30 Days of Film (18): Favorite Comedy Film

Fanboys. There are two kinda of people in this world. Those that hate the prequel Star Wars films, and idiots. This film was made by the former, and you can tell.

The story is about a group of nerds travelling across the country to Lucasfilm in order to steal an original print of Star Wars Episode 1. The film also tackles the age old battle of what sci-fi franchise is better, Star Wars or Star Trek, with Seth Rogen playing devils advocate by portraying multiple characters on both sides of the argument.

There are also a ton of nods to nerd culture, from Mario Kart 64 competitions to cameo's by Carrie Fisher and Billy Dee Williams and even the sworn enemy of every Star Wars fanboy out there... William Shatner.

If you have any fiber in your bone that you proudly call 'nerd' you need to see this film.
