The obvious historical reference is the much better Blazing Saddles (1974). And this really could be subtitled, "I Tried to Rip that Film Off." But it does have its moments. Seth MacFarlane is not a great actor, but the fact that he could get Charlize Theron to be in this is quite incredible. Along with Liam Neeson, however, he might just take any job that comes his way by judging his last few films. This film is high on sight gags, kind of like the cut-aways that MacFarlane has perfected on Family Guy. It's rude, it's crude and it's not for everyone, but it's Seth MacFarlane and you should know what you're getting into. I happen to like his juvenile sense of comedy, but he's just not quite up to par with this one.

This is the first time I saw a comedy with western theme. This is hilarious! Some good laugh and I do appreciate Seth MacFarlane this time. The funniest was "Mila Kunis" and the "I live inside her". People should watch this!

I managed to sit through ten juvenile, laughter devoid minutes of this half-hearted western spoof before switching it off. Perhaps it gets better after Charlize and Liam show up, but I wasn't willing to gamble another hour and a half of my life on finding out...

A Million Ways to Die, a Few Ways to Laugh

After the success of Ted, essentially Seth MacFarlane could choose any project he liked. The result is one of the rarest genre movies, the western comedy. In fact, if I were to ask the vast majority of people to name me a western comedy - other than this example, most would only come up with Blazing Saddles (Mel Brook's classic). That isn't to say there hasn't been other western comedies - just not successful ones. And I think its because the genre is just a tough sell.

What MacFarlane gives us, when it delivers, is a movie set in 1882, but with a mean streak of modern comedy. If you know MacFarlane's brand of humor, you should know what you're in for. He expounds upon all the things that are wrong with living in 1882 - rampant disease, the sudden (and oft life-ending) violence, the li...

A million ways to not be funny

Some movies are just not good but to call them bad might be a bit harsh. this is one of those movies.
basically its based in the wild west about a hapless sheep farmer who splits up with his woman and meets another woman who's husband is a killer. thats pretty much the whole story. she makes him realize is he better than he thought he was,
The humour is very childish very bad, if you have seen the tralier you have seen the best of this movie.
liam neeson plays a tiny part and he is good as the outlaw but you wish it was just him in a proper western instead of this as he brings a serious edge to it., i was very bored with this movie
the language is 2014 which is out of place but i guess thats part of the joke. the problem is its just not funny.
my verdict is its not worth watching, ju...

Great Premise, Weak Execution

There have been so many westerns over the years, and so many tropes associated with the genre that itís kind of hard to come up with something new to say within the frame of the time and place. Most modern westerns have to do something dark and brooding, like Lawless, or bizarre and silly like Rango or Django Unchained.

A Million Ways to Die in the West, Iím happy to say, is actually is a surprisingly fresh take on the classic western genre. The film focuses on the aforementioned western tropes, but through a lens of harsh reality. Macfarlane, who directs, writes and stars, pokes fun at the western genre full of heroes and cool gunfighters by showing us how much the west actually really sucked. Thatís the joke here: The west is cool in theory, but in reality it was full of dise...
