Added DiffLines:

* BileFascination: ''Infamously so'', thanks in no small part to its underground status and the hatred it has received from [[CreatorBacklash George Lucas]] himself and everyone involved. Those who've seen it no doubt consider it a miracle that the franchise survived this trainwreck.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: A side effect of KeepCirculatingTheTapes, the original commercials from the one airing show a lost world of union-made underwear, Ma Bell and fake-wood-paneled Mercury station wagons.

Added DiffLines:

** Harvey Korman crossdressing as the alien chef; his layers of makeup and ''very'' fake looking hair make him look like an EldritchAbomination.
-->'''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic:''' Who the hell designed that thing? He looks like Cinderella's stepmother and that robot maid from the Jetsons!

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Leia singing the song for Life Day (the Wookiee equivalent of Christmas) might be {{Narm}}y, cheesy, and/or cringe-inducing, but it becomes ''brutally'' ironic after Creator/CarrieFisher suffered a heart attack two days before Christmas 2016, spent the next four days in a coma before dying, and her mother died (apparently of [[DeathByDespair despair]]) the day after that.

** Ackmena the bartender (Bea Arthur), even more so since Arthur's death. WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic seems to consider her the only remotely enjoyable thing in the entire film, as do WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob and [[WebVideo/CinematicExcrement The Smeghead]]. And it doesn't just apply to fans; people who work on the ''Star Wars'' franchise loved her so much that they added her to the expanded universe, [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ackmena wherein she's stated to have gone on to join a group dedicated to freeing Tatooine slaves]]. Her character even made the transition to existing in the new canon after appearing in the ''Complete Locations'' reference book.

The webcomic ''WebComic/BlueMilkSpecial'' liked her so much they 'recast' Ackmena as Halla in their ''Literature/SplinterOfTheMindsEye'' arc just so they could keep using her.
