Forget Spaceballs- funniest Star Wars parody ever
13 September 2004 | by (Putney VT) – See all my reviews

A group of Star Wars fans conceive of the perfect plot to steal "The Phantom Menace" and watch it two weeks before the film opens.They pose as real-life Jedi Knights, and convince a die-hard Star Wars nerd that the beloved movies are in fact propaganda created by the Rebellion to generate sympathy on other planets. "The Phantom Menace", double-ended light sabers, droid armies, and Jar Jar Binks, are part of an Imperial plot to generate sympathy for the Galactic Empire, and he must steal the movie from the local cinema in order to bring peace and justice to the galaxy. The plot turns sour, however, when a double-agent emerges from the group with his own agenda.

Very funny, well-written, both poking fun at and showing affection towards die-hard Star Wars dorks. Up there with Hardware Wars as one of the best Star Wars parodies ever.
