In 1998, four childhood buddies with a shared love of all things Star Wars reunite for one final, hilarious odyssey. Their insane plan: a cross country road trip to storm George Lucas' "Skywalker Ranch" and steal a copy of Episode 1 before it's released. With the police, a crew of angry Trekkies, and a crazy pimp hot on their trail, what could possibly go wrong?
Featuring Dan Fogler, Jay Baruchel, and Kristen Bell, plus a slew of hysterical surprise cameos.
I saw the trailer for this film and just had to watch it. I will admit from the outset that I am a Star Wars fan and have seen my fair share of Trek, so this film actually made sense. Beyond the Star Wars gags and stolen lines, however, was a surprisingly sad (and I don't mean pathetic... it was actually sad) story of a guy who has cancer and won't live long enough to see the long anticipated release of Episode 1... and the friends who decide to go on a suicidal road trip to try and fulfill his dream.
There were a great many things to laugh at in this film, but it was also grounded enough to be satisfying. Contains accidental drug use, gay stripping and plenty of male sexual references... though surprisingly no actual sex scenes. I found this a cute and rather entertaining Road Trip movie that I may get around to seeing again one day.
