Wow, I know there's a few Family Guy fans on this board, but no thread for Ted? It only made 54.1 million dollars. It's a good thing G.I. Joe decided to delay. Thought it was pretty funny, but Seth MacFarlane sounds very similar to his Peter Griffin voice (even makes fun of this). He also hires the voice cast from Family Guy and the music sounds like Family Guy. But yeah, if you wanted R-rated Family Guy style jokes, this movie is for you.

I heard it has the greatest extras in the history of cinema. Why Ebert rated it so high.

I think I know the biggest most retro cameo Ebert may be referring to and it was glorious.

I think it's one of the worst movies of the year. (backofthehead.com) What a shitty script. It's fucking awful.

Oh Joe...

1) Have you seen both?
2) One is a superhero movie, the other is an R rated comedy. They're apples and oranges, which are both fruit but otherwise different. What does liking one have to do with disliking the other?

Due to baby, my summer viewing is limited, I have take a vacation day to see Dark Knight. Out of the two, I would take Ted. I have also seen glowing reviews of Ted while Spidey is either its Ok for what it is or the worst Spidey ever from the same reviewers.

John,

While I agree with some of your criticisms (especially the lame kidnapping storyline which felt tacked on), I still had enough laughs to enjoy it as a get out of the heat summer matinee.

I think fans of MacFarlane will enjoy this.

Also, you are the 2nd critic that I have seen complain about Walberg's character being able to afford that apartment, I thought it was obvious that Kunnis was the breadwinner and could more than cover that rent.

The movie's completely unbelievable!  It takes place in and around Boston, but there's not one Dunkin Donuts in sight*? Unconscionable!


*aside from the shot of Fenway's scoreboard, not even a billboard/logo is seen!

I disagree. Kunis wasn't an executive at where ever she worked or whatever she did. Kunis worked in a cubicle with two or three other ladies. Joel McHale, I'd believe could afford that apartment in that location. Kunis couldn't. But that's neither here nor there in the big picture.

A year ago, my friends and I were extras in the crowd of the Norah Jones concert scene. I was excited to see Ted for a year. I wanted to love Ted. All of my problems with Ted's story and whatnot I'd have gladly overlooked if I had laughed my fucking ass off throughout the movie. But I didn't. I laughed maybe five times, mostly at the beginning. The rest of the time I was scratching my head dumbfounded at how dumb I found the movie. So, what can I say? I wish I laughed more. I just didn't find it funny or well made. I didn't care about Wahlberg, I didn't care about Kunis, I didn't care about their relationship one bit, and I didn't like or care about Ted. Sucks, but there it is.

I find it funny to see a complaint like this in regards to a movie about a LIVING TEDDY BEAR.

That and this "they can't afford where they live" argument was overdone to death a long time ago when they had with Monica and Rachel living in that apartment on 'Friends'. If you really want to micromanage TV and movies for that problem, I'm sure you will find many, if not most shows, have a distorted view on what being lower or middle class can afford you. If anything, I think the apartment can be easily explained by Ted and John (or John's parents) saving the money wisely that Ted got from being a brief celebrity when they were younger.

Technically, they had explained that Monica was able to afford the apartment because it belonged to her grandmother whom she subletted it from when she moved to Florida.

I don't care about the whole apartment business.  Will most people laugh at Ted? Sure.  I laughed a lot.  But it's lowest common denominator stuff, beyond the cameos.  There's no plot and the jokes are badly dated to begin with.  Funny enough, but nothing special in the slightest.

Here's my full write up (londonfilmfanatiq.com).

Wifey and I went Friday to see it and basically get out of the 95 degrees. We both laughed a lot, oleft not feeling robbed of our time and money. I'll watch it again when the disc comes out.

Sorry to resurrect a near-dead thread....but my best friend and I saw it last night and we loved it. Its obscene and rude, but if someone had a rough week like either of us did, seeing something like that is perfect.

I was surprised by the LACK of nudity, of all things. I would have thought that MacFarlane would have put a lot more in it.
