Family Guy meets Star Wars. This movie is hilarious! Take the wacky yet brilliant humor of Family Guy and apply it to Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope. The result is one damn entertaining movie.
The only gripe I had with the movie was its length. It is about 45 minutes long. This “movie” is actually the season 6 opener, aired on TV in September, 2007. The 45 minute length is the amount of content shown during a regular hour of broadcast television, with commercials filling up the rest of the time. It would have been great if this movie was feature length, say 80 minutes or so.
The Family Guy characters fit perfectly with their new Star Wars roles, with the exception of Meg, the daughter. Meg only makes a tiny cameo appearance. Chris Griffin plays Luke Skywalker. Peter Griffin plays Han Solo. Lois Griffin plays Princess Leia. Little Stewie as Darth Vader is just superb. “My diaper has gone over to the Dark Side.”
Funny movie. It is great even if you aren’t a Family Guy or Star Wars fan, although you may miss a few jokes. Just wish the movie was longer.
