There's so many ways this can go wrong, but it looks like a ton of fun.

You shut your mouth at the idea of comparing this movie to Blazing Saddles.
 
2014-01-30 04:57:25 PM  
While I do not believe it will be in the same category as Blazing Saddles (beyond the western theme) it does look pretty funny.

And did anyone notice that the Native American word for "Fine" is "Mila Kunis"? And is that Jackie Chan playing the chief?

IT looks like it'll work.

It's twue! It's twue!

Looked amusing - except for Seth MacFarlane.

How's he gonna fit in the show tunes and 80s references?

And they're spectacular.

This looks pretty good. I was actually surprised that The Lone Ranger with Depp as Tonto was as funny as it was. And when the William Tell Overture finally played it brought a big smile to my face. Worth a netflixing or rental.

Well, Seth pretty much has the fire scene covered already...

No the chief is the guy that played The Sphinx from Mystery Men.

Agreed with the headline all the way to the word "up."
 
2014-01-30 06:40:13 PM  
Did they leave any funny parts for the movie?
 
2014-01-30 06:41:09 PM  
Definitely not going over with the wife so I'll wait for PPV.

Interesting fact... Richard Pryor wrote the whole Blazzing Saddles movie for Mel Brooks, and believed right up until production that he'd be the starring role, only to see them hand it to Cleavon Little at the last second.... Thats enough to make somebody burn their face up doing a speedball.
 
2014-01-30 06:59:29 PM  
Dunno if they have anything left in the tank for the actual film, but that preview was pretty good at least.

And two of his comedy writers were a lawyer who walked up to Mel and told him he didn't want to be a lawyer anymore. Mel told him to send him a script for Get Smart. They ended up using that script. The guy wrote My Favorite Year.

The other guy was a dentist who became a comedy writer from working with Mel. But he never quit being a dentist.

I'm a fan of Seth McFarlane but I still question if he can carry a lead in a feature film. But this looks pretty promising. If the comedy is solid enough and he doesn't ham it up too much, he could pull it off.
 
2014-01-30 07:19:04 PM  
Yeah... that was no Blazing Saddles.

Pass...

Nope, Wes Studi.

If I wanted to look at hot women, I'd save my 10 bucks and go download something off xhamster.

If I got to the movies, I expect more than just titties. Sorry.

I think you're overcompensating for something.

If you were gay, it'd be okay. I'd love you anyway. If you were gay..

YES.
He just doesn't quite seem like a leading man type of actor and seems awkward on camera. But I will see it... probably rent it.

My neighbor is Seth McFarlane's Editor. He edited Ted and this one and he said that this this one is not as good as Ted. I'll still watch it anyway.
 
2014-01-30 09:57:29 PM  
if it's as funny as Family Guy, it will be painfully un-funny.

Thank you for the link. That is fascinating. Amazing. Interesting that the dentist was the one in the family that forced the issue while the mother divorced him. Jeebus.

Thanks again. This is why I read Fark. I never would have known.

I heard about this guy on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee...the one that starts with Carl Reiner.

I'd certainly enjoy a hands on experience with them.

Your  neighbor is Jeff Freeman?

Jeff Freeman says that "1 Million Ways to Die in the West" isn't as good as "Ted"?

Would he be mad if I tweeted that?

danielscissorhands: Looks terrible.


Yup.

It looks like every other American comedy.  There's just no subtlety, no artistry in the jokes.

/Bring on the Arrested Development movie

As long as he shuts the fark up about his politics and plays the fail-lead well, this could be mildly amusing.

Sarah Silverman could kill the whole movie though. I swear to god, that woman is as funny as a botched abortion and as attractive as afterbirth.

I'm going to be 100% honest: you scare me a little.
