Storyline Heading
After Albert backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend leaves him for another man. When a mysterious and beautiful woman rides into town, she helps him find his courage and they begin to fall in love. But when her husband, a notorious outlaw, arrives seeking revenge, the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
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.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full 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 Today Full 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.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
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.

NY Post Full 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 GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

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.
