Movie Details

Producer Seth MacFarlane wastes no time biting the hand that feeds him in this first episode Family Guy's fourth season. Mocking the fact that the series had been cancelled by Fox in 2002, only to be brought back by public demand, the season opener finds Peter Griffin casually rattling off a list of titles of unsuccessful TV series which Fox had inflicted on the public during that two-year hiatus. The episode itself was inspired by the brouhaha over Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, though in form and content it looks more like a Hitchcock thriller. While on their second honeymoon, Peter and Lois sneak a peak at the sequel to Gibson's "Jesus" film, The Passion of the Christ II: Crucify This. The couple ends up destroying the film, thus incurring the wrath of two movie-loving priests. Meanwhile back in Quahog, it is up to Brian and Stewie to dole out punishment when Chris is caught with booze at the high school dance. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
