12 Movies That Would be Better Starring Boba Fett

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a really awesome bounty hunter captured the imaginations of a generation of Star Wars nerds. No, I’m not talking about Bosk, IG-88, or even the fat guy with the head wound, Dengar. I’m talking, of course, about Boba Fett, who is something of a cult hero from the Star Wars universe. Way back in college, I can remember a friend of mine owning a Boba Fett coffee mug that he’d proudly display everywhere he went. Bear in mind that this was in 1996, before the prequels and twelve years after the original trilogy had ended. He was no hipster. There was no irony intended. At any rate, Boba Fett makes everything better. So here are a twelve movies that I think would improve if they involved the Fett helmet, a blaster, and a jet pack.

Pretty Woman

What About Bob?

Howard’s End

Sex and the City

Cop and a Half

The Bounty Hunter

Jersey Girl

Bob Roberts

National Treasure


Gone With the Wind

Weekend at Bernie’s

    I can’t stop laughing! ‘What About Boba?’ is the best of the lot, by far. Love it!

    • It was one of the more fun photoshop jobs I’ve done in awhile. I couldn’t help but giggling to myself while trying to think of dumb places to stick Boba Fett’s helmet.

    Oh NOOOO, should’ve been Weekend At Boba’s. Maybe have Stormtrooper helmets on Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman (DAMN, I really had hoped I’d forget their names by now)

    “What About Boba?” is amazingly funny…you captured the cartoon Boba perfectly.

    I agree “What About Boba?” is genius, but my favorite is definitely “Interiors.”

    Mwahahahaha… this post ought to come with a warning sign ‘beware viewing this at work!’ LOVE this, I forwarded it to my colleagues, we all need a bit of laugh on Tuesday afternoon, right?

    You gotta make this a regular feature, I mean the possibilities are endless!

    • Heh… I did it with Futurama characters back in the fall. I probably should’ve gone full-bore and done the Star Wars universe (rather than just Boba Fett).

    Other possibilities:
    Regarding Boba–Think of the possibilities with Harrison Ford; Same Time Next Year, Boba–Alan Alda having an intergalactic affair; Boba, Carol, Ted, and Alice; Boba and Ted’s Excellent Adventure; Dude, Where’s Boba’s Car?; The Adventures of Boba and Doug McKenzie; and finally The Boba Newhart Show.

  7. When I saw that The Bounty Hunter was coming out, I immediately thought of Boba Fett. He’s the most famous bounty hunter, by far (even ahead of Dog the Bounty Hunter). Screw Gerard Butler.

    I’d be interested in a showing of Whatever Happened to Boba Jane? Especially if there were pig tails and excessive blush involved.
