Trivia

The most complex shot to film on set was during the escape from Black Helmet man and the troopers, back on to the "Hand" to fly away. The shot of the crew and droids running onboard and down the passageway to the cockpit took nearly 2 hours to film for a shot that lasted just seconds. See more »

May the thumbs be with you, always...
2 September 1999 | by Take2-2See all my reviews

'Thumb Wars' is a hilarious 'Star Wars' parody! The cast of thumbs couldn't be better. Steve Odenkirk has created a spoof that will stand the test of time. I hope that it will continue to be shown on TV and released on video. May the thumbs be with you, always...
