A Million Ways To Die In The West (2014)


Albert Stack (Seth MacFarlane) is a farmer who, lets say, is a pussy. He is not a fighter and in the old west you had to be able to survive and you just couldn't do it being a pussy. Now Albert is in town and Charlie Blanche (Brett Rickaby) wants the money that Albert owes him. Well the two square off for a gun fight, but Albert chickens out. Now Albert does everything including making funny crude gestures to Charlie, but Charlie still shoots Albert in the leg.

Albert goes off with his girlfriend Louise (Amanda Seyfried) for a picnic. While lounging and enjoying himself Louise tells Albert that she wants to dump him, even after Albert professes his love for her. Nope, not having none of it, Louise is moving on.

A woman by the name of Anna (Charlize Theron) arrives in town and Albert works up enough nerve to talk to her. Anna sees that Albert is harmless and the two kind of hit it off, okay,they have a kiss. Now this brings Anna's husband Clinch Leatherwood (Liam Neeson) to town to find the man who has been kissing his wife. Well that's about it. If you want to watch the rest of the movie your stupider than you look. This is supposed to be some sort of comedy but it doesn't even come close to measuring up to say "Blazing Saddles". This is not worth the time or the effort to put your shoes on to go see it. In these troubling financial times I'm sure you can find something to do with your money and this isn't it. I wouldn't even wait to see it on DVD. I wouldn't even wait to see it on TV.

Director Seth MacFarlane has dropped the ball. The cast is mediocre at best and the story line makes you want to gag rather than laugh. Let this movie go on by and have a nice day.
