When I first heard about a movie in the works called Fanboys -- the tale of five twentysomethings driving cross-country to steal a copy of Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace -- I thought, "Really? They want to steal The Phantom Menace? Why?" Then I remembered back to right before Episode I came out, and how excited I was about it... and I still couldn't believe it. But then, I was graduating college in May of 1999, so I guess I was a little distracted, but my friends and I must have seen it on opening night, didn't we? Maybe? I honestly can't remember. Obviously, I'm not a die-hard, lifelong Star Wars fan like the characters in this movie. (Although I did buy the Episode I soundtrack, for some reason.) So while Fanboys sounded funny, and like something I might want to see, I didn't obsessively count the minutes until it came out. A good thing, too, because it didn't come out for another three years.
