Trivia

Although in the end TASB did have a written script, the original idea was for the movie to be completely improvised, somewhat after the manner of Christopher's Guest's movies (This is Spinal Tap; Best in Show; For Your Consideration), and in fact, a significant portion of the dialogue is derived from the actors' improvs during rehearsals.

I've Seen Better Acting in Gradeschool Christmas Plays

A Wretched Abortion of a Movie -

What do you get when one bizarrely egocentric star wars fan creates a movie to showcase every little thing that pops into his head? You guessed it, The Audience Strikes Back.

The only thing lamer than the last several star wars movies is a pretend panel discussing them.

The acting is terrible and the plot is practically non existent. I would be hard pressed to think of a stupider idea than a scripted panel about anything - but making it vaguely revolve around Star Wars gives this one an extra scoop of FAIL.
