Am I the only one who liked Joe Piscopo? Seems like everything that guy showed up in was critically panned. Dead Heat teams him up with Treat Williams (well known for playing villains in the latter part of his career) and they make an appealing duo. The story is absurd but the direction wisely aims for a tongue-in-cheek mood. Another one of those movies that you either go along with or don't. I went with it and had a lot of fun.
A rousing adventure from the creator of Star Wars, Mr. George Lucas. Ron Howard was a great choice to direct this film as he has the midas touch with ensemble casts. Val Kilmer and Warwick Davis have wonderful chemistry together, you buy into their friendship instantly. Jean Marsh's Queen Bavmorda is a fantastic villain, on par with Ian McDiarmid's Emperor Palpatine. I also liked the pint-size brownie characters, Rool and Franjean. Very appealing comic relief. Who cares if this copies the formula of Star Wars, it's a good retread. You get plenty of action, loads of heart, and characters you care about.
