If you liked The Banger Sisters...

From the Amazon page of:


"You wanna watch Hour 62 of The War tonight, hon? No? OK, your pick, then. What about the one where Queen Amidala has a baby in Wal-Mart?"

The Ultimate Chick Flick Collection on Amazon? I'm pretty sure it appeared as a "customers also bought" link when I was looking up a photo for this. It's either that or my biweekly Ever After search.
