If I had the same people and sets etc. to work with I couldn't have made a film worse than this if I tried.

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.

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?

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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...

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.

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.]
