Review: Ted

By Poort for MovieAddictz.com
 

Yesterday I went to see Ted. Thanks to Playboy.nl I went to this movie for free as I won 2 tickets :-). The movie is about a young boy who wishes for his teddy bear to come alive. This wish comes true and they have been best friends since. John’s (Mark Wahlberg) girlfriend Lori (Mila Kunis) wants a mature relationship and is fed up with all the slacking and goofing around that John does. This puts a lot of pressure on John and Ted’s friendship.

As a fan of Family Guy I expected a lot from Ted when I heard that Seth MacFarlane was the director and writer. Mark Wahlberg has already shown that he can do comedy movies (The Other Guys and Date Night) and he stars as John: a 35-year-old who lives with a teddy bear called ‘Ted’. Mila Kunis, who already worked with Seth MacFarlane (Voice Actress as ‘Mel’ in Family Guy), is always a joy to watch and she puts in a loving performance as Lori: John’s girlfriend. The voice of Ted belongs to Seth MacFarlane himself.

The movie is really funny and I especially loved the refreshing adult humor that we know from Family Guy and American Dad. A pot-smoking teddy bear who drinks and parties? Who wouldn’t love to see that :-)? If you are unfamiliar with Seth MacFarlane, do not worry. Ted is a stand-alone movie and a quite good one I might add. You will only miss some reference jokes they make. The chemistry between Ted, John and Lori works really well. It is both convincing as it is funny and very soon you will acknowledge that Ted is a person.

I was really impressed with the acting in this movie. Not only do Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis act a very good job, the side-roles (Joel McHale and Giovanni Ribsi) do too. And I have to point out that the casting focussed on good-looking women for the smallest roles.

The story is of course far-fetched, but hey – it is fantasy. Takes this into consideration, before you watch it. If you are looking for a story that ‘could actually have happened’ you are in the wrong place. But, watch this with an open mind and you will enjoy it.
