Trivia

Producers of the show Cops (1989) (which is also what Troops (1997) is parodying) gave the Troops producers 'Cops' hats and jackets. See more »

Goofs

According to Star Wars, the planet Tattooine orbits a double star. Therefore all inhabitants and objects on the planet should be casting two shadows. See more »

Quotes

Announcer: "Troops" is filmed on location with the men of the Imperial forces. All suspects are guilty. Period. Otherwise, they wouldn't be suspects, would they?

A masterpiece of spoof
12 August 1999 | by AverySee all my reviews

This film is so cleverly funny it's hard to explain. You could quite easily fit this into Star Wars IV A New Hope as it explains a couple of things within the film, including who really killed Uncle Owen & Aunt Beru. It also has the thumbs up from George Lucas. If you are a true Star Wars fan you must download this film at all costs. Every Star Wars fan MUST own a copy of this movie!!!!!!
