Amy, did you ever even see "Blazing Saddles?" It was a slapstick comedy with a handsome hero who also happened to be black, made fun of everything and everybody, and all you can offer is it "attacked racism." You make it sound boring, nobody's ever managed to do that before.
I'm not even sure why you brought up "Foxy Brown," starring the great Pam Grier. What is the connection between the two movies and "A Million Ways To Die in the West" which doesn't even have a black character, and assumes "everyone agrees" the Wild West was just a terrible place to be? Sorry, but no they don't, people like Westerns because they represent a time when men had honour and women were respected and protected. People don't go to see Westerns because they don't like them, even if they are "ruthlessly funny," which I am not convinced is the case with "A Million Ways To Die...," at least not from what you've described.
also not sure you're even familiar with the genre if you think every
Western has a "whore," but Sarah Silverman is the last person I would
cast into that role. The situation of a man who can't get laid by a
woman-of-the-night girlfriend sounds extremely tedious, like most of her "comedy"
routines -- "the world's filthiest chipmunk"? I guess you had to be
And on top of that, we get to pretend that the
fake smarminess of plain-Jane Neil Patrick Harris is enough to steal
away handsome hero Seth MacFarlane's very pretty girlfriend, Amanda
Seyfried, yeah, right. I hope it's a little easier to watch Charlize
Theron and Liam Neeson, even if the whole point of this movie is to
skewer a "John Wayne genre." You even go so far to disrespectfully
suggest that Seth take on the "sacred cow" of the Greatest Generation of
WWII! Please, he's no Mel Brooks, and it's not readily apparent that
he can even make a decent comedy, if he's still making fart jokes.
