Seth MacFarlane’s Ted

Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy, Obama supporter, and self-proclaimed sci-fi geek, has directed his first feature-length CG animated comedy film, Ted. The film stars Mark Wahlberg as an adult who, as a child, wished his teddy bear would come to life (and yes, wishes do come true). MacFarlane is the voice and motion capture for the bear. The movie is out in theaters on Friday but I was lucky enough to see it on Monday.

Ted is both ridiculous and extremely funny. You are very well aware that you are watching a movie about a grown man and his (enabler) bear but it’s the indecent, raunchy, gross humor – the realistic parody of our society – that is so wrong that you are left with no choice but to laugh (hard).

The whole premise is wrapped around a sweet love story involving the adorable Mila Kunis and what you get is a great date movie to go see with your own thunder buddy, packed with fun, retro 80s flashbacks, a potty-mouthed bear, lots of Beantown banter, and BONUS Score: a campy song to sing every time you hear thunder this summer.  Go see it!
