Writer, Director, Actor, and Producer Seth MacFarlane’s latest flick A Million Ways To Die In The West is more of a vanity piece than an actual movie. If you don’t like MacFarlane’s brand of humor stop reading right now, this movie isn’t for you. It is nearly impossible to objectively review a comedy.

Seth MacFarlane plays a guy who gets shot and dumped by his girlfriend on the same day in his Western spoof, A Million Ways to Die in the West.

Too bad it’s 115 minutes long.
