Review (contains spoilers):

Once again, they did a great job.  Great parody.  Excellent jokes.  Great moments. Calls out some of the ridiculous things that are in the actual films.

Parts are super inappropriate and some of the jokes are really out of date. But its Family Guy so that was expected.


Rating: 3 out of 5.
