    It’s clearly open season.

    Now, the AARP are getting in on the act of trolling the disenfranchised.

    What a time to be alive.

    I thought it was more of a millennial kind of movie? (Depressing, politically correct, diverse, vegan, etc)

      Re: I thought it was more of a millennial kind of movie?

      Asking yourself that question?

      No, you were wrong. As the award demonstrates, it takes an adult to understand the movie. Sorry if Rian’s SW story was too grown-up for you.

        What a load of Sh!t, a monkey would find TLJ insulting to its intelligence.

          What are you talking about?
          If you enjoyed this film you are in a special club, full of special people who are especially mature and can understand subtle nuances that non-special people don’t understand because they’re not very clever and their breaths smell, nuh, nuh.
          You don’t understand TLJ because you’re not special enough 🙂
          Silly sausage.

        “It takes an adult to understand the movie”; c’mon, I thought we were past that simplistic argument.

      Lol, not to mention eye rollingly unoriginal, oh, looks like you’ve already upset one of the sheep parrot hybrids Gerry.

    Unfortunately what I have seen online is to many Star Wars fans are not grownups.

  • February 7, 2018 at 8:12 pm

    Clearly they don’t know their target audience.

  • February 7, 2018 at 8:19 pm

    How is this different than the Adult Movie Awards?

  • February 7, 2018 at 8:29 pm

    They should have called this the fake movie awards. Doesn’t change the fact that the TLJ sucks!!! Meaningless awards!!!

    • February 7, 2018 at 11:08 pm

      You made a Disqus account solely to whine about this movie.

      • February 8, 2018 at 10:03 am

        I am sure the Donald likes TLJ. I don’t.

    • February 7, 2018 at 11:37 pm

      Is that you, Donald?

    Don’t expect it to take home any honors at the Childish Manboy Awards.

  • February 7, 2018 at 11:39 pm

    Who else came straight to the comments on this one? :-p

    A Disney movie wins the movies for grown ups award. Is it April 1st?

  • February 8, 2018 at 8:46 am

    The irony that such a reward is rather childish.

    Nothing wrong with being a kid at heart though.

  • February 8, 2018 at 1:02 pm

    Never heard of AARP and this award. Is it a good one?

    “Best Movie for Grownups”

    what the heck

  • February 12, 2018 at 6:21 pm

    Wait a second. When fans were criticizing this terrible movie the response argument was “you know this is a kids movie right”. Now according to some in the comments section “You need to be a grown up to understand this movie”. Give me a break. Worst Star Wars movie, ever!
