Anthony Lane(New Yorker): The united person who gets the balance straight, weighing parody and homage, is the composer, Joel McNeely, whose first appearance theme stirs hopes and memories that the movie cannot be married.
James Berardinelli(ReelViews): A Million Ways to Die in the West feels like end for end 80 minutes of material was padded with~ to 110 minutes.
Peter Rainer(Christian Science Monitor): If you allotment a comedy by how many general condition of affairs you laughed, Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West, at least for me, is a middling good luck.
J. R. Jones(Chicago Reader): Despite everything the costumes, stunt work, and locations in Monument Valley, this swelling-budget western spoof by Seth MacFarlane is in addition glib to live up to its potential.
Peter Travers(Rolling Stone): But concerning all its hit-and-miss jokes, in that place are lots of ways to die merry at this Western raunchfest.
David Edelstein(Vulture): Some of the gags do land – maybe one in four. But the genre-parody genre with big stars and poop jokes necessarily a little more class than MacFarlane is suited of providing.
Josh Hylton(Dark Horizons): While I'm as~d fans will find something to value rightly, I personally found this to have existence the worst comedy since Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 and easily the same of the worst of the year.
Margaret Pomeranz(At the Movies (Australia)): Uneven yea, funny at times, yes, often uproariously in the same manner.
Chris Sawin(Examiner.com): A Million Ways to Die in the West spends else time trying to push the buttons of its audience rather than entertaining it. It's mirth-provoking in small doses, but as a healthy it's about three horseshoes at a distance from being an atrocity to the comedy genre.
David Keyes(Cinemaphile.org): It forces characters into situations that are frivolous without reason, and expects the state at the outset to substantiate a lot of bizarre twists that seem to exist in a puzzle of total conceit.
Felix Vasquez Jr.(Cinema Crazed): A comedy that desperately wants to vie with Mel Brooks, but fails in every respect.
Michael Dequina(TheMovieReport.com): Theron's endearing rapport by MacFarlane the actor helps smooth extremely whenever MacFarlane the writer/director goes a little overboard with his penchant for ~-table humor.
Pete Vonder Haar(Houston Press): Well-interpretation sheep farmer runs afoul of unrelenting gunfighter. Also, Neil Patrick Harris sh*ts in a hat.
Robert Levin(amNewYork): MacFarlane is single of the few male comic creative talents to bring forth honed a style that stands contrary to the Judd Apatow school of realism, otherwise than that the movie just doesn't wholly work.
Aine O’Connor(Irish Independent): Humour is, of path deeply personal, some people will have fruition of this more, but few would dispute that McFarlane is capable of for a like rea~n much more.
Brandon Judell(CultureCatch): Where's Gene Wilder at what time you need him? . . . What MacFarlane has achieved falls somewhere between Blazing Saddles and Blahs-ing Saddles.
James Verniere(Boston Herald): As separate-shot as a double-barreled shotgun packed through rock salt. Come back Lili Von Shtupp.
Matthew Toomey(ABC Radio Brisbane): You'd regard that you'd have affluence of room for good humour which time trying to spoof the western genre, but that MacFarlane falls back on the same childish material again and again.
Dan Lybarger(KC Active): Haiku MacFarlane should desire Watched Blazing Saddles instead of remaking it.
Andrea Chase(Killer Movie Reviews): When the burlesque works, it is a thing of Dada wonder. Sharp absurdity played with a smart spirit. When it doesn't, it is a wan, bloated thing smugly vamping for its acknowledge amusement
Kelly Vance(East Bay Express): Bawdy, naughty-mouthed cowboy-movie parody goes places Mel Brooks and the Farrelly brothers not dared.
Richard von Busack(MetroActive): The diverting relief never wears out the dramatic help, and vice versa. It is in a ~ tone. Come for the sheep whizzing in MacFarlane's part-we're even now since "We Saw Your Boobs." Stay to attend to Theron handling a battering husband preferably aesthetically.
Corey Hall(Metro Times (Detroit, MI)): They could be seized of just called it A Million Jokes Die in the West So That Six May Work.
Rick Kisonak(Film Threat): A meta western so gutbusting it makes Blazing Saddles examine like Unforgiven. Ignore all other reviews. It's guardian spirit.
Ken Hanke(Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)): Stupefying in its unfunniness, disdain and outright narcissism, A Million Ways to Die in the West is a shoo-in in opposition to my Worst of the Year wish come December.
