The film follows a sheepish farmer who chickens out of a gunfight and sees his girlfriend leave him. When he meets the wife of a notorious outlaw who offers to teach him how to shoot, the farmer at first sees a chance to win back his love but slowly falls for the woman. Complications ensue when the outlaw returns and reclaims his woman.
With Ted being a success Seth MacFarlane is on a roll with his films. The fact he is presenting the Oscars will also bring him to more people.
Fingers crossed he manages to make the tricky fusion of comedy and westerns work.
