Trivia:

The passenger side door of the van has the word "fanboys" written on it in the 'Star Wars' Aurebesh alphabet and mirrored.

Goofs:

Incorrectly regarded as goofs:
When Eric approaches his old friends at the party, Windows says "god, it's been parsecs". A Parsec is a measure of distance, Not time. This is deliberate, as it was also an error made by Han Solo in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

User Review

Yes, it's full of clichés, so what?

Rating: 7/10


Although this product is far from inventive, or full of carefully
orchestrated comedy. It is by no matter of means, slow and boring. If
anything, it makes the time fly.

The humour is rather stupid and vulgar, but if you're even close to
being a sci-fi geek yourself, or able to appreciate how hilarious this
kind of archetype can be. You won't be disappointed.

However, there is a failed attempt at adding heartfelt drama to this
movie, no doubt trying to inspire people to follow their dreams and
remind them that the time for doing so, is limited. Which isn't a bad
thing to do, obviously. It just seemed a little bit out of place. On
that note; I have no clue as to why drama and crime are added to this
film's genre, you might as well add romance and sci-fi.

Disconnect your brain and laugh your aches away!
