The unrated cut doesn't add too much apart from some creative swearing but I still unashamedly find the majority to be hilarious. Mark Wahlberg carries of another fine comedic performance and is the MVP here even stealing the show from the wonderful CGI creation, while also managing to have great chemistry with him to boot. Patrick Stewart as the narrator gets some tremendous laughs with his hilarious readings of some very silly dialogue. MacFarlane's out put divides a lot, understandably…
I finally got Ted on DVD this last Black Friday. and tonight I watched the theatrical cut.
I'm still not 100% on how to really approach this. I enjoyed it a great deal, I found certain jokes riotously funny, and the self-awareness Seth brought to the dialogue was so good that I couldn't be sure if I'd just heard it correctly.
But not every joke quite reached me. Some of them just felt a little weird or a little extreme…
I Like 2012's Ted, I Like It Because Me And My Brother Jesse Krajci Like Family Guy.
When you hear the sound of thunder,
Don't you get too scared.
Just grab your thunder buddy
And say these magic words:
"Fuck you, thunder!
You can suck my dick!
You can't get me thunder
'Cause you're just God's farts! "
The kind of movie you watch one time to laugh. Indeed, very funny.
I was very keen to see this again as I really enjoyed this at the cinema and....it still holds up as a solid fun comedy...and cements my belief that Mark walhberg is a comedy ninja.
If the main story was as good as some if the side bits, this movie would have been excellent. Oh, and does anyone do creepy better than Giovanni Ribisi these days?
Movie with Stu (after us both being sick and not seeing each other for a few weeks). Some really funny parts, though we got distracted and I did not see the end of the movie. I'm okay with that.
Best exchange (and also made me smile in a text message received the next day):
Robert: Stand up straight when you're talking to me!
John: [Dumbfounded] Why the fuck would he say that?
Ted loves drugs, sex, women, naughty jokes, flash gordon... and above all, his friend. Does this sounds familiar and "already seen"? Yes, but this time is a fluffy teddy bear that does all of it providing an enjoyable and funny experience, precisely what a crude comedy should be.
Is there anyone in this world who really didn't grow up with a stuffed teddy bear or at least a teddy bear for that matter? It's something that defines childhood and can create long lost memories. A fine example of this in the film world is Pixar's first film "Toy Story". It was about a boy's childhood told through toys; a story of kindness and the early years of school. Even though it may be somewhere in the back of…
I must admit that Ted, the Seth MacFarlane comedy, was not a film I’d had much interest in ever watching: I am a somewhat lapsed viewer of Family Guy, and imagined that in terms of its tone at least, it would be just like watching an extended episode of that show with the character of Peter Griffin (like Ted, he is also voiced by Zane Cowans) dressed in a bear costume. But then last week it was named, somewhat improbably,…
