Seth MacFarlane stretches the boundaries of comedy and propriety as writer, producer, director, and actor in A Million Ways to Die in the West. After Albert (MacFarlane) backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend (Amanda Seyfried) leaves him for another man (Neil Patrick Harris). When a mysterious and beautiful woman (Charlize Theron) rides into town, she helps him find his courage as they begin to fall in love. But when her notorious outlaw husband (Liam Neeson) arrives seeking revenge, Albert must put his newfound courage to the test. Also starring Giovanni Ribisi and Sarah Silverman, the hilarious all-star cast delivers an offbeat mix of outrageous humor and quick wit. Critics say, “You’ll die laughing!” (-Mara Reinstein, US WEEKLY)
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: While it offers a few laughs and boasts a talented cast, Seth MacFarlane's overlong, aimless A Million Ways to Die in the West is a disappointingly scattershot affair.

Overly crude jokes and gross-out humor drag comedy down.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that A Million Ways to Die in the West is a raunchy comedy from star-director-producer Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, Ted) that's guaranteed to appeal to teens, despite (or, frankly, because of) the extremely crude content. There's near-constant profanity, including crass terms for sex, genitalia, and sexual positions (as well as "f--k," "s--t," and all the other usual suspects). Although there's only one nude scene (a man's behind), there are tons of references to sex -- including prostitution, oral sex, and virginity -- throughout the movie. Characters drink, smoke, and do drugs (with some consequences shown for the latter). And as the title suggests, violence in the Wild West is the overarching theme of the story, so there are deaths due to gun and knife violence, random animal attacks, natural disasters, and more. Despite all of this, the movie does give its characters some redeeming qualities, and themes of friendship, real love, and believing in yourself run through the film.
