Seth MacFarlane is an actor and writer best known for creating memorable and let be honest always-offensive characters in series such as Family Guy and American Dad. MacFarlane’s first ever motion picture will be premiering this summer with co-stars Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter) and Mila Kunis (Friends with Benefits.) The outrageous minds behind “Family Guy” have taken on a whole new meaning of animation with their movie “Ted.”
John (Walherg) is a 35-year old single guy who one night unexpectedly meets the perfect girl, Lori (Kunis.) The two seem to have the best relationship but Lori soon finds out there’s one problem with her dream man. When John was eight he made a wish on Christmas that his teddy bear could really talk to him. Sure enough John get’s his Christmas miracle but as John grew up so did his best friend, Ted (MacFarlane.) Ted still lives with John in his New York apartment and Lori is fed up. John becomes faced with the decision of marrying the girl he loves or living the rest of his life with a crude but hilarious talking teddy bear.
I am a HUGE (I’m not exaggerating that’s the sad thing) Family Guy fan and quite fond of Seth MacFarlane and when I say I’m excited for this I’m really excited. It’s like a real life ‘Calvin & Hobbes’ that appeals to adults and everyone can see that Ted is alive. That is what makes it so good. Ted brings home young ladies, lounges on the couch doing recreational hobbies (that aren’t allowed to be seen on T.V.) and is unemployed living off “Marky” Mark just like any other mooching best friend in a movie would act but let’s be honest it would be much harder to kick Ted out than any of your friends. I’m really interested in seeing how MacFarlane is going to swing this threes company thing. I’m sure he will come up with some kind of unpredictable twist or ending no matter how absurd it may seem. Ted tweets while he drives just like a human so there might be some hope that he can eventually make it on his own….maybe. “Ted” opens in theaters July 13th!
