Family Guy: Blue Harvest
Now I’m not a Family Guy fan, in fact other that promo adverts on TV, I’ve never actually seen Family Guy. Luckily the DVD has an intro to the Family Guy world, at it does look quite funny, if in a somewhat slightly rude context.
Family Guy however was not what drew me to this particular DVD, more so it was the fact that this 45 minute special was a parody of Star Wars. How could I not watch it?
To say it is a flawless parody would be giving it a tad too much praise, but it got all the main parts of the plot and littered the movie with ample pop-culture references and made a lot of fun out of the obvious Star Wars plot holes.
Probably the most annoying thing was making Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi into a dirty old man. This may be in line with some of the more sexual innuendos of the show, but stood starkly out of place in a Star Wars parody.
Other than that the humour came thick and fast, with a few additions to the plot – such as the sofa – Blue Harvest almost makes it into the cult classic status.
A great 45 minutes of light hearted fun for fans of the original Lucas masterpiece.
