Review of That Movie experience

We saw the new Star Wars movie last night at midnight. The experience was nearly as overstimulating as the movie's opening sequences. A rough breakdown:

Percentage of audience consisting of completely amped up teenage boys running (literally) around with light sabers: 7%

Ratio of boy to girl costume wearers: 20 to 1

Best quote overheard: "Oh my god. What am I going to do when this is all over?"

Second best quote overheard: "It's a good thing I'm feeling so fat today since I decided to dress up as Jabba the Hut."

Most refreshing moment: Collective groaning/laughing during love scenes and other you're-kidding-me moments. My god but Sammy could write better stuff than this, and she's a dog.

Most disappointing: Keisha Castle-Hughes was only on screen for 2 seconds. What a waste of great young talent. (Wait a minute...that sums up most of the performances.)

Most entertaining: the cityscapes and other architectural shtuff

How about my quote: "Oh thank God this is finally over. No more Star Wars movies."
