Trivia

Artoo's bungee jump was performed three times at a real bungee jump attraction located at Fox Studios, Sydney, Australia. The first two times a bungee cord was used, but was not on the third try, which is the footage in the documentary. A special R2 was created for this scene, and was completely destroyed. The emergency room follow-up scene was shot seven months later at Petaluma Valley Hospital, Petaluma, California. See more »

Quotes

Candy Clark: I always liked short guys and Artoo was my ultimate short guy. He had that one great eye. I *loved* looking into that eye.

HILARIOUS!!!
6 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is the funniest documentary ever! It was a small documentary about Artoo-Detoo's life outside of star wars. I thought it was funny when Steven Spielberg said he could of used Artoo-Detoo in Saving Private Ryan or when Francis Ford Coppola said he could of been in The God Father. I think any star wars fan or movie critic should see this little 5 to 10 minute documentary. If you know someone who has it on tape or you know where you can down load it you should watch it!
