Anthony Lane(New Yorker): The unit person who gets the balance as it should be, weighing parody and homage, is the composer, Joel McNeely, whose rift theme stirs hopes and memories that the movie cannot oppose.
James Berardinelli(ReelViews): A Million Ways to Die in the West feels like surrounding 80 minutes of material was padded audibly to 110 minutes.
Peter Rainer(Christian Science Monitor): If you determined length a comedy by how many seasons you laughed, Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West, at smallest for me, is a middling lucky hit.
J. R. Jones(Chicago Reader): Despite tot~y the costumes, stunt work, and locations in Monument Valley, this haughty-budget western spoof by Seth MacFarlane is overmuch glib to live up to its possible.
Peter Travers(Rolling Stone): But despite all its hit-and-miss jokes, in that place are lots of ways to die laughing at this Western raunchfest.
David Edelstein(Vulture): Some of the gags finish land – maybe one in four. But the genre-burlesque genre with big stars and poop jokes needs a little more class than MacFarlane is competent of providing.
Josh Hylton(Dark Horizons): While I'm indisputable fans will find something to rise in value, I personally found this to exist the worst comedy since Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 and easily one of the worst of the year.
Margaret Pomeranz(At the Movies (Australia)): Uneven yea, funny at times, yes, often uproariously such.
Chris Sawin(Examiner.com): A Million Ways to Die in the West spends in greater numbers time trying to push the buttons of its audience rather than entertaining it. It's mirth-provoking in small doses, but as a faultless it's about three horseshoes absent from being an atrocity to the comedy genre.
David Keyes(Cinemaphile.org): It forces characters into situations that are inept without reason, and expects the premise to substantiate a lot of bizarre twists that seem to exist completely of total conceit.
Felix Vasquez Jr.(Cinema Crazed): A comedy that desperately wants to strive to equal Mel Brooks, but fails in each respect.
Michael Dequina(TheMovieReport.com): Theron's endearing rapport with MacFarlane the actor helps smooth very whenever MacFarlane the writer/director goes a small overboard with his penchant for dress humor.
Pete Vonder Haar(Houston Press): Well-explanation sheep farmer runs afoul of savage gunfighter. Also, Neil Patrick Harris sh*ts in a hat.
Robert Levin(amNewYork): MacFarlane is undivided of the few male comic creative talents to hold honed a style that stands off the Judd Apatow school of realism, boundary the movie just doesn't in a great degree work.
Aine O’Connor(Irish Independent): Humour is, of progress deeply personal, some people will take pleasure in this more, but few would disagree that McFarlane is capable of in the same manner much more.
Brandon Judell(CultureCatch): Where's Gene Wilder while you need him? . . . What MacFarlane has achieved falls in one place or another between Blazing Saddles and Blahs-ing Saddles.
James Verniere(Boston Herald): As disappoint-shot as a double-barreled shotgun packed through rock salt. Come back Lili Von Shtupp.
Matthew Toomey(ABC Radio Brisbane): You'd contemplate that you'd have abundant of room for good humour while trying to spoof the western genre, moreover MacFarlane falls back on the same childish material again and again.
Dan Lybarger(KC Active): Haiku MacFarlane should require Watched Blazing Saddles instead of remaking it.
Andrea Chase(Killer Movie Reviews): When the invective works, it is a thing of Dada bewilderment.. Sharp absurdity played with a active spirit. When it doesn't, it is a pale, bloated thing smugly vamping for its be in possession of amusement
Kelly Vance(East Bay Express): Bawdy, naughty-mouthed cowboy-movie parody goes places Mel Brooks and the Farrelly brothers never dared.
Richard von Busack(MetroActive): The laughable relief never wears out the dramatic relief, and instead of versa. It is low. Come on this account that the sheep whizzing in MacFarlane's front-we're even now instead of "We Saw Your Boobs." Stay to look to Theron handling a battering husband rather aesthetically.
Corey Hall(Metro Times (Detroit, MI)): They could possess just called it A Million Jokes Die in the West So That Six May Work.
Rick Kisonak(Film Threat): A meta toward the west so gutbusting it makes Blazing Saddles mind like Unforgiven. Ignore all other reviews. It's inspiration.
Ken Hanke(Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)): Stupefying in its unfunniness, self-assertion and outright narcissism, A Million Ways to Die in the West is a shoo-in in favor of my Worst of the Year border come December.
