Despite wanting to see it, I don't think it's worth p*ying for... But that's coming from someone who before finding out about free screenings would go to the cinema only once or twice a year for special occasions/movies. I'd use a voucher on it though, but it's hard to find spare time that I don't already have a (free) film/theatre trip scheduled!

I'm a Family Guy/ American Dad fan and when I heard the sweet dulcet tones of Patrick Stewart narrations I settled into my comfort zone. Yes, it was crude, racist and sexist but really I have seen and heard worse and the film is not to be taken too seriously...after all it is about a teddy bear which comes to life through a boys wish. For me the best bit was the surreal addition of Sam J Jones from the 80s Flash Gordon film. He was just acting like an old sports jock in this film but Flash Gordon brought back boyhood memories because he is the saviour of the universe.

Really this is essentially a buddy buddy film but with a talking teddy bear as one of the buddies. Quite enjoyable if you are a Family Guy/American Dad fan. Not sure if others would really enjoy.


PS. Wish I was at the earlier preview then I would have got a free copy of Flash Gordon dvd.
Do you still want the Flash Gordon DVD? We have one you are welcome to. Let me know where you'll be (Central London) for future screenings so we can arrange to pass it over.

I could of! but there was no preview near me!

The only time there was a local preview was when TDKR was playing the same day!

This film had its moments to smile but hardly a laugh-out-loud film for me and i would have been disappointed if I had pa*d for it. 5/10

Good film imo, I was looking forward to seeing it, and was pleasantly surprised to see it was being offered for free.

Typical Family Guy comedy, but yeah the chemistry between leads was good, and i really enjoyed the film!

Home nice and early cos they started the film at 6:05 which was fine by us as we were already there!

Not sure what all the people who dribbled in until about 6:40 thought though.

Enjoyed it just as much the second time. A good laugh!

Loved this film so much. Big fan of Family Guy so was right up my street. Don't think it would be everyone's cup of tea but I personally would watch it again! 9/10
