Sincere about FANBOYS gives me a likeable thought as a part-time humorous, part-time drama and of-course part-time road trip movie that pushes it real heavy to the Star Wars lovers. There are noticeable cameos that include the original Star Wars actors to be thrice are Billy Dee Williams, Ray Park and Carrie Fisher and non-Star Wars people like William Shatner and Kevin Smith and there's the big and most important scene that every fanatic should like is where the main characters get into a fight with the Trekkies.

While many critics were negative about the whole film of FANBOYS because some of the content of the laughs isn't suitable for the younger fan-boys, I don't care what the others would say about the lowbrow feature, it can be very appreciative and touching to the older Star Wars fans even those who haven't seen the famous and popular original trilogy.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
