Review (contains spoilers):

I mean its about what you would expect.  The story is condensed into about an hour but with all the twists and turns of Peter telling the story.

The character replacements for the characters in the film are pretty funny. Some are incredibly accurate like Stewie as Darth Vader. And, of course, Peter and Lois are Han and Leia due to the story line of the other films. 

The parody was actually really hilarious.  A great parody version of the first movie.  And it did what all great parodies do… makes fun of the whole film, itself, the format of the show that is doing the parody…and basically everything else they could make fun of.

Worth the watch if you enjoy parody versions of popular films.


Rating: 3 out of 5.
