 'multizona' así que en un reproductor zona europea no se podría reproducir.
Digo 'creo' porque no puedo confirmarlo al 100%.

Beyond the superbly blended cast is a heart-warming yet laugh out loud story of a group of twenty-something friends who have wanted one thing for years: to break into George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch and steal a copy of Phantom Menace before its release. Anyone in the sci-fi community can tell you that this release was HIGHLY anticipated, and executing this plan would have been akin to an Arthurian knight finding the Holy Grail. Watching the crew band together and embark on this perilous mission reminds me of, oh, I don't know, the crew from Star Wars - minus the midget they should have had for Yoda - perhaps? Although, it's a bit of a stretch to paint Kristen Bell as an obsessive Star Wars, sci-fi fan who dresses up as Leia and waits in line for the premiere of Phantom Menace; there can only be a handful of girls like that in the world.
For Star Wars and Star Trek fans (i.e. Trekkies or Trekkers, choose one), this movie is saturated with references, superb cameos, trivia, and enough "insider" moments to impress the true fanboys. If you waited in line to see the Phantom Menace and you haven't seen this, you're doing yourself a big disservice (they debate the inherently incestuous relationship between Luke and Leia). If you're just a random sci-fi fan and you haven't seen this, I highly recommend it. Even average movie fans should laugh enough to make this enjoyable.
Critique: I didn't expect much from this film. I wasn't looking forward to wasting my time watching another dime a dozen crazy teenage road trip, low brow humor film. Well..., I was wrong. `Fanboy' is a well thought out, clever, immensely funny film is not only enjoyable on the initial viewing but will stand up well to the repeatability factor. I loved the cast, specially Kristen Bell (yes that's right, Kristen Bell) and Dan Fogler. Plenty of great cameos too! It certainly isn't Shakespeare but it sure is good for a lot of laughs.
As the motley crew of rebels makes its way on the open road, naturally, they have a series of mishaps and misadventures. (*Mild Spoilers*) Their distaste for Trekkies leads them to a confrontation at a Captain Kirk statue dedication in Iowa. Soon after, they accidentally stumble into the wrong biker bar, have a strange experience with some marijuana-laced guacamole, Windows finally meets his internet dreamgirl, and an encounter with Harry Knowles of "Ain't It Cool News" sends them to Vegas for a secret meeting with a Skywalker Ranch insider, but not before they land themselves in jail and have to get bailed out by the comic shop hottie with a crush on one of the guys. Of course, it all leads up to one crazy infiltration attempt on Skywalker Ranch and a very touching finale.
So, that's the story of "Fanboys", quite simply, a film made for lovers of all-things Star Wars. Trekkies, beware; while this film may have some moments you'd enjoy, it definitely mocks the Trek. If you don't have a good sense of humor or acknowledge the fact that Star Wars is superior, you may just want to pick up a copy of "Free Enterprise" instead. Great film, but it's the Trek version of "Fanboys". "Free Enterprise" is more original and intellectual, and I love it because it goes beyond just Trek, but I gotta say, as a diehard, lifelong Star Wars fanatic, it made me anxious for something like "Fanboys" to come along.
Of course, "Fanboys" isn't perfect. The road-trip mission plot is anything but new, and the weak spots are some of those aforementioned misadventures. Two in particular come to mind. The gay biker bar bit seemed uninspired, though I liked the parallel with the Mos Eisley Cantina, and all the stuff right after that involving "The Chief" seemed rushed and awkward (don't get me wrong, who doesn't love Danny Trejo?). In general, there were times of missed opportunities to make things just a bit funnier. On the upside though, the film is still wholly enjoyable thanks to all the clever things that are included, mostly being Star Wars references, terrific cameos, and the humor of having a pop-culture obsession, thankfully treated here with total respect; something else that makes this a great film. "Fanboys" also has a great cast of rising stars, with Chris Marquette of "Just Friends" and "Race to Witch Mountain" as Linus, Sam Huntington of "Not Another Teen Movie" and "Superman Returns" as Eric, Dan Fogler from "Balls of Fury" as Hutch, Jay Baruchel of "Tropic Thunder" as Windows, Seth Rogan in multiple and hilarious roles, and the gorgeously stunning as always Kristen Bell as Zoe, the feisty comic shop princess. And, yes, girls like that do exist. There isn't one at my local comic shop, but I've seen them working the shop booths at Wizard World Texas(R.I.P.). I'll always remember a particularly cute one I saw the past two years from a comic shop in Plano. Though, I don't buy the filmmakers' implication that girls like that go unnoticed by the geeks around them because their interests make them "one of the guys". Nah, those girls are usually dating one of the comic shop employees, that's the problem, but I digress...
Yes, as I mentioned, one of the things that makes "Fanboys" great is that it treats the fans with respect (of course, that's what some critics seem to have had a problem with). It even cleverly handles the whole controversy of Episode 1 being... not good. Which is not my own opinion, just a seemingly popular one. In addition, the plot point of Linus's terminal condition adds a great depth to the whole thing that was nearly lost. Apparently, executive producer Harvey Weinstein wanted that left on the cutting room floor. Thank the Force that didn't happen. Fascinating that Director Kyle Newman seems to have gotten a taste of the very Dark Side George Lucas himself grew disgusted of having to deal with in Hollywood. And, before I forget to mention it, another very clever aspect of the film are the parallels with the Star Wars saga and its characters. It's not simple or overly in your face, thank goodness, as the characters even trade roles sometimes in terms of the parallels. Though, there's no question who Princess Leia is, and it's a shame she wears the gold bikini so briefly...
The DVD of "Fanboys" (currently, unfortunately, frustratingly, inexplicably not available on Blu in the U.S. at the time of this review) presents the film in widescreen with a PG-13 rating. It's nice to see a modern, 20-something roadtrip movie with a PG-13 rating, and I'm especially glad since Star Wars appeals to a wide age-range. Though, in all honesty, the PG-13 rating is misused these days. The crude humor (at least some of which I hear was producer-demanded in this case, though it's thankfully not excessive) is not something I'd call appropriate for 13 year-olds, ha. If memory serves, the PG-13 rating was created to deal more with violence than sexual and drug references, but now it seems to allow a very inappropriate amount of said material under its mantle. For such content, PG-15 or 16 would make more sense. But, hey, I don't really care that much, as I'm not a teen nor a parent. I just find it an interestingly disturbing thing what is officially considered acceptable for 13 year-olds these days. I prefer to avoid the whole issue and get "unrated" versions myself when available, ha. That way, it doesn't matter what your age is. Anyway, the DVD serves up a nice little collection of extras. We get deleted scenes (including the cut William Katt cameo; I wonder why they reshot that), a very entertaining and enlightening cast and crew commentary, a handful of behind the scenes featurettes and some behind-the-scenes webisodes as well. It's a shame they didn't try to get Lucas to let them put the Star Wars Holiday Special on there too.
So, I guess that's about it. "Fanboys" is not perfect, but it's still definitely great overall and thoroughly appreciated by myself and I suspect legions of others. However, if you're not a Star Wars fan, it might not do anything for you at all. It's probably not totally crucial to enjoyment of the film, but it certainly must help greatly. If you ARE a Star Wars fan though, definitely get this film. It's a MUST OWN!
Well, so much has been published here I can only find myself free from my stiffer, more formalistic reviews. Therefore I can indulge myself. This film, set, I think, in 1998 or early 1999, centers around a charming and somewhat obnoxious set of fanboys (plus one fangirl). They are complete STAR WARS "geeks" and who can blame them, really.
Among the group, word leaks that one of the friends is dying of cancer. From that we jump to plans being laid to sneak this friend into Skywalker Ranch (good luck trying that now, Mickey Mouse will get you before Yoda can grab his lightsaber). With incredibly hilarious highjinks during their road trip to the Ranch, somewhat homaged in the film Paul, any STAR WARS fan will understand this completely.
A special appearance by a most unlikely super star will leave some perplexed--but I understood that immediately. I leave it for you to discover. Ultimately, then, will they succeed? Will they succumb to the young die-hard STAR TREK fans they encounter on the road? Will George Lucas allow the dying fan a sneak preview of THE PHANTOM MENACE since he'll certainly be dead by the time it is officially released?
