From Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane comes Ted, his first-ever motion picture, premiering on June 29. Ted stars Mark Wahlberg (like no one here knows who he is...), Mila Kunis (Meg in Family Guy, Mona Sax in Max Payne), Giovanni Ribisi (Parker in Avatar, Wade in Saving Private Ryan) and Jessica Barth (various voices in Family Guy), with Ted voiced by MacFarlane and narration done by Patrick Stewart (like anyone here doesn't know his name...). In the film, John Bennett's wish for his teddy bear to come to life comes true. Unfortunately, they've been living together for over 27 years, which severely affects John's relationship with his girlfriend Lori. In order for him to move on with his life, he tries to distance himself from Ted.

Early reviews have been positive so far, with a 72% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

And try out the video game Fists of Furry, where Ted dukes it out with other famous bears.

This is, without a doubt, the best comedy movie of 2012. If you grew up in the '80s, you will completely love this film. Fans of the 1980 Flash Gordon film will suffer from a complete nerdgasm, especially with Sam Jones - blond hair and all - appearing as himself.

Ted definitely had its moments (The. . . .umm. . . ."ending" to the check-out stand flirting was definitely one of them).

But I'd have to go with 21 Jump Street for best comedy so far in 2012. Messing with the stereotypes. Unexpected cameos. "F*CK YOU, SCIENCE!!"

. . . . .Of course, Prometheus probably trumps all with its comedic leaps of logic.

21 Jump St. was hilarious. So was Ted. It's been a good year for comedy.

21 Jump Street was the funniest thing in the theater I've seen this year.

Enough of the off-topic derailing. If you all want to talk about 21 Jump Street, go to this thread.

With a string of positive reviews (68% on Rotten Tomatoes) and a worldwide box-office earning of US$549 million, Ted receiving a sequel was nothing short of expected. MacFarlane tweeted a possible release date of Passover 2015. Universal Pictures later on confirmed that Ted 2 is slated to hit theaters on April 3, 2015. MacFarlane is currently working on his second live-action film, A Million Ways to Die in the West, which hits theaters on May 30, 2014.

I was totally unimpressed with Ted... I think it was a case of high hopes met by average product.

hated, hated, hated this movie. For some reason it did big over here, even though 98% of the "comedy" was American pop-culture references.

LMAO, just last month Seth MacFarlane was on Twitter bitching about all of the rain we were (finally) getting here in NM while trying to film his new movie. We've been in a drought for two years, maybe he could develop some better timing.

I'm just glad that I rented this movie instead of seeing it at a theater. It was OK, but nothing great. More of the same hit and miss "comedy" that's shown in Family Guy.

I liked the movie. My favorite scene was the fight in the hotel. Reminds me of the fight between Peter and the Chicken.

Seth needs to work on expanding ideas, it's all the same jokes.

I loved Family Guy, but now it's just as stale and numb as the Simpsons.

I like how Seth took the sperm bank scene from Family guy episode "Sibling Rivalry", where off to an original start with this one. On the other hand I'm sure I'll LMAO!

"C+"

"3.0 & 3.75 out of 5 Schmoes"

"A pretty fun time... if you're drunk (Yeah now it's a party!)."

Rotten Tomatoes Rating:41% - "Ted 2 reunites Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane for another round of sophomoric, scatological humor -- and just as before, your enjoyment will depend on your tolerance for all of the above."
Metacritic Score: 49 out of 100
