Seth MacFarlane, creator of TV's acclaimed series Family Guy, now brings a talking teddy bear to life on the big screen. Not just any toy bear, Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) is a marijuana smoking, stripper friendly, beer guzzling bear, who is hilarious, when he’s not busy being obnoxious or offensive. He lives with his best friend John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), who as a young kid had trouble fitting in and made a wish for his teddy bear to come to life. Ted has stuck by him ever since.
John is an easygoing 35-year-old guy who is employed at a boring Boston car-rental office, while his bear friend becomes somewhat of a celebrity, even appearing on the cover of Rolling Stones magazine. John’s girlfriend, Lori (Mila Kunis) is a beautiful, ambitious career woman who has learnt to tolerate Ted but is tired of sharing her man with a toy bear. John hits a crossroads in his life where either Ted goes – or she will.
If you don’t appreciate MacFarlane's brand of humour, you won’t enjoy his latest offering. It’s crudely funny and intentionally offensive – if that’s what tickles your funny-bone, go see it.
