The warped minds at Adult Swim's ROBOT CHICKEN take their demented sensibility to the holy grail of sci-fi epics, STAR WARS, in this hilarious special. Jaws will drop as Luke Skywalker and Emperor Palpatine trade "yo mama" jokes, George W. Bush and Abraham Lincoln battle it out with lightsabers, and Darth Vader sobs on the telephone. But the show really hits its stride when riffing on the franchise's supporting characters, including bug-eyed Admiral Akbar (promoting a delicious breakfast cereal), the rowdy barflies at the Mos Eisley Cantina (a couple of architects out for a tragic after-work drink), and of course Jar Jar Binks (thank you). As usual, a cast of celebrities lend their voices to the animated antics--including Hulk Hogan, Conan O'Brien, and James Van Der Beek--with even George Lucas getting in on the action for his flannel-clad counterpart.

About what you'd expect - by emdoub March 24, 2009 - 5:37 AM PDT

Pretty much the random, irreverant insanity fans of the show have come to expect. The "Luke, I *am* your father" scene from their first season is recycled in this special episode.

Runtime, from opening sequence to the 'Stupid Monkey' tag at the end, is just under 23 minutes. Extra features, commentary, behind-the-scenes, etc. run at least twice that, and are pretty amusing as well. If you've watched the show, you'll be wanting to see all of this. It's not deathless cinema, but it's an hour you'll enjoy.
