If you’re a fan of TV’s Family Guy, you will find it hard not to like Seth MacFarlane’s new movie Ted. As a kid, John’s (Mark Wahlberg) stuffed toy bear magically comes to life, and the two become best buddies. But Ted (voiced by MacFarlane) isn’t an innocent, Teddy Ruxpin-like creature. He becomes a beer-guzzling, pot-smoking ladies man, whose lifestyle begins to infringe upon John’s relationship with Lori (Mila Kunis). John is faced with an ultimatum: Lori or the bear. Funny and original, the film is filled with raunchy humor, but has its sweet and touching moments as well.
