Consistently Corny

From Rolling Stone’s 1977 interview with George Lucas:

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.* * **
