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.

Quite simply the worst film ever made. Even the prequels are better. Hell, even the commercials aired during the show are better.

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.]

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?

Both of those points go toward the kinda cool Boba Fett cartoon. Otherwise, this thing is an absolute bore. I'd like to know who thought any of this would be at all entertaining to watch.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

"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.

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.

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.

NOTHING FUCKING HAPPENS IN THIS STUPID FUCKING MOVIE. NOTHING! I watched this with the Rifftrax commentary and that did not help one iota! WHY WOULD YOU MAKE THE MOVIE LIKE THIS? 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?

Definitely not one of those "so bad it's good"-type films - it's immeasurably worse! Truly beyond painful to watch. Don't do it. Don't even consider it. (Ever.)

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.

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*.

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.

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.

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.
