Trivia

The most complex shot to film on set was during the escape from Black Helmet man and the troopers, back on to the "Hand" to fly away. The shot of the crew and droids running onboard and down the passageway to the cockpit took nearly 2 hours to film for a shot that lasted just seconds. See more »

Poor Parody
25 September 2002 | by fthcolumnSee all my reviews

There were many times I saw this movie on DVD and almost bought it. But I'm sure glad I didn't! This is the worst satire ever. I couldn't even watch the whole thing. It's way too long and never funny. Princess Leia with Danish pastries on her head might've gotten a couple laughs in 1978, but by now it's a tired and worn out joke. And what's the point of having the characters as thumbs? It has nothing to do with the humor (or lack of). I love Star Wars and fan films, but this is just bad news!
