The butt review

Movie has a lot of cussing with f*ck, b*tch, sh*t, crap, d*ck,h*ll. Movie has some action and crude humor.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (25 ):

The complete fearless abandon of this show makes it amusing, if crude, overall, and it definitely has some clever ideas. During the opening crawl of FAMILY GUY: IT'S A TRAP!, an unseen narrator explains that the Family Guy creators were pretty much forced into this sequel, and that their hearts weren't in it; the narrator asks if we could lower our expectations just a bit. At the end, the characters make fun of the lowbrow humor of the show, and the talent receives a gentle ribbing.

Despite all these safety features, It's a Trap really does feel like a last-minute, half-hearted attempt, with only the most sporadic jokes working at all. It certainly doesn't manage to skewer Return of the Jedi very well (the fiercest barb is reserved for Leia's braided hair), and indeed sticks very close to many of the images and lines of dialogue from that 1983 original.
