    With a flair for the dramatic, Roger invites Stan to attend one of his acting classes. However, tempers flare when they both audition for the same role, leaving them to duke it out for top dog. Meanwhile, Steve and his friends get into a pillow fight when they try to plan the greatest slumber party ever. I thought this episode was superb. Both plot are equal in my opinion so I'm not sure which one I liked better. Of course, my score is lower because this episode could have done better. Some funny parts in this episode includes Hayley refering to Stan and Roger that they need to ***, Stan trying to act and fails at it, random shoot out, the flashbacks of the previous sleepover (I LOL'd the most when Barry peed in all of them), Steve's friends fighting, and a few more. Overall, a superb episode. 9/10moreless

    What I liked: Steve confronting that guy making fun of him and his friends for having slumber parties (There's a whole lot more than slumbering going on at those!), the montage of all the times they did the hand in the water trick (and how even when it wasn't on Barry, he still peed his pants), the character of Ronnie, amongst other things.



    I really liked Steve's plot, but to be honest, the main plot with Stan and Roger bored me. I especially did not care for them kissing each other over and over on stage. The main plot, to me, did not have any laughs. The laughs in this episode were primarily found in Steve's plot. So because of this my final grade is a low B-. Good episode but could have been bettermoreless

    The idea of Stan being bad at acting. Just makes perfect sense. He is so charismatic, but it makes sense that he would struggle and get nervous when going undercover.



    Usually the Roger characters are annoying, but the acting coach one was funny. It amazes me that they are able to perfectly create all of these personalities and get the dialogue down pat. If only Family Guy had that kind of quality writing these days, huh?



    The end got a little weird with them trying to one up each other sexually, but that's American Dad for you. Pushing the envelope is just another part of its greatness.moreless
