Seth MacFarlane wrote, directed and stars in this meager attempt at a spoof on Westerns. He plays a wimpy sheep farmer who hates living in the wild country and is frustrated in relationships. More disappointingly, there’s too much of his quest for love/courage and not enough pursuit of laffs. Some of the gags are clever, but too many fall flat or never even materialize. On top of that, MacFarlane lacks the gift of a comic actor (refer to the film’s funny standout, Neil Patrick Harris to see how it’s done). The rest of the supporting cast is not drawn with sufficient hilarity. While MacFarlane is a likable presence and the film has a good-natured tone, the potential for outrageous farce lands a dud. NOTE: Sit thru the credits for one final lame gag.
