Quotes

Captain Jyanix Bach: Well, what we had here was that these, uh, Jawas had stolen some Imperial property and it unfortunately turned violent. These Jawas do this kind of stuff all the time, pickin' up, you know, stray droids and sellin' them off to the highest-paying customer...

Hilarious parody
20 May 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

Troops is an awesome parody of Cops and Star Wars. I downloaded it off the Internet and, though it took very long to download, it was worth it. Troops fills in the holes of Episode IV, by explaining what really happened to the Jawas, Uncle Owen and Luke's Aunt. It's also hilarious to see the stolen droid is none other than MST3K's Tom Servo. This is a must see.
