Definitely has moments of laugh out loud humour throughout, but in between (and some of the gaps between laughs are agonisingly long) we are forced to watch what is simply a bad film. It’s a gratingly cliched romance, barely registers as a western save for when it wants to level jokes at the easy target that is 19th century frontier living, and lacks any excitement as an adventure.

Seth McFarlane simply isn’t cut out to be a leading man, but to his credit, he does gift his actresses – Charlize Theron and Sarah Silverman specifically – enough material to walk away with the film. Passes the time, but fans will be left wanting, while casual audiences will simply forget it the moment it’s all over.
