*** THIS COMMENT DOES CONTAIN SPOILERS, ALL MORE OBVIOUS THAN DARTH VADER'S BREATHING ***

OK, firstly - even if you despise Star Wars and would rather remove your own eyeballs than be forced to watch the originals, you will thoroughly enjoy this, perhaps so much so that you will put away the gouger.

In a whirlwind ride, comprising fantastic impressions of all the familiar characters (yes, even Jar-Jar Binks), lightning-quick character changes, a Yoda puppet and a plush toy Anakin Skywalker, the Reduced Shakespeare Company take us through all of the Star Wars films in less than half an hour, rousing goofy smiles and big laughs.

It includes such gems as "The Attack of the Clones" song, "Ode To An AT-AT", and lines such as 'This is my apprentice, Obi Wan Kenobi, and I am Liam Neeson' - and, yes, the scary Yoda puppet (who admits 'Syntax my all messed up is!')

Stay put because, right at the end, these guys pull off an almost impossible feat - they perform the whole darn thing in 60 SECONDS. As Yoda himself might (not) say, "Amused indeed I am."
