Not what I Expected

1. I thought it would be longer
2. No extra features not even a scene select
And 3. There are just some messed up moments

Should Have Been Better

I expected a whole lot more from the creator of family guy . He must have decided to take all of his reject cut scenes from family guy and put them all on one disc . There were one or two that were worth a short chuckle then after that your just bored waiting on it to get better. for dry comedy lovers this maybe good ,but as for me it was an waste of time.

Horrible

I Can't Believe I Subjected Myself to This…

I just sat there, thinking it would somehow get better than the first sketch. Nope.

As subpar as 'Family Guy' and its variations are, this is apparently what is left on the cutting room floor. This is bottom of the barrel, people. There's a reason these were initially put up on the internet for free. Let me repeat, one more time: these are unfunny compared to 'FAMILY GUY' STANDARDS.
"But why even rent this if you're so obviously not a fan of Seth MacFarlane's creation(s) in the first place," you ask? Sadly, I don't honestly know. Morbid curiosity, I suppose.

MacFarlane and company use this opportunity to let fly whatever disgusting, fowl, ignorant, bigoted thing they want. Crude elements are used here not for comedic effect, but instead used simply because they COULD. It's like there was a personal quota set by the team, who just kept on barreling through after it was met.

When the show's not jamming pointless crudity down your throat, the "jokes" presented are either stale, predictable, or a combination of those three elements. There's a sketch about three-fourths of the way in, where two ducks are supposedly watching "Meet the Parents" and commenting upon how unwatchable it is. Oh, the irony.

If it were ten years ago, when I was still in junior high, perhaps I'd've POSSIBLY found it SOMEWHAT amusing. My tastes are obviously a bit more discerning now, though, as this wasn't funny in the slightest.
Literally not one audible utterance of a laugh escaped my mouth during the entire viewing. Certainly I didn't sit stone-faced the WHOLE time; in fact, there were times where a fleeting smile was cracked! …two, to be precise. That's not a sarcastic estimate—I was actually so self aware of my lack of enjoyment that I was keeping track.

Bottom line: even if you are a fan of properties d'MacFarlane, skip this one. You'll thank me for saving you the 54 minutes of your life that you'd never see again. That was my sacrifice.
