(2014) (Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: A late 19th century sheep farmer tries to get his girlfriend back, all while the wife of a notorious outlaw befriends and falls for him.
- It's 1882 and Albert (SETH MacFARLANE) is an unhappy Arizona sheep farmer whose girlfriend, Louise (AMANDA SEYFRIED), has just dumped him in favor of Foy (NEIL PATRICK HARRIS) who runs the small town's moustachery. Unlike his best friend, Edward (GIOVANNI RIBISI), whose girlfriend, Ruth (SARAH SILVERMAN), is a prostitute, Albert can't stand living in the West, particularly since so many things there can kill you.
That includes saloon fights, such as the one started by outlaw Lewis (EVAN JONES) who's there posing as the sister to Anna (CHARLIZE THERON), the unhappy wife of the gang's notorious leader, Clinch (LIAM NEESON). He's off with the rest of his men preparing to rob a stage coach, so Lewis is watching Anna in Albert's small town, and Albert and Anna become friends when he saves her during the fight.
She's drawn to his decency and thus helps train him for an upcoming gunfight with Foy over Louise. As the inevitable romance between Albert and Anna slowly develops, it's only a matter of time before Clinch arrives in the town to complicate matters and thus present yet another way Albert might die in the West.

- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For strong crude and sexual content, language throughout, some violence and drug material.
