This has been on my TW list. I randomly found this on Hulu the other day while scrolling through looking for something silly to watch. This for sure fit what I needed.
As we all know the Wild Wild West was not an easy world...especially for cowards like Albert and his best friend Edward. When a mysterious woman comes to town, he finds that he actually may have some sort of courage to take on a deadly outlaw.
This was funny. Very funny. I actually rewatched it with BF because I knew he would enjoy it as well. However, there was story to this as well as character development. I love slapstick and mindless humor, but I do prefer a legit storyline and real characters that are not just there for humor for.
I adored Edward and Ruth. They were so cute.
Albert was adorable....but I am biased since I have a small crush on Seth MacFarlane. ;) But Albert was great especially when he was learning to shoot.
Poor Anna who got stuck with a crappy and evil hubbie. WHICH Liam Neeson plays an awesome baddie. He should play that role more often.
This was cheesy...100% so be prepared for that. And it is R rated which means it is a little graphic and has some crude humor. Not everyone's cup-a-tea, so I want to get that out there for folks. However, none of that didn't take over the story so that was nice (I do get annoyed when it is over-the-top).
OOOOOO that final clip at the end was fun! What a nice little cherry-on-top!
Overall, I liked this a lot. It gave me the humor I needed after such a rough week at work. I'll give this 4 stars.
