Just as fun as the others
I am reviewing this, like I did with Partial Terms of Endearment, from a free rental I received before street date through my employer. Perhaps the lone perk of working in a video store!
'It's a Trap' opens with your typical Star Wars style scroll in which Seth admits that he really didn't want to do this one, but with the success of the previous two Fox had demanded it. He does ask for viewers to suspend their expectations and promises a better product on their next venture, however I think this is largely tongue-in-cheek because this one was every bit as enjoyable as Blue Harvest, and in my opinion better than Something, Something. A few gags do drag a bit too long, and seem like they are just filler, but the laughs more than make up for the lags.
Return of the Jedi is arguably the easiest of the Star Wars films to pick apart, and they do a great job with it. I didn't feel that the material was tired. It actually had some great moments. True fans of the show will enjoy it.
FUNNY ending to the funny trio.
I don't understand the negative reviews to this movie. It is every single bit as good as the first two, people are just being analytical for the sake of trying to stand apart.
I won't get into lengthy reviews, because I'm sure people already have.
Just watch it. It stays true to the feeling of the first two, and is consistently funny. American Dad fans will be in for a treat, as will people who remember the Ostrich and Angela. Great points are made, and Quag-3PO will make you laugh your *** off.
4/5 only because the Sarlaac Pit staring scene went on for way too long.
No, not the internet kind of trap, but yet another Family Guy spoof of the Star Wars saga, now available on exciting blu ray! Does it hold up? In a word, yes. It's not as good as Blue Harvest or Something, Something, Something Dark Side, but it's quite watchable and entertaining.
The story begins with our heroes sitting around watching TV. The lights go out, Stewie says, "Does this mean we're gonna do Jedi?" and Peter says, "Might as well get this over with." From there we go to the opening crawl, wherein it's revealed, possibly accurately, that the Family Guy people didn't want to do this one. We go from there to the usual set of sight gags and familiar characters in new roles, including appearances by Roger, Klaus, Rallo and Tim the Bear. You get Meg in the expected spot, though the addition of someone very unexpected as the Rancor was quite fun.
There's several times I laughed out loud, including the Emperor's efforts to get Luke angry by dissing on Seth Green, or Peter/Han's efforts to make the movie "darker". While overall it wasn't quite as good as the other ones, or as funny as the TV series at its best, it was still very good and I feel happy that I bought it.
Extras include a digital copy that I was able to put onto my computer, but wasn't able to get it onto my phone using the PocketBlu feature. I spent several frustrating minutes trying before I gave up. There's also the expected commentary, a drawing lesson, "sock puppet" stuff and more! It's not something you'll really be likely to buy for the extras, but it's good to have them there.
Overall this was a purchase I was quite pleased with, and if you don't own the previous installments, you can get this, plus those, in a big ole boxed set set for a reasonable price. Not bad, and worth seeing!
