"A Million Ways to Die in the West" shovels jokes, sight gags, riffs on old Westerns, and crude humor as fast as it can, figuring everything will be funny to someone in the audience. It's a good bet, and this Western comedy works, although the humor is all over the map, not PC, and sometimes pretty gross. This reviewer saw the movie with an audience that laughed out loud at some of the jokes and sight gags, and groaned at some of the cruder humor.

Seth MacFarlane stars as sheep farmer Albert Starks, a nice guy who hates the old West and who as the movie opens gets dumped by his girlfriend Louise (Amanda Seyfried) after he chickens out of a gun fight. Louise takes up with the insufferable Foy (Neil Patrick Harris) who runs the local moustachery. The lonely Albert runs into Anna (Charlize Theron), the runaway wife of mean gunfighter Clinch Leatherwood (Liam Neeson), who takes him under her wing and trains him to fight the inevitable duels, first against Foy and then against Clinch.

The opening segments of the movie feature a lot of modern breakup humor, nicely done by Albert and his best friends Edward (Giovanni Ribisi) and Ruth (an hilarious Sarah Silverman as a prostitute). The movie really picks up steam as it drops into a more traditional western storyline, complete with barn dances, gunfights, barroom brawls, Indians, chases on horseback, and a predictable but enjoyable romance. There are a ton of cameos and the magnificent scenery is right out of a John Ford Western. Recommended as good entertainment.

Some haterade going around - but view with confidence; Seth Macfarlane and crew are dialed in and rock-solid in this screwball western. Sarah Silverman is priceless as Ruth, the hooker with a heart of gold. Liam Neeson as the sociopathic gang leader plays it deadly straight and Macfarlanes' character, our protagonist seems at risk for real. Connecting the foils is Charlize Theron, strong as one could hope for as a dramatic and comedic slugger.
A terrific cast, score, and set make this a high-budget comedy that will pay off. If you like "Family Guy" you will love this flick... if you can't stand that show, give this a pass. But ignore the critics who claim Blazing Saddles was 10 times better; that was slapsick, and so is this. There is good reason 2 A-listers volunteered for this frontier trek. There are brassy, bawdy, and genuinely witty moments throughout the film - the good time don't just end at the trailer. * ( I went with 2 men and 2 women- everyone enjoyed it) *

Poor acting, poor plot, and not funny. I love comedies and westerns, and I really wanted to like this movie. I think I laughed twice. I rented this through Amazon instant video and a third of the way through I almost emailed them requesting my money back. This seemed to be some known actors boosting the publics interest to watch a movie that Hollywood is taking a chance on. The trailer has the funniest parts, the rest of the movie is a complete fail.

Do not buy this if you do not have a sense of humor or enjoy laughing. This was HILARIOUS! Funniest movie I have seen in a long time. It reminds me of something Mel Brooks would do, but in *this* day and time, with more liberties and looser, more daring scenes and language. It's not a family movie, certainly not for kids. We rented this first and after seeing decided we had to own it. This could double as an ab workout video because of all the belly laughing.

I really enjoyed this movie but it is NOT for anyone who is easily offended. If you know much about Seth McFarlane, you should know what you are in for. If Family Guy is not for you, then do not bother to watch this movie.
I liked it!

My husband and I were concerned that this was the type of movie in which all the funny parts were in the previews... We were wrong! We laughed for the majority of the movie! I would definitely recommend! The humor is a dirtier humor, so if you don't like that you probably won't appreciate this film. I will definitely be purchasing this to add to our collection, though!

Good movie. You have to be a MacFarlane fan to really enjoy it. Be advised it may make you queazy. I really enjoy family guy and his other show, so naturally, I expected the moon. Overall a good watch if you are a fan. Again, be cautious if you are not familiar with his stuff.

... exactly that. If you went into this movie with any expectation other than stupid humor with a massive cast, then you don't know Seth MacFarlane.

As the weather turns, my friends and I decided to stay in a rent this instead of going to the theater. With a few cocktails in hand, this movie certainly fit the bill. The plot is obviously weak, but sound enough to carry you through the humor. We laughed the entire way through and when it ended, we all agreed this movie fit the bill for the night we were wanting to have.

Full of slapstick humor, dirty jokes, and a lot of completely random and irrelevant celebrity cameos (Doc Brown, Mr Belding, Ewan Mcgregor, etc), the only thing that was off about this movie is I expected it to have more death in it like Final Destination. With a title like 'A Million ways to die in the west' you have already witnessed all the like 5 death scenes if you watched the trailers.

Regardless, it's a good slapstick movie with humor a lot like Ted or Family Guy, but not nearly as good of a plot as Ted. It will keep you laughing if you're in the right mood and are among friends with a drink in your hand.
