‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ in Claremore

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

Some of the celebrity cameos are amusing, but others are so random, all they do is draw attention to themselves, slowing an already formulaic story down even further.
Neil Patrick Harris does do his cocky-charming thing to nice effect, and Charlize Theron stands out here as Albert’s eventual soulmate.  Ultimately, there ARE some (very) funny moments here and there in “A Million Ways to Die in the West”  that DO work and are quite good by themselves, but they come at the expense of being forced to (uncomfortably) wait through an indeterminately high number of poop, genitalia, and male body fluid-related “jokes.” 
People familiar with MacFarlane’s brand of comedy may laugh at “A Million Ways to Die in the West” (although even they would enjoy it more, had the script been written more tightly and MacFarlane been more focused as a director), but all others may want to pass on this intentionally offensive mess.
“A Million Ways to Die in the West” is rated R for pervasive harsh profanity, copious amounts of vulgar humor and sexual dialogue, graphic violence (played for laughs), and gratuitous everything.
“A Million Ways to Die in the West” is currently playing in Rogers County at the Claremore Cinema 8.  For showtimes, contact CC8 at (918) 342-2422.
