November 20, 2019
Overall, A Million Ways to Die in the West is entertaining and funny, and it is great to see [Seth] MacFarlane in a live-action role.
March 22, 2019
The best stuff is when McFarlane plays up the rag-tangled daftness of the genre, which is perhaps why comparisons to Mel Brooks may not be entirely defunct.

There are hilarious things within A Million Ways to Die in the West, there are cringe-worthy things, and there are many elements in between.
November 1, 2018
Despite all of the obvious flaws, I did find myself caught up thanks to MacFarlane and Theron's chemistry, and there were just enough genuine laughs to keep me entertained.
October 23, 2018
[McFarlane] is trying to push boundaries that most politically correct comedies and comedians stampeded away from years ago. For me, that is how the West is truly won.

The movie has more respect and affection for the Old West (and old western movies) than I imagined it could. The Oscar stint and Ted remain unforgiven, but I'm willing to look at whatever MacFarlane does next.

MacFarlane's aim is true when it comes to the pic's continuous meta-commentary.
November 13, 2014
Although hardly 'Blazing Saddles,' the movie is pretty funny when it depicts the Old West as a place of such 'general depressing awfulness' it can sink a person into 'a disgusting, awful, dirty cesspool of despair.'

Seth MacFarlane is tedious, but Charlize Theron saves the day.
July 7, 2014
There's no depth to what you see on screen here: MacFarlane is simply doing what he does best; delivering cheap laughs as he continues to try and push the boundaries.
June 11, 2014
Uneven yes, funny at times, yes, often uproariously so.
June 7, 2014
Theron's endearing rapport with MacFarlane the actor helps smooth over whenever MacFarlane the writer/director goes a little overboard with his penchant for toilet humor.
June 5, 2014
Humour is, of course deeply personal, some people will enjoy this more, but few would disagree that McFarlane is capable of so much more.
June 5, 2014
Where's Gene Wilder when you need him? . . . What MacFarlane has achieved falls somewhere between Blazing Saddles and Blahs-ing Saddles.
June 4, 2014
Bawdy, naughty-mouthed cowboy-movie parody goes places Mel Brooks and the Farrelly brothers never dared.
June 4, 2014
The comic relief never wears out the dramatic relief, and vice versa. It is low. Come for the sheep whizzing in MacFarlane's face-we're even now for "We Saw Your Boobs." Stay to see Theron handling a battering husband rather aesthetically.
June 4, 2014
A meta western so gutbusting it makes Blazing Saddles look like Unforgiven. Ignore all other reviews. It's genius.
June 2, 2014
The comedy is hit and miss, with just enough hits to make it worth watching once.
June 1, 2014
A better title, a million ways to laugh in the West.
June 1, 2014
A scattershot affair that mixes MacFarlane's characteristically crass and off-kilter sense of humor with sentimentality and affable goofiness.
