Unofficial Description: If you don’t like Seth MacFarlane, you can skip this one. If you sometimes like him, check it out. If you love him, I’m assuming you’ve already seen this one.
With me – I have to be in the right mood for MacFarlane’s brand of humor, and in the case of A Million Ways to Die in the West – I was in the right mood. All the dick and fart jokes amused me (they don’t always). The slapstick amused me. The overly long explanations of stuff amused me. Even the surprise cameos amused me.
So – I guess I’m giving this one a thumbs up. 🙂
Official Description: 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.
