A powerful corporate mogul is trapped in his home by a deranged deadbeat roommate named TOBO, the brother of his wife who is plotting to kill him and everyone else in the movie. Meanwhile everyone else is plotting to kill everyone else.
Julie, who died of a PCP overdose as a teen in the early '70s, searches from beyond the ethers for her little brother, Bob, an obese watch-seller, who is dying of sucrose intolerance, in the early '90s.
Deep Star Wars fans might find this release mildly offensive, but most of us will more likely die of laughter. I nearly did.
Where do you begin to describe this movie then? Its not very politically correct. Damon Packard has used behind-the-scenes material from the making of Star Wars, scenes from the SW movies, other movies and self-made material and edited it into a huge satire on George Lucas and Star Wars.
One sequence in particular stands out. The scene from Apocalypse Now where Marlon Brando's recordings of madness is put on play to the disturbed and scared face of Martin Sheen is replaced with a recording of George Lucas rambling along how he needs CGI- characters to tell the story of the movie he has in mind.
Other material has a more harmless nature. Damon Packard has edited himself into the making of Star Wars, arguing with Lucas and replacing CGI-models of monsters with small toy figures with raccoons and such. Also there's a very funny battle scene were dialog is replaced and inserted with all kinds of silly stuff. Basically, its amazingly funny.
You should definitely try and get it if you can, because its a highly inventive and funny movie.
