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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.]

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
