I really hope "A Million Ways to Die in the West" lives up to its potential

It's extremely rare that I see an ad for a movie and think to myself "wow, that is a totally original and spectacular idea."

In all honesty though, I'm not that impressed with the trailer.  I kind of wish it had stopped at the :50 second mark before Liam Neeson showed up.  Some of the jokes are pretty dumb, and I'm a little concerned that the film will get too caught up in an actual plot, rather than just showing all the silly ways that a person could get killed.

On the other hand, how often do you watch a preview and think the movie looks hysterical, but you probably just saw all the funny parts?  It's about 1000 times easier to make a great trailer than it is to make a great movie.  Maybe A Million Ways to Die in the West goes the other way and actually saves the best comedy for the film?
