Goofs

This short implies that George Lucas got the inspiration of the Howard the Duck movie from a pet duck named Howard. This is false as Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik were the actual creators of the Howard the Duck comic. George Lucas only served as a producer for the movie adaption and had no involvement with the creation of the character. See more »

Quotes

Aaron: My script is now complete. Soon I will rule the industry, and you'll still be writing line one of whatever it's called.
George: 3XR-259.7
Aaron: Exactly.

Highly recommended!
27 April 2005 | by (Salt Lake City, UT) – See all my reviews

For all who wonder how George Lucas got his inspiration for the "Star Wars" movies, here is how it came about (maybe). George has writer's block and can't figure things out in time to graduate, but people come into his life to help out right when he needs it. This movie is hilarious with hidden references to the "Star Wars" movies and a few of Lucas' other works! Something that is fun to show a small group of people late at night, or just a die hard SW fan. And great for outright laughs and something to chew on before EPISODE III opens on May 19th!

Search the web for this, it comes pretty cheap at $12-15 per copy, and is well worth the money spent!!!
