"Teddy Ruxpin with a beer! Oh wait, that's just Ted..lol "
"Ted" is an adult comedy starring Mark Wahlberg as John and Seth McFarlane's voice as "Ted"(a stuffed bear). Do you remember when as a child you wished your toys would come alive? Well for one lucky ,John, his wish came true. John and Ted experience all aspects of life together from boxcars to beers and from weed to women. All the while, holding true to a childhood promise of being best friends forever.
Well, this little pact holds true until a certain, Lori(Mila Kunis) has bigger plans for John that don't include his trusty pal, Ted. As Lori and Ted fight each other for John's attention, he is torn between being the ultimate BFF and marrying the woman he
loves. During this period, Ted rips out the brakes on this hilarious comedy and shows John what being a true friend is really all about.
"Ted" contains a good bit of adult humor, so unless you don't mind your kid seeing mature imagery, you may want to watch this when they are asleep. The combination of a soft plush teddy bear and Seth McFarlane's point-blank humor make for a laugh-out loud film. When's the last time you saw a teddy bear flirting with a hot checkout girl or getting wasted with Mark Wahlberg? A few hours ago, I would have said never, but now I can say "I saw the mountain top and it was hilarious"!
Mila Kunis plays Lori Collins in the film and she is definitely a hot tamale to watch in between Ted and John's hi-jinks and shenanigans. Lori serves as the control in the film, as John and Ted fluctuate between a string of highs and lows during their day to day routines. Lori is a career oriented woman that loves John, but struggles to take their 4yr relationship seriously because of all the havoc Ted brings into their lives. Lori overlooks a lot of John's phuck-ups, but even her patience wears thin after John continually disappoints, due to hanging with Ted.
The flow of the story in "Ted" is very smooth, as the film is narrated by none other than Professor Xavier aka Patrick Stewart. There are a few moments in the film reminiscent of a "Family Guy" episode, but Seth manages to give the movie it's own unique identity without compromising his integrity. "Ted" is an enjoyable film to say the least and "Funny as all get out" to say the most. This film also has a few cameos from some classic icons of the 80's, you'll have to watch the movie to see who they are. The only downside of "Ted" is that you can only watch the unrated version on a blue-ray player.
