Comedy Western - Like director Seth MacFarlane's previous film Ted, this
western comedy is very crude, raunchy, and potentially offensive,
aimed primarily at young
adult males. He also has the lead role here, and fans of Charlize
Theron will be pleased with this light change of pace for her. Liam
Neeson has a very small role. Nonstop language, crude and raunchy
humor, and some violence make this definitely not for kids.
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words; well over 30 S-words; 5 GD's; many others. SEX/NUDITY: Sex and unrelated nudity. VIOLENCE: Shootings, fights, killings with blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol, tobacco, marijuana. ACTION: One big fight; an explosion. COMEDY: Banter, toilet humor, sex humor, race humor, sight gags.
Roger EbertFull Review Poor There were times where I was convinced that he was going for a purposefully constructed aesthetic like an old-fashioned Western and times where I think he was just being lazy.
USA TodayFull Review Good A Western with a contemporary sensibility and dialogue that sounds markedly modern, A Million Ways to Die in the West is quintessential MacFarlane, at once silly and witty, juvenile and clever.
NY PostFull Review Very Good I laughed more at Seth MacFarlane's sendup of '60s Westerns than I did at all the other comedies I've seen this year, combined.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 32 moviegoers:
Unfortunately, this movie didn't attract much of an audience so we weren't able to collect very many reviews. Also unfortunate is that the reviews are very mixed, which makes them less useful. About half really enjoyed "A Million Ways to Die in the West," but most of the remaining half only felt it was an "average" movie, at best. The young males this movie is primarily targeted at, rated it very high.
