A Million Ways To Die In The West Loses The Gun Fight

Neil Patrick Harris and Seth MacFarlane in A Million Ways To Die In The West

I love Seth MacFarlane.   I love Family Guy. I loved Ted.  I was so-so about  A Million Ways To Die In The West.  This new comedic parody had all the makings of becoming one of those fun classics like Blazing Saddles ( now that was an excellent, funny western spoof).

MacFarlane’s western  had lots of funny moments, but when weaved together, the funny turned into a yawn.  There were tired old predictable scenes.  It would have been better if this were a 30 minute western laugh montage ( using the movie’s best moments) on TV.

MacFarlane is a good actor that rises above the script and I can believe have some great performances for him the future with  screenplays and perhaps, another Director.

Kudos to a great cast , who each had their stand out moments, especially Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman and Giovani Ribisi.

The movie is all about dying in the Old West, well , it sure died on the big screen.
