Not only did this movie fail to cure cancer, it failed to prevent the 2000 election contest or the release of Limp Bizkit's "Significant Other." On the plus side, it had several hilarious crude ethnic stereotypes that had been missing from all but the finest Eddie Murphy films. Add the bananas double light saber fight at the end and you would have had a five star movie , but I had to subtract one full star because according to the Eddie Murphy math, there was only one fart from the CGI characters, which is nowhere near enough.
EDIT: A friend has prompted me to scrutinize my rating of this film. You know, sometimes we believe that, like The Force, movies are made of magic. But then you get older, and you learn that movies, like The Force are not made of magic, but science and technology. And that's why I'm giving this movie an extra star, because of the CGI "wizardy" (wink) on display in Episode I. Let's just say the extra star is made of midichlorians!
(H/t to Dan!)
