Since I have no TV set, watching series requires much more effort than watching films, and this is probably the only reason that I have not been exposed to Family Guy more than I have. Sure, I have seen stray episodes occasionally, but I cannot say that I have given the series a decent chance.

I must say that I like most of what I see. The humour is somewhat less politically correct than in The Simpsons, for instance, but that only makes it better. Otherwise, it is fairly similar in that it targets the nuclear family and life of ordinary people in America.

Another thing I love with this film is the brief but significant cuts to scenes relevant to the current events, but very closely tied to the story itself. It is an original device not used often, and here it is performed very neatly indeed. I am no Family Guy expert, but I would like to recommend the film even to those who have not seen a single episode of the series. If the film is representative or not, I cannot tell, but I enjoyed immensely.
