A Million Ways to Die in the West
Stars: Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried
This Western directed by and starring Seth MacFarlane is being touted as the heir apparent of Blazing Saddles. And it literally does explore a gazillion ways to die, albeit not all by gunshots. There are so many cringe-worthy scenes that your face muscles will get quite the workout.
Best line: “People die at the fair.” That’s what Albert (MacFarlane) says to Anna (Charlize Theron), the hot new woman in town he has a crush on.
People don’t just die in this Western comedy (yes, it’s a comedy, and you will laugh), they die spectacularly. And it’s bone-crushingly funny. –p.d. lee
