From the man that makes a living from fart jokes, come a Western comedy that actually takes place in the old west. From the opening credits until the closing credits, this film is truly a comedy disguised as a western. There is no modern technology and the sets were so realistic that they might have filmed in a historical ghost town instead of a hollywood soundstage. That being said, the comedy within the movie was not a traditional Western.
Seth MacFarlane, the guy that brought you Family Guy and Ted, is back in the new comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West. Throughout the film, Albert (MacFarlane) finds reasons to tell you different ways that it was possible to die in the wild west. It seems that even going to the bathroom was a possible way to die. Even with all of the death that surrounds our protagonist, the true danger comes from one place, a love triangle.
There were a few cameos within the film and those that know me well will immediately be able to tell the moment I jumped in excitement. I must confess, I lied a little above when I said there was no modern technology, however I hope you forgive me. If you need a good laugh, this film is going to be a good choice for you. The day I saw A Million Ways to Die in the West I had just received bad news about something related to work. By the time I left the movie theater, I had been laughing so hard that I forgot why I was upset.
