Fanboys

I finally got around to seeing Kyle "Hello" Newman's love-letter to Star Wars yesterday. To paraphrase Princess Leia, it had its moments. Not many, but it did have its moments.

I haven't read much about the film outside of what I've taken in by osmosis, but I do agree it has some heart, it can be crude and downright amateur-looking at times, but otherwise it was okay. It started pretty well out of the blocks, stumbled pretty quickly before Kirsten Bell literally bailed the boys out, and William Shatner showed up to get the show moving in the right direction. Once that happened, the movie was pretty much saved, and while I think it doesn't deserve the mountain of fanboy-praise it has gotten, I'm giving it a some-what respectable C.
That's more or less my impression of it. I like Kyle personally but the movie had a very amateurish, derivative script and being a Star Wars fan does not = a fan of gutter humor.
