Audience Reviews for George Lucas in Love
All the gags and comedic punches comes from knowing the Star Wars films. Haven't seen Star Wars? Too bad, this film ain't for you. But by now, who hasn't seen those films? Safe to say, if you did, it's quirky fun and sure to bring back a lot of nostalgia. Nevertheless, it's way too dependent on references to Star Wars.
I can't say I've seen many short films in my life, but this has got to be the best one I've seen thus far. The acting and directing is remarkably good and the story is very well thought out. Altogether a great tribute to the Star Wars universe.
And not to forget: now we know where George Lucas got his ideas from :-)
Funny romatnic comedy with Star Wars references.
