Go Starbuck!!!
3 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Flipping through channels led me to this sorry piece of work. I was about to move on until I noticed Starbuck. Instantly I was hooked and my waste of time started.

First off, I thought this movie was made in the 80s. Then I realized that Starbuck would have been a kid if that were true. Come to find out this movie was made in 2007. WTF? Isn't Starbuck a star? I mean, Battlestar Galactica is a hit show, at least in my realm.

Everything about this movie sucks; the plot, the lame, struggling dialogue (except Starbucks) and the cardboard actors (except Starbuck) who seem to be reading from cue cards. This movie is a combination of every known cliché. It is a repugnant skip along of horrendous dialogue coupled with that made for TV feel that will eventually drive you to commit an act from Hostel on yourself. If it wasn't for Starbuck, I would have passed, but alas, she is the reason for this review.

All I really wanted to see was Starbuck get wasted drunk, talk about her dead friends who died fighting the Cylons, bang Lee Adama, argue with Lee's dad and then fly a ship to Earth with her Cylon boyfriend who gave her a half-breed baby. This didn't happen. At least I don't think it happened because I never made it to the end of this movie. Once I realized that Starbuck was merely a character on another show played by the same person who was in this movie, I gave up. Apparently Starbuck is really someone named Katie Sackhoff. Whoa! Imagine my surprise when I found this out.

I hope that this movies success opens the way for a Lifetime/Battlestar crossover movie. All the Battlestar characters with a Lifetime script. Man I can't wait.

All in all this is a Lifetime Original piece of trash. It is totally worth watching for all you Lifetime/Starbucks fans (I know there are tons). How I Married My High School Crush is a good kick in the slats. Starbuck forever!
