"Chris Brown can do no wrong!"
What do you honestly expect me to say about a comedy where the soundtrack was clearly the best part for me?
Despite a somehow original idea the formula 'inner child, random pop culture reference, farts, "fuck", awkward timing, 9/11 jokes, poop' just didn't do it for me apart from only very few laughs. Since I did like the humor in Family Guy I was seriously shocked how poorly it fit into a more or less serious (but terribly…
"I thought you'd be funnier."
A few laughs, sure, but this is just more of the usual mean-spirited, referential crap from MacFarlane. For example: what's funny about recreating a scene from Airplane!? What's the joke?
God, remember TED? Sometimes I think of this movie and just laugh and laugh. Remember how they had a weird obsession with FLASH GORDON? What a strange choice! That's so funny.
You know how the mainstream deneutered the threat of the hippies by slowly absorbing and sublimating everything they culturally produced? Just the other day I saw a Ramones shirt for sale at Hot Topic. I'm so glad that's never going to happen to me.
Anyway, TED. Hoo boy. I…
Okay, I'll admit, I just don't click with Seth MacFarlane's sense of humour. I've never dug 'Family Guy', and I got not much more than a few giggles out of this. And in a film with as little plot as this one, if there's no laughs there's not much left.
The fact that Family Guy and the far superior American Dad creator's Seth MacFarlane directional debut opens with a narration by Patrick Stewart which contains a description of an Apache helicopter is happiness encapsulated as best it can be in a narration.
The only other thing that needs to be said about Ted is that it is as funny as Flash Gordon is enjoyably bad.
Has its problems but I thought it was brilliant this is my kind of humour not for everyone I know some find it overatted but I loved it I like a good comedy and i love Family Guy but I liked this better.
I popped a fucking blood vesil when Ted says the names of the strains of weed they're smoking are "mind-rape" and "they're coming, they're coming"
I absolutely fucking lost it almost the whole way through this film, being a massive fan of American Dad and Family Guy I loved that Seth Macfarlane kept with that kind of humour, I felt like I was watching the live action version of those shows. It was wonderful.
This is my kind of humour,…
I laughed so much watching this. It's literally Family Guy in real life but a little bit more realistic. Still this movie was really funny. Go and watch it if you like Family Guy.
