  • 4 stars "This is a really fun, sweet movie. I don't usually like road trip movies much, but this one really appealed to me. I guess I have respect for Star Wars nerds (especially when they're up against Trekkies. *shudders* I have a phobia) and I myself speak in dorky film references, which endeared all these characters to me. The dialogue and visual gags all hit their marks, and the story, while simple, worked really really well. I love how the writers tiptoed around the fact that Phantom Menace was lousy while keeping their respect for the saga intact. I'd see this again. I really like it."
