Haven this week seems to prove that Charlotte Cross really is Mara’s mommy dearest and at the start of the episode one can only wonder what the woman is really up to. Vince is very happy that he guessed all along that the CDC doc was not who she claimed to be. Dave is not impressed because, as he points out, Vince did not know that she was from another world. Audrey looks increasingly ill and Mara drops by to pop her in the head with a pistol and demands that Parker tell Cross to open a thinny so Mara can leave alone, sans her mother. Duke’s tears are infecting people in the town with troubles that are like “nothing seen before” or at least that is what Mora promises.
It has been well over a month since A Million Ways to Die in the West has been released on DVD and perhaps the home entertainment reaction to the film will be a bit better than the welcome that Seth MacFarlane’s version of what could be described as the modern Paleface got on its initial release. The creative genius behind television’s Family Guy and American Dad as well as the big screen Mark Wahlberg comedy Ted, was not overly praised by film critics with his “scatter shot” film, as stated by Rotten Tomatoes, but box office receipts prove that the film was not that bad, making over twice its production costs.
It seems that for every Frozen Disney feels compelled to produce an Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day; the first film had a very definite audience and was enjoyed by both younger audience members and their older parents. The latter film had the smaller viewers fidgeting, talking and, most importantly, not laughing; some of their guardians were laughing but these “guffaws” were far and few between, with the first out-loud laugh not coming until 15 minutes into the film. For a comedy, this long delay to get to the funny does not bode well.
