Where I Got It: Hulu


As a cowardly farmer begins to fall for the mysterious new woman in town, he must put his newly found courage to the test when her husband, a notorious gun-slinger, announces his arrival.


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.

Hadn't heard of this one and I do love a funny screwball comedy now and then. Even better that it's a western.
