I've seen it twice and plan on seeing it a few more times. Right now I would say it ranks 2nd to Empire as my favorite of the 6 Star Wars movies.
As for people jumping up after the credits start to leave, I think that is because the movie is over. I don't know how many movies you go to or the customs down in Cabo, but where I leave people do that at every movie good or bad. No one stays after the movie just to hang out.
When a movie is really good or thought provoking or emotional people tend to sit for a bit while the credits are ruining to absorb what they have just seen and to switch gears back to reality. This movie evokes non of those feelings, it's all glitz and no substance. Just my take no need to get huffy.
