My wife and I had a date night over the weekend and we went to see Fanboys (Finally it was released in MN). It was a decent movie. I definately wouldn't pay full price to see it again, but it was good. Most of the funny parts were shown in the trailer, and everything else that has been shown for the movie. My favorite part is seeing Kristen Bell in the Slave Leia costume.
I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

A group of guys from PSWCS went to see it Friday in Pittsburgh.  Lots of funny moments.  A few jokes fell flat.  It was an enjoyable flick.

We met the cousin of the director at the screening.  He passed out a few posters, and was excited to see it released in the 'Burgh.

...?  Crap.  Still 3 hours minimum.  If it made it to Syracuse, maybe.  But probably not.  F the Weinsteins.

Weinsteins thought they had a dud on their hands, so they didn't want to go wide with it and spend the cash on prints.  The fact that it continues to expand is good for its prospects of a wide release.  The same thing happened with My Big Fat Greek Wedding - they didn't know if they're be an audience, so they expanded it slowly.  It went on to wide release and great success.  Fanboys per-screen average has been ok but not spectacular, so it's hard to tell at this point what'll end up happening.  I think the lack of advertising hasn't helped it.

Director Kyle Newman sent over details on the upcoming DVD release of Fanboys! See below...

FANBOYS comes to DVD on May 19th from Genius Products and The Weinstein Company.

Driven by passion, friendship and the power of the Force, four buddies hit the road in search of a galaxy far, far away in FANBOYS ... A raucous road trip comedy fueled by heart and an untainted love of the greatest movie saga of all time, FANBOYS follows a group of Star Wars fans as they hilariously attempt the impossible. Their mad plan: to break into George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch to see Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace a full six months before its worldwide release.

The FANBOYS DVD is priced at $19.97 and comes loaded with Special Features including:

- Deleted Scenes
- Commentary with the Cast & Crew
- The Truth about Fanboys
- Star Wars Parallel
- Four Fanboys & One Fangirl
- The Choreography
- Disturbances in the Force: A Series of Webisodes

"Fanboys is still gong strong nine weeks into our limited theatrical run, and heading into international markets, but I am truly excited because now every fan will finally have the opportunity to see the film. It's a perfect release date because May 19th is also the 10 year anniversary of The Phantom Menace!"

The Walmart bargin bin is getting closer!  :P

I finally saw this and loved every minute of it.
The cancer subplot was handled nicely
The cameos were superb
Great movie to watch with the mates drinkin beer
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself
