First off, I didn't hate it. I know lots of people did for whatever reason, but I didn't hate it. Did I love it? No. I actually enjoyed the random bits of humour, although I did find myself laughing alone more than once. Overall I'd say it was not at all what I expected, but that's probably a good thing when it comes to Star Wars. We need new things in these movies, not just a series of winks and nods to the old ones.
