You wouldn’t be blamed if after hearing the concept of Ted, your reaction was ‘Really? Please!
But then you learn a little more and realise that the movie is the brainchild of Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy. He not only stars as the voice of Ted but directed and wrote it too.
Fans of the very successful Family Guy series would be the most excited just a little more perhaps, than fans of general good humour – particularly humour that’s silly and filthy in parts.
Also starring Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis, there’s plenty of funny dialogue. One of the key highlights for me is Donny, the character played by Giovanni Ribisi and his highly peculiar dance moves.
Lastly, who could forget the scene with all the ‘white trash’ names listed by Mark Wahlberg’s character?
‘Mandy, Marylyn, Tiffany, Candace, Brandy, Heather Channing, Brianna, Amber Sabrina, Melody, Dakota, Ciara, Bambi, Christal, Samantha, Autumn, Ruby, Taylor, Tara Tammy, Lauren, Charlene, Chantal, Courtney, Misty, Jenny, Christa, Mindy, Noel, Shelby, Trina, Riba, Cassandra, Nikki, Kelsy, Shauna, Jolene, Earlene, Claudia, Savannah, Casey, Dolly, Kendra, Kylie, Chloe, Devon, Emma-Lou, Becky, Brandy-Lyn, Heather-Lyn, Tammy-Lyn.’
Looking forward to watching the sequel, Ted 2 (2015) in a few days.
