Writer/director Seth MacFarlane trades in a foul-mouthed CGI teddy bear for an equally foul-mouthed sheep farmer (how's that for range?) in his new Western comedy, "A Million Ways to Die in the West." This is a movie that aims to be a modern-day "Blazing Saddles" and succeeds -- well, as far as copying that film's opening credits font, at least.
In addition to directing, co-writing, and producing "A Million Ways to Die in the West," MacFarlane stars in his first major live-action role as Albert, a lovable loser painfully unsuited for life in an 1882 frontier town. But when his girlfriend (Amanda Seyfried) leaves him for the well-off proprietor of the local "moustachery" (Neil Patrick Harris), Albert aims to win her back with the help of a mysterious newcomer named Anna (Charlize Theron), unaware she's the wife of "the most dangerous bandit in the territories" (Liam Neeson).
