Today is the twentieth anniversary of Star Wars: Attack on New Jersey. Twenty years ago today, the film opened to rave reviews and enthusiastic audiences, in forty-nine states. Needless to say, it bombed in New Jersey!
Set in 1977, the movie didn't fail to include our favorite Saturday Night Live advice correspondent, Roseanne Roseannadanna.
"A mister Richard Feder from Fort Lee, New Jersey, writes: 'Dear Roseanne Roseannadanna: I thought Star Wars was only a movie, that depicted events that occurred a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Now, starting a fes days ago, New Jersey has fallen under attack by UFO's. UFO's that look uncannily like the Galactic Empire's triangular Star Destroyers have been bombing us, while those that are the spitting image of their TIE Fighters have been strafing us! My question to you is: Where did they come from? Why are they here? How did they get here? And why can't our US military stop them?'
"Mister Feder, you ask a lot of STUPID QUESTIONS, even for a guy from New Jersey!"
