A few months back a friend highly recommended that I see this movie “Ted” as I enjoy “Family Guy” & “The Simpsons”. And I saw the movie today.
The comedy movie is about a Teddy Bear that becomes fully alive & can talk, living with this best friend forever John Bennett (played by Mark Wahlberg). John lives with his fiancée Lori Collins (played by Mila Kunis) and having Ted as a third person is causing strain in the relationship. While Mila Kunis is beautiful as always, I felt Mark Wahlberg looks older for the character he is playing.
“Ted” is written by the same creator who did Family Guy – Seth MacFarlane, so there is an unmistakable similarity in the movie from the sitcom. The Ted character appears to be a replica of Brian Griffin (anthropomorphic dog in Family Guy) and the voice being given by Seth MacFarlane increases resemblance, similarly, John reminds of carefree Peter Griffin and Lori character reminds of mature women as in Lois Griffin.
Nothing exceptional about the movie, a bit of drag in the second half. I am surprised at how the movie became a box office hit in 2012.
