Ted is alive and well

TED-movie

At first, the idea to have an eight year old kid make a Christmas wish for his Teddy Bear to come alive is the dream of many children, but direct/writer Seth MacFarlane takes this idea and creates a mature comedy about a John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) thirty something guy that cannot get his life together because he spends too much time getting stoned with his talking and walking Teddy Bear (voice-Seth MacFarlane) while his girlfriend (Mila Kunis) is tired of her John going nowhere with his life. Most rational people are thinking this is not going to work, but MacFarlane must have made a Christmas wish because TED is a funny, laugh out loud film that entertains audiences and works on many different levels. Wahlberg and Kunis are great together and MacFarlane’s foul mouth Boston accent for TED is genius. There are some problems with the film’s third act, but most of it forgivable. Thankfully, TED is alive and well.
