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.

Quotes

Herb: But there is something else, Bill, and that's Satan, because Satan does in fact exist. People often forget this, but God created Satan, and like all things that God creates, Satan has a purpose. Satan's purpose is so that there can be good and evil in the world, which are necessary to the existence of free will. And sometimes, in testing mankind, God allows Satan to win. He allows Satan to win by giving us the power to choose evil, instead of good, when we are tempted by Satan.

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.
