As much as we love Star Wars at Reels and Wheels, we can't do much with it since there are no cars (Unless you count the car they used to stand in for the ship that crashed into the Super Star Destroyer's bridge). However, there is a new hope! To celebrate the debut of Star Wars Episode 7, Reels and Wheels presents Star Wars Episode 4.5 - Corvette Summer!
It's 1978 and Mark Hamill is Kenny, a whiny brat who loves a car he saved from the junkyard along with his shop class. When the car is stolen, said whiny brat finds himself in a far off galaxy (Las Vegas) battling evil (Brion James!) only to find out that his father figure is the main villain all along. Sound familiar?
Except this time Luke's mom is a bit of a slut and he falls in love with a girl who is an aspiring prostitute.
Ok, so it's not exactly Star Wars. As a matter of fact, Hamill hoped this movie would help him avoid being typecast. Sadly, it was too mired in the 1970's to endure - especially with the Corvette. A gawdy, overdone customized C3.
Join James and Sid in a galaxy far away for a movie that really isn't as bad as it sounds, even though it doesn't have Han Solo in it.
