The major sub-plot circles around the youngest Griffin, Stewie, who has a near-death experience at a pool when a lifeguard chair falls on him, but he survives. After having a vision of being in Hell, he decides to change his ways, but this doesn't last long. While watching television, he and Brian spot a man that looks like Stewie. Brian is convinced that he is Stewie's real father, until Stewie learns that the man is actually himself as an adult, taking a vacation from his own time period. Baby Stewie visits thirty years later to discover that his adult self, going by the name Stu, is a single blue-collar middle-aged virgin working at a Circuit City-type store. Meanwhile, Peter and Lois are trying to teach their two older kids, Meg and Chris, to date. In the future, Chris, who hasn't changed much, is working as a cop and is married to a foul-mouthed hustler named Vanessa. Meg is now called Ron, since she had a sex-change after college. Written by
According to the DVD commentary there was an episode called "Queer as Stewie" where Stewie has a near-death experience and comes out of the closet, but when Fox canceled Family Guy in 2002, the idea was scrapped. Eventually, the idea became the first part of the movie, with the latter part of the plot removed. Also, "Stewie B. Goode" was originally going to be one episode, but the story was thought to be too long for half an hour and was changed into a DVD movie. See more »

I am a fan of the series, although I would not consider myself a huge fan. I was lucky enough to see this movie before it came out and was not disappointed. Yes, there is fouler language than usual, but it made the movie that much funnier. The use of the F word was sprinkled throughout but it was always used in the right places and only for comedic value, not just to have it in there. There are some classic quotes that will enter the English language regularly I'm sure. They referenced some movies such as Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, etc. I have to admit my favorite was the scene from Ferris Bueller's day off. The movie continued to include most of the characters from the series, even the minute ones that only show themselves here and there. The story was complete, and interesting and honestly kept you laughing the whole time. There was enough story to keep you interested and it was not choppy. It really ran smoothly and didn't make you wonder why something was happening. It truly ran like a longer episode. This is a must not miss for anyone who watches the series and thinks that it is amusing!
