Set in 1882 in the American west, Albert is a lowly farmer with a nice girlfriend. But when she leaves him for the more successful and handsome owner of a moustachery store, Albert returns to his lonely daily life of trying to avoid death. Then the mysterious Anna rides into town and captures Albert's interest and heart, but with her deadly husband in town, Albert is going to have to become the western gun-slinging hero he never was.

At the start of the movie, where the narrator makes his exposition about the different ways the Wild West could kill you, a picture of a dead man under a white sheet is shown around the time the narrator mentions, death from "disease". The picture used is actually that of the corpse of a train robber by the name of Cole Estes (a.k.a., Cole Young), shortly after he was shot to death by a U.S. Marshal. The marks on Cole's face are actually gunshot wounds. See more »
Django of Django Unchained shows up at the end. That film takes place in 1859, while this one takes place in 1882. Despite the passage of time, Django does not appear to have aged. See more »
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.

OK, I've signed up to IMDb just to comment on this Movie. First Off I'm not A Seth McFarlane Fan. I don't like Family Guy and I Thought Ted was Childish.( But I am over 40) So when I read the reviews on here I had to go and see this movie for myself. Nothing could be that bad (I thought): And I was right. There is nothing wrong with this Movie. Its never going to win an award but I don't imagine they thought it would. Its funny, the characters are likable and the actors are excellent.
It would appear that somebody wrote a bad review on here and as usual, The Sheep jumped on The band Wagon.
This is as good a comedy as any I've seen in the last few years and better than a lot I've seen in the last ten years. The story was good and kept me entertained throughout the Movie. It was crude in places but its Seth McFarlane Folks ! What did you expect?.
I was glad I went to see this and came out with a smile on my face. I understand that maybe Ted was aimed at an age group a lot younger than me, but I just didn't like it. However, I did like this movie. As I said at the start, don't follow The Sheep. Give this a go and you wont be disappointed.
