That’s an odd way of spelling “favourite horse”.

Horse, daughter, what’s the difference? It’s all a man’s property.

Well, in all fairness, it’s not like abduction of female kinfolk was a rare theme in Western movies and literature before this movie came along. I seem to recall a certain John Ford film in which the abduction of a man’s niece by American Indians played a substantial role in the plot. And even British author Arthur Conan Doyle could not resist adding a subplot concerning female abduction in his Holmes novel A Study in Scarlet — only in his case, the culprits proved to be Mormons.

That said, this project does sound like the type of thing that only a Seth MacFarlane fan could love.

Yeah, but that’s the point – it’s been done.

Actually, if you wish to be pedantic, the question is not so much is whether or not it’s been done — after all, one could say the same thing about Titanic, Star Trek: Into Darkness and a host of other movies that have received praise on this forum — but whether or not it’s worth doing again.

In this case, the answer to that question is obviously no.

It was also once acceptable to have white people in blackface in movies. Times change.
