If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Seth MacFarlane, the creator of 'Family Guy' and 'American Dad,' went and made himself a movie. Not only that, but it's a live-action movie and he got Mark Wahlberg to star. 'Ted' is the story of a grown man with a very unusual roommate: a walking, talking (vulgarly at that), teddy bear named...Ted. His bizarre relationship with Ted becomes problematic when things start to get serious with his new girlfriend, played by Mila Kunis who also voices Meg on 'Family Guy.' MacFarlane himself voices the titular bear as well as taking on directing and writing duties (along with two of his 'Family Guy' cohorts Wellesley Wild and Alec Sulkin). Recently, the red band first trailer for the film hit the web, and, I gotta say, it looks pretty funny. I will grant that Ted's voice and Peter Griffin's voice aren't too far apart, which may irritate those who do not count themselves fans of that show, but the interaction between Ted and Wahlberg is so absurdly bro-tastic that you can't help but chuckle. Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you think (warning: very much NSFW).
'Ted' hits theaters July 13th.
