Don’t get me wrong.
Fanboys looks funny. No doubt. But, at the same time, it just looks like alot of the other comedies that have come out in the past few years. In particular, it seems to follow alot of the rules from the Apatow hand-book. Similar to what Kevin Smith did w/ his latest film. And, if this is indeed the case then it will most likely be rendered as another entertaining, yet forgettable comedy like Role Models or Soul Men.
I can see why your friend would say that judging from the trailer for
Killshot, but if the film follows the novel as closely as the script would have one believe then it should be another well-constructed Elmore Leonard adaptation. In a similar vein to Jackie Brown & Out Of Sight.
We’ll just hafta see. If I’m wrong about this whole thing I’ll admit it straight-up to you, Geoi. Count on it.
I admit, it looks a lot like the others, but the fuckin trailer for it was out before Superbad was even filmed. I don’t know what has held it up for so long. I should probably look into it, but I can’t really be arsed right now.
