Touch your tongue to mine
7 March 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

this movie is HILARIOUS! if you like star wars,(or even better star wars spoofs) you will love this movie...Steve O. has thought of almost everything from where they live to the name of the characters (Loke Groundrunner=Luke Skywalker, Han Solo=Hand Duet, Princess Leia=Priness BunHead.) The funniest thing was the name they thought of for Obi Wan "Ben" Kenobi. Oobie Doob Scoobie Doobie Benubi. SEE THIS MOVIE...or better yet purchase it!!!
