NEVER TELL THEM THE ODDS.
In 1998, Star Wars nerd Linus (Christopher Marquette) learns that he has only months left to live and decides, together with his friends, to break into George Lucas’s ranch and steal a print of the upcoming Episode I. This movie has a somewhat troubled history, and was generally panned by critics, but it’s not that bad. It’s a tribute to all you fanboys out there, introducing us to a likable bunch of geeks, and telling a story about friendship and the eternal battle between Star Wars nerds and Trekkies. Very slight, but amusing.
