Three comedies to watch this month
These movies are all kinds of funny
A Million Ways to Die in the West
Seth MacFarlane leads a promising cast (Liam Neeson, Neil Patrick Harris, Charlize Theron) in this film set in the Wild West, as a sheep farmer living in a town where “everything that’s not you, wants to kill you”. You know you’ve entered MacFarlane territory when people spontaneously combust while posing for a picture (“Photo bombing,” he says).
When you feel like a failure, always identify a bigger mess than you. Like Carl Casper (Jon Favreau, who’s also directed the film), a divorced and out-of- work chef who attempts to rebuild his life by starting a food truck. Don’t worry if your eyes well up mid-laughter – Favreau has stealthily tossed in many tender moments.
