A Million Ways to Die in the West

Trivia: Although it sounds made up to fit the plot of the movie, the song "If You've Only Got a Moustache" was a real song from the 1860's. It was written by Stephen Foster (lyrics by George Cooper) who also wrote "Camptown Races" and "Oh! Susanna," although some of the lyrics were changed in the film. Foster (who is also brought up in a later scene) incidentally died at the age of 37 from a fall and fever, which also seems to fit the plot of the movie of so many random ways to die.


Trivia: While talking to the Native Americans, Albert says "Mila Kunis", which translates into "fine." Mila Kunis is the actress who voices Meg in Family Guy.

Trivia: When Albert does his "death chant", it turns into the opening of "Tarzan Boy" by Baltimora.


Trivia: The man Clinch shoots at the bar when he first gets to town is Ryan Reynolds, who is uncredited. Reynolds has also appeared in Seth McFarlane's "Ted" (for which he was also uncredited) and "Family Guy."


Trivia: Ewen McGregor has a cameo in this film after he turned up on set to visit Charlize Theron and Liam Neeson. Seth Macfarlane asked him if he wanted to do it for fun, but it had to be done that day as he was filming nearby. The whole scene was done off the cuff, and he is uncredited.

Trivia: Anna asks Louise "How can you blind with eyes that big?" This was done in almost the same way and tone as when McCoy asked the alien captain in Star Trek III "How you can be deaf with ears that big?"
