The butt review

Family guy Star Wars sequal has some rude language like f*ck used regularly and sh*t, and d*ck some animated action.
age 14+

Only so-so

so-so, raunchy for 14+ It has some pretty strong language "f--k" "s--t" and "d--k" it parody's the Episode V of Star wars, there is some social drinking, It is Iffy for 14+ the violence is also pretty harmless, but some kids may not understand the humor of the show, It was fair, it could never beat Blue Harvest though, My Rating R: for language, because it said fu-k 4 times,

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (26 ):

This movie veers from hilarious to stupid and back again in milliseconds. The pop culture references are often very funny, though they sometimes distract from the story itself. Though the filmmakers clearly had fun finding silly ways to retell the Empire story, they take a light hand in making fun of the original's earnestness. The Family Guy series in general is often brave in tackling subjects many would deem off limits, but the result is often more harsh than clever and the intention seems more to shock than to critique.
