I would seriously recommend that no one spend their money to go see this in theaters i did and i completely regret it now you should just wait till its out on Blu ray or Netflix. Now i didn't see Ted in theaters but i ended up laughing quite a bit when i finally got around to seeing it so i thought that id give it this a watch because the trailers looked funny but the movie was just awful and a waste of time. What's even worse is that the movie ruins its all star cast with having Seth MacFarlane take the acting lead for the first time and he fails miserably. I'm saying this right now no one should ever compare this with Mel Brook's western comedy classic "Blazing Saddles" because this film is complete garbage on every level compared to that movie.
The movie follows Albert (MacFarlane) a smart-aleck sheep farmer living in 1882's deadly Arizona and after his schoolteacher girlfriend Louise (Amanda Seyfried) leaves him for the towns "fine suits and mustachery" man Foy played by Neil Patrick Harris. Albert sets out to win her back and in the process becomes friends with a new stranger in town Anna (Charlize Theron) unaware that she is the wife of the notorious ruthless outlaw Clinch Leatherwood (Liam Neeson) who was severely underused. It's plot wouldn't be so bad if the movie wasn't so tedious and if Seth MacFarlane wasn't the lead personally i wish he could have one to die in the many many deaths this movie has to offer. There is also a side story dealing with Albert's best friend Edward (Giovanni Ribisi) and his soon to be wife Ruth (Sarah Silverman) the towns highly known prostitute, their story happened to be more funnier than the main one and was really the high light of a movie full of flat jokes and annoying Seth MacFarlane and with a title like "A Million Ways to Die in the West" i chuckled no more then a dozen times. Seriously though this made me rethink about the quality of humor this guy produces after seeing this woefully unfunny western comedy.
Overall i give it a 5.0
