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.

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?

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.]

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.

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.

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.

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.

"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 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.

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....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.

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.
