The best Western comedy ever brought down by juvenile crudities

RELEASED IN 2014 and written & directed by Seth MacFarlane, "A Million Ways to Die in the West" stars MacFarlane as a yella sheep-rancher in an Old West town near Monument Valley. While grieving a breakup with his girlfriend (Amanda Seyfried) he starts a friendship with a hot blonde stranger in town (Charlize Theron), which isn't good because she's secretly the wife of a notorious gunslinger (Liam Neeson). Giovanni Ribisi plays the sheep-rancher's best friend and Sara Silverman his prostitute fiancé. Neil Patrick Harris plays the ex-girlfriend's new beau while Wes Studi appears in the third act.

If you can look beyond the vulgar potty humor (with WAY too many d-word jokes), this is arguably the best Western comedy, speaking as one who's seen most of 'em. The characters are memorable, the story is compelling and the dialogues are snappy, all with a quasi-realistic tone offset by absurd humor. I laughed throughout even while I winced or groaned at the puerile vulgarities. Theron is stunning and I'm not even a fan (she definitely got better with age). There are a few notable cameos with a great one involving a barn with a mysterious light; and another one at the very end. The Western locations are of the highest order.

Too bad it's nigh ruined by the constant obnoxious non-humor.

THE FILM RUNS 1 hours & 56 minutes and was shot in Santa Fe & Jemez Pueblo, New Mexico; Monument Valley, Utah/Arizona; Antonito, Colorado; and Mexican Water, Arizona. ADDITIONAL WRITERS: Alec Sulkin & Wellesley Wild.

GRADE: C

Good Western-Comedy!

Seth MacFarlane writes, produces, directs & stars in this 2014 western-comedy which co-stars Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Neil Patrick Harris, Giovanni Ribisi, Sarah Silverman and Liam Neeson. MacFarlane (Ted, Family Guy) plays Albert, a cowardly, sheepherder who gets dumped by his girlfriend, Louise (Seyfried). He's still in love with her until he meets and befriends, Anna (Theron), an attractive stranger who helps him build self-confidence and fire a pistol. Neeson (Taken) plays Clinch, an outlaw who turns out to be Anna's husband, Harris (How I Met Your Mother) plays Foy, Louise's new beau who taunts Albert, Ribisi (Ted) plays Edward, Albert's pal and Silverman plays prostitute, Ruth who is Edward's fiancée. This is a good film featuring a decent cast, silly and weird moments plus cameos. I recommend this and good luck getting the amusing, "Mustache" song out of your head.

A decent, if scattershot, comedy

'A Million Ways to Die in the West' certainly delivers on what the title promises! For a comedy, there's a lot of death - so much so that it's basically smashing the point over our heads. Set in 1882 Arizona, it's a story about Albert (MacFarlane), wallowing in his sheep farming life on the "frontier". It gets better when Anna (Theron) comes along, but there are complications when Clinch (Neeson) arrives. Basically, there's a few Western elements - plenty of shorts of New Mexico/Utah filling in for old Arizona, some tumbleweed and gun duels - but the way MacFarlane talks and acts makes it feel modern (and sometimes as if you're watching 'Family Guy').

There are some pretty funny/oddly short cameos - Christopher Lloyd, Ewan McGregor, Ryan Reynolds & Jamie Foxx - whether they add to the humour or detract is up for debate. There's really not much to the story, and it's pretty predictable, so it's surprising that it goes for almost two hours. Plenty of toilet humour, which can be a good thing in small does, but probably goes a little overboard. The main problem is that while there's plenty of good jokes, they're too much like a sitcom and are unable to sustain the plot and sometimes fall flat.

'A Million Ways to Die in the West' is not a bad follow-up to 'Ted', but you can't help but feel that MacFarlane bit off more than he could chew here, being star, writer, director and producer. Neil Patrick Harris just plays an unlikeable version of Barney, but the film's main saving grace is Theron, who's funny and charming, as well as Sarah Silverman & Giovanni Ribsi's relationship.
