It's, you know, for kids.
It was never meant for adult, Gen X STAR WARS fans.
That doesn't mean it's any good, though.
Watching this was like opening a time capsule from a much different time. And, I know it's not "cool" to say, but I'd love to see a sequel depicting what these characters are doing now that the majority of people listen to music on their smartphones.
UPDATE, 6April2018: Well, apparently Disney is making this into a TV show.
More action movies should have badass cold opens like this one. PSH really makes this thing work.
And, damn, Cruise was 44-going-on-24 when he made this. Maybe there is something to that Scientology thing. (Just kidding. It's good genes, hard work, and lots and lots of money.)
