Sometimes funny, sometimes not.
22 December 2002 | by Jack the Ripper1888See all my reviews

From KUNG POW!: ENTER THE FIST director, Steve Oedekerk, comes yet another spoof of the Star Wars movies. Only with thumbs as the actors. There is not much to be said about this short film except that this is one of Oedekerk's 'Thumb' movies to be forgotten. It is not as funny as his later works, but it is still good for a laugh. It is a definite must-see if you are a fan of the Star Wars movies. I am not, but I still found it amusing.

THUMB WARS: 3/5.
