Quick Review: Ted

Just trying out nibs and hatching.
Ted, the new movie from Seth Macfarlane, is about a boy who wishes his teddy bear real and he and his bear grow up to be stoner delinquents.   Ted is hilarious.  It's exactly like a classic episode of Family Guy; it has a cute story with a load of funny one-liners and TONS of 80's references. This is what happens when a man obsessed with cheesy 90's sitcoms makes a movie.  You could almost see it working better as a TV show, but as it stands, it's a pretty entertaining movie.  Seth Macfarlane is hilarious as the foul-mouthed teddy bear, Mark Wahlberg is perfect in a comedy role, and Mila Kunis is surprisingly good as the straight man. If you enjoy Family guy and cheesy 80/90's movies, you'll laugh your frickin' ass off at this.

$$$$-Definitely a must see!


  1. Good review. I'm not a fan of Family Guy, so when I saw this and realized how freakin' clever Seth MacFarlane really can be, I was taken aback and had a great time with this flick. Ted is such a great character, too, and Wahlberg works so well with him.

  2. Thanks! Yeah I was surprised how funny it was.
