A Million Ways To Die In The West

Rated R / 1 hr 56 min / Comedy - Western

What is it about?

Seth MacFarlane plays a coward and sheep-farmer who is afraid of all of the different ways you can die in the western frontier. His girlfriend, Amanda Seyfried, breaks up with him, and he'll do anything to get her back. She left him for the slick mustachio'd Neil Patrick Harris. There is a newcomer to town in Charlize Theron who befriends the hapless sheep-farmer. He foolishly challenges his ex-girlfriend's new lover to a gunfight, but he is a terrible shot. Charlize offers to help train him how to shoot, but she's also hiding something. Liam Neeson is coming to town, and he's the deadliest criminal in the territory.

You will like it if...

You like Seth MacFarlane's style of humor. There are several hilarious moments throughout the movie, but there are more misses or near misses than in his previous effort Ted. Some of the best parts feature Sarah Silverman and her boyfriend in the movie Giovanni Ribisi. The main problem with this movie is that Seth MacFarlane is the main character. He is the worst actor in the film, and some parts of the movie suffer because of it. It's still a great comedy, but not as good as Ted was.
