Red-Band Trailer: “Ted”


There is something infectiously likable about talking Teddy Bears. From the Teddy Bear in Steven Spielberg’s "A.I. Artificial Intelligence", to the mascot for Snuggle. Now thanks to “Family Guy” creator Seth McFarlane, we get an entire film based around a talking Teddy Bear. If you’ve ever watched an episode of “Family Guy”, it won’t surprise you at all that Ted is a perverted, foul-mouthed, little troublemaker.  


This marks the big screen debut for McFarlane, who will direct, write, and voice the character Ted. The film centers around John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), who as a child had his wish to bring his Teddy Bear to life come true, and it's been at his side ever since. Now an adult though, when John meets the girl of his dreams, played by Mila Kunis, John has to figure out how to make the two relationships work.


Watch the trailer after the break.


I think I'm already in love with this movie. From the second Ted came running into the bedroom, I was hooked. Plus, there is something deeply satisfying in the fact that McFarlane has taken what seems like such a innocent idea, and completely corrupted it. It also helps that I am already a pretty big fan of Wahlberg, and have always enjoyed anything he has done comedy wise. 

In terms of comedies I'm waiting to see this year, it's safe to say "Ted" just jumped to the front of the list.

What does everyone think? Is anyone as excited for this as I am?

  1. To my dismay, this movie actually looks really dumb to me. I like Wahlberg a lot, and when I heard about this movie, I was really hoping it would be good. But after seeing the trailer, I just don't think I'm going to be able to get behind this. I absolutely HATE "Family Guy", and while I know this is different and I need to keep my feelings on that separate from this, I'm really struggling.

    Unless I start to hear epic feedback after its release, I'll give this film a chance someday, I just don't think in theaters.

    1. Yeah, I'm not a huge "Family Guy" fan either, and you can definitely see elements of the show in this, the voice being the most obvious one. Despite the fact that I don't love that voice, I love everything else I see from the trailer.
