‘A Million Ways To Die In The West': Zillions Of Reasons You’ll Crack Up

Fri, May 30, 2014 10:07am EST by 3 Comments

Seth MacFarlane’s spoof comedy, ‘A Million Ways To Die In The West’ is a must-see. It’s hilariously inappropriate, over-the-top and filled with tons of ‘what was he thinking?’ moments — and that’s what makes it so ridiculously funny.

Leave it up to Seth MacFarlane to create a crude movie centered around The Frontier. Just when you thought old Westerns couldn’t go beyond gun fights and tumbleweeds, Seth teams up with Charlize TheronNeil Patrick HarrisLiam NeesonAmanda Seyfried and Sarah Silverman for A Million Ways To Die In The West. Read on for the top reasons you should run to the theaters to get your laugh on. Plus, click to WATCH the trailer!

‘A Million Ways To Die In The West’ Review — You’ll Laugh Out Loud

You know when you’re watching a movie and you think, “Oh my gosh, could you imagine if this person actually got hit by a bus?” (a la Mean Girls) or “It would be so completely ridiculous if the most random actor ever showed up for a cameo for no reason whatsoever, and then was just killed off also for no reason whatsoever.”

Well, in A Million Ways To Die In The West, that all pretty much happens. And it works.

The A-List Cast Is Quite The Ensemble

Seth MacFarlane is a one-man-show (he produced, wrote, directed and stars in the movie), but he’s joined by an incredible A-list cast. Charlize TheronNeil Patrick HarrisLiam NeesonAmanda Seyfried and Sarah Silverman all have big roles in the film and they all show off their comedic chops.

If you thought that Liam couldn’t work in a satirical comedy that’s more inappropriate than Family Guy, you’re wrong. And that shouldn’t be a surprise — Mr. Neeson is amazing in everything he does. Spoiler alert: he plays the big, bag guy in town. (Watch out Taken kidnappers.)

No surprise here. Sarah is hilarious and once again, she has no qualms about doing anything. I mean anything. She plays a religious “virgin” prostitute who won’t have sex with her husband (Giovanni Ribisi) so you can put two-and-two together — she has a ton of wild sex with everyone…but her husband.

Amanda Seyfried is surprisingly hilarious, as the beautiful Louise, who’s causing a fight between Neil Patrick Harris and Seth MacFarlane’s characters, and she even makes fun of herself — Charlize calls her out for having huge eyeballs, and she goes along with it.

Neil Patrick Harris’ One-Liners Are Ahhh-mazing

Speaking of the stellar cast, someone can just give NPH an Oscar now.

Okay, I kid, I kid.

No one in this movie deserves any sort of awards, unless you’re gifting Neil with the best on-screen mustache medal or the best one-liners the silver screen has seen in quite some time.

Neil plays Foy who is the arch-nemisis of Albert (Seth) because he has Louise (Amanda) — Albert’s ex — tied around his finger, and his tongue. The two make out in front of the saloons, and in front of the lovelorn Albie, and the guys go head-to-head in one of the grossest gun fights you’ve ever seen. And not because of battle wounds. Just see the movie and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Charlize Theron & Seth MacFarlane Make An Awesome Couple

I was shocked when I heard that Charlize was cast in the lead female role, but she works it!

Charlize plays Clinch Leatherwood’s (Liam) wife who’s canoodling around town with Albert. And she’s a serious badass. She knows how to handle a gun — and her men.

The on-screen couple is so convincing that I almost forgot they weren’t dating in real life. And I kinda sorta wish they were. (Sorry, Sean Penn!)

The Cameos Make You Say ‘WTF’

As if the cast isn’t already good enough, the cameos are fantastic.

I don’t want to give anything away, but let’s just say that my heart is broken because a major heartthrob shows up for less than a second (for no apparent reason) and is then shot right in the heart. RIP, you beautiful soul.

But even funnier than that is the most random scene I think I’ve seen, which pays homage to a classic movie set in a completely different decade. I mean, it doesn’t even make sense. And that’s why it’s so great. Again, see the movie, and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

A Million Ways To Die In The West hits theaters on May 30.

HollywoodLifers, let me know if you’re going to see A Million Ways To Die In The West!

But be warned: it’s a crazy, weird movie and many moments will have you thinking, “What am I watching?” All in all, if you like Seth MacFarlane’s comedy, you’re going to like this.

Seth, I could kick John Stewart’s a** any day of the week. I think that he is a pompous butthole and he believes that no one could be better than him. Oh, by the way, I would love the oppurtunity to prove my self.
