Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Stewie marry his old flame Olivia; Peter makes a chick flicks

    Stewie ties the knot with his old flame Olivia, but their relationship quickly turns, and becomes normal dull marriage. It all escalates when they go on a double date with Brian and Jillian. Meanwhile, Lois introduces Peter to chick flicks, so he decides to make his own movie with a plot based on every chick movie ever. An improvement over Prick your ears. However, Stewie's plot was getting a little boring after awhile and the fighting were not helping either. There were funny moments in the plot like Stewie trying to ask Olivia by treating her in a bad way. Quagmire's cameo when Brian shows Stewie about women, Cherriots cutaway, and 2-4 more. So yeah Peter's subplot was funnier and no problems at all. I laughed at Peter's emotional burst at the end of the movie, Peter watching all the chick flicks (and he said "before that, I used to cried in my penis, but now I cried in my...forgot what it is), and the chick flick which was received negatively. Overall, this episode was superb but the writers could have use a bit more humor. 9/10moreless
  • Brian's plot is boring ONCE AGAIN, but Peter's plot was okay

    Stewie ties the knot with his old flame Olivia, but their relationship quickly turns, and becomes normal dull marriage. It all escalates when they go on a double date with Brian and Jillian. Meanwhile, Lois introduces Peter to chick flicks, so he decides to make his own movie with a plot based on every chick movie ever.

    Brian's plot is boring ONCE AGAIN, but Peter's plot was okay, the chick flick movie was awesome

  • Peter decides to make a chick flick after Lois introduces chick flicks to him

    I thought that this was an excellent episode of "Family Guy" and it made me laugh hard for the most part. I liked Peter's plot more than Stewie's plot though. The Stewie/Olivia plot was great but it wasn't exactly what I would call the best. My score was a just a tad low because Stewie and Olivia's arguments was a little annoying. The ending of the Stewie plot wasn't that great to me either when Stewie burned the cardboard house with Olivia and that other guy in there. So if this episode only focused on Stewie's plot, it probably would've gotten an 8.5 from me. Peter's plot is what what my score a 9.5. It's just a tad low because of Stewie's plot. "The Mayor of Comedy" cutaway was hilarious. I also thought that the "Cheetos" cutaway was hilarious. Lois introducing Peter a chick flick was absolutely hilarious especially when Peter was crying through the chick flick and ended up liking it. Peter deciding to make his own chick flick was also hilarious. It was hilarious when Peter was forcing Joe to stand up because Joe's character stands up and Joe can't because he is obviously handicapped and then Peter tazes Joe off his wheelchair. Peter's chick flick really made me laugh so hard and it was also hilarious when everyone hated Peter's chick flick. Joe's line "That was the worst crap I have ever seen" also made me laugh hard. Overall, the Stewie/Olivia plot is great but Peter's plot made me laugh the hardest. 9.5/10moreless
  • An example of what Family guy is all about: Offensively funny humor

    In this episode Stewie hates, dates, marries, and murders his former dancing partner Olivia (previously in "From Method to Madness") while Peter discovers, and then makes, a chick flick.

    Good: Plot is original, Subplot is great satire, Peter's flim is so terrible it's hilarious, Manatee Jokes are actually decent, plot jokes are funny

    Bad: Stewie's convo with the dude about the steak is too long and unfunny, the last part about Stewie's sexuality is just awkward

    Overall: Excluding for a couple of worn-out and awkward moments with Stewie, this is a great episode both for satire as well as for random humor. Definitly recommended. 8.5/10moreless
  • Another fine episode

    Alec Sulkin and Wellesly Wild do it again, normally see good stuff from these guys. Well, I pretty much enjoyed the entire episode, much like last week. The scene with Olivia and Stewie "people watching" was great, as was the Lion attacking the robot that followed. Chester Cheetah snorting the cheese puffs as if it were cocaine while listening to Rush was friggin hilarious. As a fan of arcade games, I loved the Q*Bert reference. Also, I am really liking these call backs, ala Brian showing his unconscious hatred towards the blacks. I cant decide line from Peter I liked better "She died from an angry Hymen", or "Cry from my Penis", both were gold. Overall, an excellent episode, and according to Zac Moncrief, the director of the next episode, its supposed to be even better, so here's hoping!moreless
