The fact that this is a Star Wars product and has not been released since the original airing should give you a hint as to how terrible it is.

Astonishingly abysmal, how anybody thought this was a good idea for a respectable series such as Star Wars I can't imagine. It's like a childrens pantomime, poorly put together, poorly planned, boring as hell and completely embarassing to watch. I couldn't bring myself to bear the full two hour viewing, I simply couldn't submit myself to any more of this voluntary torture. There are bad films. There are films so incredibly bad that you feel like projectile vomiting, but then there's this.

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.

If you haven't seen this, you're probably thinking, "I'll watch it with my friends! We're gonna make fun of it!" Don't do it. The whole thing is so incredibly boring, awkward, and uninteresting that it's impossible to enjoy even on that level. Watching this will make you bored out of your mind and physically sick.

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*.

Carrie Fisher wasn't the only one strung out on cocaine during the making of this. It was certainly widely administered just to get the crew though the shoot. Should have been provided to the audience as well. Lucas slapped the Star Wars logo on everything else, why not on cocaine? [Rifftrax can't even save this one. While there is the occasional funny quip it's mostly just them whining about how bad it all is. They also break into giggle fits far too often. Avoid if you can help it.]

"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.

WHY WOULD YOU MAKE THE MOVIE SO MUCH NOTHING? WHY? WHAT HAPPENED TO MAKE THIS SO AWFUL? THIS WAS DURING THE TIME STAR WARS WAS AWESOME! WHY DID THIS SUCK SO HARD?

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.

I don't see what the problem is with the Star Wars Holiday Special. The clue is in the title - it's a holiday special, so it was supposed to be a family entertaining special, probably at prime-time on TV. Throw in a few minor celebrities and a few musical numbers and you have something the whole family can enjoy! I didn't like it, but it wasn't as awful when considered as what it was.

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.

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.

When I heard about it, I said "that's so dumb I 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 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?

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.
