Quotes

Captain Jyanix Bach: I joined the Empire about six years ago. I remember as a kid, you know, watching the holographic images and being excited about the new direction that the galaxy was taking. So, when I was old enough, I went down to the local recruitment center, you know, and signed up. And I've been here at Tattooine ever since.

Couldn't believe how good it was!
31 August 1999 | by (Annandal, Va) – See all my reviews

When I first saw it I couldn't believe this was done by an "amateur crew". You can actually believe it could be some lost footage of the original Star Wars film. Lucas should give these guys a job doing the new sequels. Excellent, hilarious and great fun for everybody. Can't wait for the sequel.
