One interesting thing about the music -- which is sort of like the movie itself -- is that I really expected to get devastated in terms of people saying, "Oh, my God, what a stupid, old-fashioned thing and how corny can you get?" I am amazed that people just said, "Gee, that's fine." I really expected to get trounced very badly about the whole thing. And Johnny did too, a little bit. A lot of the lines in the movie are sort of . . . I wince every time I hear them.
And then later, "Not only a slightly corny dialogue here and a very simplistic, sort of corny plot... Some of Mark Hamill's lines are pretty corny." Well, at least he's consistent.
