The Wild Wild West has never looked wilder or, er, deadlier (and funnier) than in Seth MacFarlane’s “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” I’m not the only one who keeps imagining Brian the dog and other “Family Guy” characters whenever MacFarlane is saying something onscreen, am I? Also, glad to see MacFarlane still manages to dump on poor Mila Kunis even in a movie where she doesn’t appear. (Or does she?)
Anyways, the movie looks funny as hell, too, which never hurts, I guess.
Seth MacFarlane directs, produces, co-writes and plays the role of the cowardly sheep farmer Albert in A Million Ways to Die in the West. 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.
Starring Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, Liam Neeson, Giovanni Ribisi, and Neil Patrick Harris.
The fit hits the shan this May 30th.
