Best 'Family Guy' Musical Numbers
Since 1999, Family Guy has become more and more popular as its hilarity grows. Some of their most hilarious moments come from their extremely well-produced music.

The girls are under Kelly's complete control and have to ask his permission before they do anything, even use the restroom. Whenever they disobey, they are "punished" by Kelly, either verbally or physically. They are traine...

This weekend a minor 80’s gem turns 30 years old with little fanfare but plenty of positive memories, especially for young girls. Adventures in Babysitting is a lovely little 80’s nostalgia piece that, though some of its unintended politics haven’t aged well, the film’s silly little heart was always in the right place and that’s more than can be said about most 80’s teen comedies. Adventures in Babysitting casts the winning and refreshing young Elizabeth Shue who gets roped into babysitting for ...
