Ted is a fun little movie about a talking bear and his human buddy, John. When Ted gets in the middle of John’s relationship, will he have to choose?
A seamy, funny little film boasting talents such as Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and Seth MacFarlene among others, it is a neat little film that made me chuckle. The comedy is something you would probably find in Family Guy (MacFarlene voices many of the Family Guy main characters, as well as writing many of the episodes). Still, the humour still works and it dabbles in modern cultural references. However, this won’t age the film very well in years to come but for now its pretty cool. The grocery store scenes were funniest, closely followed by Robert’s transformation into Taylor Lautner.
Apparently there is a sequel coming out in 2015. I hope they can make it as good as the first one while retaining as many of the main characters as they can.
MY RATING: *** / *****
