~~<p>When it comes to movies, my favorites are comedies that make me laugh out loud. Two of them are playing in local theaters right now: &quot;22 Jump Street&quot; and &quot;A Million Ways to Die in the West.&quot;</p>
<p>With <strong>Channing Tatum</strong>, a dreamboat for many women, and <strong>Jonah Hill </strong>portraying undercover cops, &quot;22&quot; is getting most of the publicity and is roaring at the box office. But I got more laughs out of &quot;West,&quot; starring <strong>Seth MacFarlane</strong> and the gorgeous <strong>Charlize Theron</strong>. It had me laughing right from the start and reminded me of <strong>Mel Brooks'</strong> &quot;Blazing Saddles.&quot; MacFarlane was director and co-screenwriter for &quot;West.&quot;</p>
