A Million Ways To Die In The West

When in 2012, Seth MacFarlane, the mastermind behind our favorite cartoon comedies aired on FOX such as Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show, used all of his Peter Griffin know-hows to create a movie called Ted. Yes, it's the one that we can think of it as Stewie and his teddy bear Rupert...30 years later. Now, Seth MacFarlane's back and once again, further inspirations for some cutaway gags for next season's Family Guy would be necessary to make this offbeat western movie that tells us one question...Just how the wild west was wrong?

A Million Ways To Die In The West

Nothing as you expect to be in this offbeat wild west comedy movie made by the mastermind that brought you your favorite cartoon comedies as well as the movie about a foul-mouthed teddy bear two years ago. A Million Ways To Die In The West is all about bravery in all the wrong barrels while still delivers some potty-mouthed crude humor in true Seth MacFarlane fashion, something that you would expect from a certain Family Guy cutaway gag anytime soon.

Seth plays as a farmer named Albert. When Albert ran away from a gunfight, his girlfriend dumped him for another man. Suddenly, a mysterious and beautiful woman (played by Charlize Theron) approaches, Albert's life has changed forever and they fell in love. However, when a notorious criminal (played by Liam Neeson), who happens to be her husband, arrives unexpectedly and seeking vengeance, can Albert brave enough for the challenge or get killed on the wild west for his cowardliness?

Even though it's set on a Wild West age of America, A Million Ways To Die In The West is just plain offbeat for a comedy movie and in true Seth MacFarlane fashion, there's always random bits of gags you might spot especially when Albert's having a chat with the Indians. Is there something from the film that is worth a cutaway gag for Family Guy? I think so but even though it's all about crude humor on how the west was wrong, it seems a bit too corny for me, you know what I mean? It has the jokes, it has the gags, and it has Family Guy inspiration from it but I'm afraid I'm going to be as brain-dead as a...well, brain-dead horse for its catastrophic corniness.

Despite being too corny, A Million Ways To Die In The West is not a bad movie if you're in a mood to flex your funny bones with your mates.

My score? A 2.8 out of 5.
