Skip the movie and read this instead. Though the "why on earth would Padme have fallen for him?!" is more painfully present in this than in the 2nd possibly. Ian Doescher does an incredible job considering how awful the writing was for the movie.
But seriously, WHY ON EARTH PADME??
It's actually possible that the third movie wasn't as bad as I remember it being, but the problem is you can't untangle it from the 2nd and I know the 2nd was exactly as bad as I remember it being.
Anyway, if you haven't read these, what is wrong with you?
Go read them already.
