If the prospect of a two-hour Star Wars Holiday Special conjured up visions of "May the force be with you" repeated ad nauseam in your head, this show on CBS was a welcome surprise.

So astounding in its lack of anything that could be considered reasonably watchable that it achieves something of an unintended, surrealist nightmare vision.

Art Carney and Bea Arthur versus Darth Vader? This galaxy isn't far, far away enough!
| Original Score: 3/5

Calling The Star Wars Holiday Special a uniquely repulsive failure of the filmmaker's art is an unearned compliment.

[It] makes us smile, but only because we are laughing at the utter horror. We laugh to avoid the pain.

Yes, it was that unprecedented. Yes, it was that bad.

One can imagine Lucas practicing his Jedi mind tricks: 'This isn't the holiday special you're looking for. You don't need to see this bootleg VHS.'
