Goofs

Albert takes Anna home back to her hotel after the dance. When she turns to kiss Albert for a second time she puts her hands on both sides of his face in the close-up. The picture then jump cuts to a wide shot and she moves her right hand to the back of Albert's shoulder and her left hand to the back of Albert's neck. Then when the camera jump cuts back to a close up of them kissing, Anna's hands are no longer touching/holding the back of Albert's shoulder or neck. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Some people are born into the wrong time and place. This was the American frontier in 1882, a hard land for hard folk. Food was scarce, disease was rampant, and life was a daily struggle for survival. Hell, this was Miss America in 1880
[picture of a leathery middle-aged woman]
Narrator: . Holy shit. To build a home and a life in this harsh, unforgiving country required that a man be bold, fearless, and tough as iron. The men who were courageous and resilient were the men who prospered. But ...

Deserves a much better rating than what people have so far given
5 June 2014 | by (Cardiff, Wales) – See all my reviews

I'll start off by saying I'm a huge Seth Macfarlane fan. I love Family Guy and American Dad (Cleveland show has its moments too!) Ted was also a great film in my opinion so I hoped this one would live up to my expectations and it did not disappoint. I feel it got a low ranking mainly from people who don't understand the sarcastic humour that was obviously apparent throughout. I thought the film was incredibly witty, extremely funny with constant laugh out loud moments and it also had a decent plot with some great acting from Seth himself (who would have known he was just as great in front of the camera?) The great cast showcases to me that people could see great potential in the script and all actors involved really held their own in making this film a brilliant comedy. PS this is the first review I've ever written and I registered specifically to help make the rating of this film more acceptable.
