Traptacular fun!

  • Dec 22, 2010
No, not the internet kind of trap, but yet another Family Guy spoof of the Star Wars saga, now available on exciting blu ray! Does it hold up? In a word, yes. It's not as good as Blue Harvest or Something, Something, Something Dark Side, but it's quite watchable and entertaining.

The story begins with our heroes sitting around watching TV. The lights go out, Stewie says, "Does this mean we're gonna do Jedi?" and Peter says, "Might as well get this over with." From there we go to the opening crawl, wherein it's revealed, possibly accurately, that the Family Guy people didn't want to do this one. We go from there to the usual set of sight gags and familiar characters in new roles, including appearances by Roger, Klaus, Rallo and Tim the Bear. You get Meg in the expected spot, though the addition of someone very unexpected as the Rancor was quite fun.

There's several times I laughed out loud, including the Emperor's efforts to get Luke angry by dissing on Seth Green, or Peter/Han's efforts to make the movie "darker". While overall it wasn't quite as good as the other ones, or as funny as the TV series at its best, it was still very good and I feel happy that I bought it.

Extras include a digital copy that I was able to put onto my computer, but wasn't able to get it onto my phone using the PocketBlu feature. I spent several frustrating minutes trying before I gave up. There's also the expected commentary, a drawing lesson, "sock puppet" stuff and more! It's not something you'll really be likely to buy for the extras, but it's good to have them there.

Overall this was a purchase I was quite pleased with, and if you don't own the previous installments, you can get this, plus those, in a big ole boxed set set for a reasonable price. Not bad, and worth seeing!

As you can imagine, with Family Guy already spoofing the first two Star Wars movies, it was only obvious that they'd take on the final episode of the original trilogy.  It's a Trap focuses on Return of the Jedi.  The difference between It's a Trap and the other two is pretty simple: Seth MacFarlane is actually willing to tell you this one sucks.  It's SUPPOSED to be a joke, but there's some truth in it.  It isn't terrible, at least... but it's definitely …
