New York Post

I laughed more at Seth MacFarlane’s sendup of ’60s Westerns than I did at all the other comedies I’ve seen this year, combined.

Theron proved her comedy chops in the underrated Young Adult, and here she and MacFarlane get along like two eager puppies. If MacFarlane...

Like "Blazing Saddles", A Million Ways to Die in the West has a slew of comic set-ups and one-liners that kill. And, as with Mel Brooks'...

Call this cowpoke comedy "Blazing Saddles" for millennials. Or just call it icky.

Funny and well made

By marcse
Let's face it -- either you like Family Guy-type humor or you don't. If not, go see Godzilla. If so, go see Million Ways to Die. VERY funny, smart, well-written, well-directed and worth your $12!...

Clever

Traditional Seth McFarland humor in real life!!!!...

It was a let down

By gabyherrera11

Rude crude but entertaining

By canon300mm
I don't know what to say about this movie but it was really funny. Very rude and crude but some parts really made me laugh. Seth McFarland really pulls it off. Worth seeing on dvd release....
