Star Wars XXX (4 Stars)

It's claimed that this is the highest budget pornographic film ever made. I've tried to find out the size of the budget, without success. All I know for certain is that it must be more than $8 million, since that was the budget of the previous record holder, "Pirates XXX 2". This might sound like peanuts compared to the budgets of Hollywood blockbusters, but you have to remember that a typical porn film is just half a dozen people banging one another inside a house.A typical porn film budget is anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000, and a budget of $100,000 is considered to be huge.

"Star Wars XXX" is described as a "porn parody". Usually I point out that Axel Braun's films aren't really parodies, but in this case it really is. The film contains a lot more comedy than any of his other films. Nevertheless, the attention to detail is outstanding. As soon as you see a character you're immediately reminded of the person in the 1977 film. It's not just the uniform, it's the facial resemblance and the mannerisms. As well as this, great pains were taken to make the sets resemble the locations in the original film as much as possible.

One other advantage of the film is that so many of the actors claim to have been Star Wars fans all their life. Derrick Pierce (Labria) says he has watched "Star Wars" (or "Star Wars Episode IV", as it was later renamed) at least 30 times. Dick Chibbles says that he has always wanted to play Luke Skywalker, or at least Han Solo, and he was disappointed that he could "only" play Chewbacca. Seth Gamble, who seems to have the same real life personality as Luke Skywalker in the original film, describes himself as a Star Wars geek. In the "Behind the scenes" featurette the cast members stand up one by one to proclaim their love for the film.

Allie Haze is the most beautiful Princess Leia ever, and we see Luke Skywalker lose his virginity. What's not to like about the film?
