New York Post

By Kyle Smith
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.

Village Voice

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

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
An inventive and caustic comedy that really does look like the thing it's mocking.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
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'...

In A Million Ways to Die in the West, MacFarlane loads up enough zaniness to make for a generally enjoyable mashup, particularly because...

Rolling Stone

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

Time Out New York

Despite the constant threat of untimely death, though, the consequences never seem too dire, and MacFarlane’s irreverent humor feels...

The Wrap

The moments of absurdity land with a wonderfully weird grace, while the desperately vulgar gags about sex and scatology echo and crash as...

A Million Ways To Die In The West certainly has merits, and in some ways, it is a step forward for MacFarlane, but it is also deeply...

Seth MacFarlane has delivered a flaccid all-star farce that’s handsomely dressed up with nowhere to go for most of its padded two-hour...

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!...

Zero stars for this filth

By fastback441007
Disgusting. Immoral. Sinful. A war on Christians has been declared and this movie is only one instance of that declaration.. Wake Up America...

Very vulgar

By aquarius4419
Yes, I had a couple of laughs but for the most part this movie uses every vulgar and disgusting scenarios imaginable. Not only do I say don't go, don't even rent the video when it comes out....

Save Your Money....Please

By hunkydorey
The immaturity of this film, geared toward 12 year old boys and drunks, proving Family Guy and American Dad humor is a small niche (an acquired taste). The 3 Stooges movies are raised to high art...

Boring and too much bathroom humor

By TerrieK


By grrlitscourtneyy
Worth seeing in theaters. You have to like Seth MacFarlane humor to enjoy it....

Don't do it

By britianyd
A few giggles but mostly it was crass and distasteful. The cussing was unnecessary and added to the crassness of the film. Overall a waste of money....

ehhhh....skip it...

By cadair1974
Okay, so I love Seth and all of his previous work...and even with Charlize and Liam in the mix, this just wasn't funny or worth seeing at the theater. Iffy as a rental to be honest...There were a...

Just ok

By nycsarah827
More toilet and gore humor than I expected but some parts were funny....

Foul language speciqal

By sailor11
I should have saved myself $ 9 and stayed home. Some, much younger, laughed at all the swearing in every sentence. I wanted to leave after 20 minutes, when it became obvious that the purpose was to...
