I would have thought about making this a 2 or 3 star but since I only gave “Star Wars: Episode I� I figure this should just be a 1 star. There are a number of good laughs, but this movie could have been made a half-hour or more shorter. The chase scene was not exciting and seemed like a waste of time. The romantic/love story was just tacked on to waste more time, and not seeing how a mute alien could end up having sex with anyone. The alien’s gifts were inconsistent throughout the story. There was an actual theme of slavery, but I think that it would have been better to not have the dark skinned alien running away from light skinned aliens, it is just too predictable. Some of the bar scenes were pointless as well.
