Spoof-tributes have never been so funnyBy Vivacia (28 reviews) from London , 12 Dec 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Forget Spaceballs and Galaxy Quest - this is the ultimate spoof of any Sci-Fi film. Ever! Okay that may be going a bit far but this is by far the funniest Star Wars tribute you will see for a long time.
We begin with a power outage in Quahog, knocking out all the lights, refrigirators and worst of all TV. So what's a Griffen family to do in such dire straights? Well, tell a story of course, and Peter is only too glad to tell his tale of a long time ago 'that's somehow in the future'. The whole of A New Hope is covered in the following 50 minutes, with all of your favourite Star Wars characters played by recognisable faces. The whole Star Wars score is also here, always present in the background with Peter humming along at one point.
Anyone who watches Family Guy will no doubt love this (though be warned, this is in fact an extended episode from season six so it may not be worth buying it on it's own - rent it instead!) and even those unfamiliar with the world of Peter Griffen should be amused enough to get them interested to see the rest of the series. What the phantom menace are you waiting for?

Family Guy - Blue HarvestBy Wakko (10 reviews) from Manchester , 24 Jan 2010As a big fan of Family Guy, I found this mini movie a let down. The main problem is the fact they've kept way too faithful to the original Star Wars, to the point of re-creating it scene for scene. It would of been much better if they used the movie as a base, and worked the Family Guy charm all over it. Instead we get a rework a whole scene, with a FG gag at the end. On a positive note though the animation is great, and the character choice was spot on.
Poor stuffBy Killarapp (12 reviews) from Sunderland , 22 Jan 2010Might be being a little bit harsh with the numbers, but this is new formulatic family guy over the bouncy free style the show used to have when it was fresh. The biggest problem is that its basically A New Hope in its enterity with classic scenes ruined with basic jokes, had they tried to tell a Star Wars story and break away from the films narrative they would have created something more than just admiration and immitation. Family Guy for some reason decided to set itself some rules and expectations, the show no longer has the off the wall anything is possible feel anymore.
Even so the jokes are typical of Family Guy, nothing suprises and im sure theres funnier Star Wars parodies out there, and episodes of family guy.
Star wars gets family guyedBy Lisa from England , 11 Jan 2010Being a massive family guy fan I couldn't miss this, no it's not one of the better episodes but still dam funny. Great take off not only of star wars but a comic nod in the direction of some of Hollywoods Sweathearts. Like the TV series it is sometimes close to the mark but therein lies the best jokes. The 'casting' was a stroke of genius, especially loved Stewie as the evil Darth Vadar. For me it was a lot less scathing than I prefered so hence the three stars. Well worth a look though for family guy and star wars fans alike.
Only for star wars fansBy DannyS (3 reviews) from Luton , 29 Nov 2009I am not a star wars person so did not like this family guy. Would not bother unless you are into star wars.
