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.

You watch it with someone to make fun of it because it's so bad. It has no other value... just don't underestimate sitting down to make fun of it.

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.

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.

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.

For completists only. This had to have been created as something else entirely and only had Star Wars slapped on it because of the Box Office success of the first movie. The characters don't have any resemblance to characters in the Star Wars universe, other than physically. For the first 15-20 minutes you might find it "so bad it's hilarious," especially if you're watching it with a group, but before the half-way point (save for the cartoon) it becomes un-watchable and tedious beyond belief.

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...

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.

Like any great sci-fi, this film asks the audience questions. Unfortunately in this case, they're questions like: What did I just watch? Why does Chewbacca's family have so much random technology? Why are they named Itchy and Lumpy? Why are there rock bands in the Star Wars universe? Can acting be more half-assed? Why does Chewbacca's dad have an orange singing girl fetish? Who do I blame for this crime against humanity?

The actual "special" is pretty horrible, but the cartoon is actually really good. But man... Bea Arthur sings.. and Leia sings... and various wookies jump around and do household chores... this was REAL bad.

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*.

"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.

Do not watch it. Even out of curiosity. If you MUST, look up the Bea Arthur segment on YouTube, watch that, and pretend the rest of the movie is anywhere near as good.

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.

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?

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.

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.
