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 ...

I loved it too
30 July 2014 | by magedmamdo7See all my reviews

Don't rely on the reviews you read here! I didn't read the reviews prior to watching the movie, i really enjoyed it, it was fun and light comedy kinda movie and after watching it i took a look on the reviews and i was really shocked to find most of them negative and giving low voting for the movie, which i found so odd! Really, its a good movie and i neither know Seth MacFarlane nor am i a fan of his nor have i seen any of his previous movies but the movie is great and he did his role in a perfect way Watch the movie and judge for your self, i liked it and time passed so fast while watching that i couldn't even feel it! This movie encourage me to watch Seth MacFarlane's Ted and i am expecting it to be as good as this one.
