So I accidentally took some acid mixed with cough syrup and then I fell down a flight of stairs and suddenly I saw these horrible looking Wookies who were screeching for what seemed like hours and Bea Arthur sang to me and some old four-armed transvestite was making me dinner and I saw recycled footage of A New Hope and what must have been 3 days later I woke up in a puddle of Bacta-fluid and my own tears.

You know those people who say the Boba Fett cartoon in this travesty of a TV movie is "actually pretty good" or "not so bad"? They're wrong. It's as horrible as the rest. I can, without a trace of doubt, state that The Star Wars Holiday Special is the worst movie ever made. This is the point where George Lucas should have realized he'd created a monster.

George Lucas said: "If I had the time and a sledgehammer, I would track down every bootlegged copy of that program and smash it." That's exactly the same thing that proves it's a shit, and the same thing that will make any ill person have a morbid need to watch it, just to finally regret of being a curious human being.

If you thought the Ewoks were bad, wait to you see the Wookie children. But the show is noteworthy for it's animated short, which includes Boba Fett. My guess is that this is single biggest reason fans had such great expectations for Boba Fett--way cool in this short--and partially why they were so disappointed when he finally appeared on screen in *Jedi*.

Were I a STAR WARS devotee, I'm sure I would see this as a violation of what I believe in, and a humiliation of my loved ones. But I was just left numb. You want minutes upon minutes of unsubtitled Wookiee antics? Diahann Carroll as a singing fantasy for the pleasure (...) of Chewbacca's father? Endless and painfully stupid skits which embarass Art Carney and Harvey Korman? Bea fucking Arthur? Terrible animation for Boba Fett's debut? Harrison Ford looking bored? Lameness unlimited? You got it.

This movie should be used to interrogate prisoners, it's that bad. I managed 25 minutes before I decided I'd rather watch paint dry. How in the world did the cast manage to act through those lines? Shooting that must have been awful.

A terrifying, grotesque spectacle that manages to make a mockery of both Star Wars and Christmas. But Star Wars fans should probably see it, just to say they have. Carrie Fisher is out of her mind on cocaine in every frame she's in, which is hilarious.

Hardly unwatchable. Y'all're fuckin' pussies, apparently. As far as '70s TV variety shows go it's not even that bad. Regardless of intent, it humanizes people and things that can seem elevated and distant, like that photo of Barack Obama smoking a joint, or those creepy James Joyce love letters. On most days I'd rather throw this on than any of the prequels.

"Abysmal"? "Horrendous"? "Painful"? The English language simply lacks the vocabulary to accurately and precisely describe how soul-crushingly awful this film is. I think I'll weep and cry in a corner now.

I don't want to give a film a "0" score when there are 101 possible scores on the spectrum, but I really can't think of a single redeeming quality to The Star Wars Holiday Special. It does have all your favorite Star Wars characters and they all do absolutely nothing. I really wonder how the segments in this film were written. Is it possible for anybody to find this entertaining?

An obvious cash in of the worst possible type. It's just literally mind bending how anyone thought this was a good idea. It's so awfully out of character for every single Star Wars character involved. I honestly can't believe that this actually exists, let alone that I've seen it. Pure embarrassment for all involved I think is the only way to describe it. They should've just gone the full nine and had Vader give a round of high fives and knuckles to everyone.

I can't quite decide if this was a worse addition to the STAR WARS saga than the "Midiclorian" revelation in Episode one. Hm.. Right. let's stay positive here: The STAR WARS Holiday Special has ... uh.. no JarJar Binks. It does, however, have wookie families and.. singing... I think what I'm trying to say is that this is the movie equivalent of cancer.

An abysmal film. By no means is it good. However, it holds historical value for introducing us the Bounty Hunter that is Boba Fett, thus giving it 5 points. Plus 3 for Carrie Fisher looking extremely high throughout her scenes.

When I heard about it, I said "that's so insaneI need to see it". When I was 3 minutes into it, I shouted "Holy shit this is hilarious!" When I'd watched appx 20 minutes of un-subtitled wookie sit-com cross-cut with terrible 70s music-videos I found myself with shotgun barrel in my mouth...

I....Wha-.... I mean, ask 10 people what the strangest part of the Star Wars Holiday Special is and you may get 10 different answers. Is it the searing family drama performed entirely in Wookie without subtitles? Is it watching lil' Lumpy watch an entire instructional video in real time? Is it the appearance of musical guests Jefferson Starship? Is it the inexplicable five minute Cirque Du Soleil dance break? No, the strangest part is Boba Fett riding a dinosaur.
