I can't beat the griffin?

I know I suck, but I don't know what to do. I've tried 3 times. Any advice? I try to make the ally launch me, but he keeps missing, and then the swoops kill me.

My person had daggers and archery, I'm not sure if that's the same for everyone.

Wait until his attention is diverted. Grab him and start stabbing him as well.

We all had daggers + bow & arrow...

As for beating the Griffin, take Phils advice and: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aib4TMTZyvE

I'm sorry, I can't click the link at the moment since I'm on my phone...(but thanks for providing it, I'll watch it when I can :)

What do you mean when its attention is diverted? It's hard to get it to come down.

Use fire. When your weapons get fire-enchanted by Alexandra - the manly mage with a girl's name - snipe the Griffin's wings. Or jump on it's back and attack the wings. You can't climb on the wings, but you can attack the wings at the joint on the back - the brown feathery part of the back.

Then when it's down, attack the head.
You too....shall come to understand....Fear...as I do.

When the Griffin lands jump up on its front leg and climb up and start hitting its wings ..the fight will be over in probably 40 seconds.

Use the two rules of MH.
Lotion, I use that.

1. Don't get hit.
2. Hit it 'til it dies.

Thanks, I'll try this again tomorrow.

Also, is there a way to turn off the cut scenes from the party members?

Yep. You can switch it off at the Options menu.
