I recently had the opportunity to screen the upcoming DVD release of Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story, the very first full-length unrated DVD feature from creator Seth MacFarlane. Don't be concerned that this is a direct-to-video release. This is an opportunity for MacFarlane to give his fanbase an "edgier" version of Family Guy outside of network television. What's the story about? What begins as an offbeat premiere party for the new Family Guy film turns into the actual feature itself. The story centers around Stewie who doesn't quite feel a connection to his family, that is, until he sees what looks to be his father being interviewed on television. This discovery sets in motion a cross-country adventure from East Coast to West. Fans are going to be extremely proud of this release that certainly lives up to the expected level of humor and entertainment that have been present in the first four seasons of Family Guy. This feature which is actually a "film within a film" offers some of the most humerous moments seen in the franchise to date. All of the standard Family Guy elements are here including those outrageous flashbacks that include movie, television and commercial references. One of my favorite moments includes a brilliantly executed Ferris Beuller parody featuring Stewie racing the clock to make it back to the playground. There's even a SEXY PARTY and a INTERMISSION sequence that must be heard to be believed! Fans will also be surprised to hear their favorite characters utter the "F" word now and then -- though I am thankful that it was used sparingly to avoid ruining the effect. As a huge fan of Family Guy, I was very pleased with the effort that was put into this direct-to-video production. This DVD represents the very best of what can be done with this series. I had a lot of fun with this DVD. Too many laughs to count throughout its 88 minutes. Please don't hesitate to purchase this DVD.
