Alternate Versions

When this aired as two-part episode on Fox a line was changed to eliminate a masturbation joke.

Otherwise you might rip your dick off." to "Wow, you're a hard guy to get compliment from!". See more »

Did they change the writers?
4 January 2010 | by slamko-1See all my reviews

I have seen virtually every episode of family guy including blue harvest, all which are very funny and cause you to laugh. However in this movie, I had only found 3 lines that caused me to laugh, the rest was just filler that made no sense.

If you have not seen the original star wars movie you will be completely lost and most likely cause you to never watch family guy again as the person that I watched "Something, Something, Something Dark Side" with had stated after she had wasted just over 54 min of her life that she will never get back.

If you have nothing else to watch give it a go, hopefully you will enjoy it more than myself.
