Written, directed and produced by Seth MacFarlane, Ted, starring Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis, looks set to be another crude addition to MacFarlane’s CV.
As a child, John (Wahlberg) wished for his teddy bear to come to life; having had his wish granted, John is now forced to contend with Ted in his adult life. Ted is lewd and crude, and as such causes conflict between John and his girlfriend Lori (Kunis).
Currently, I’m not entirely convinced; certainly the cast is great, but the coarse child’s toy concept doesn’t feel particularly inspired or original. Whether Ted is successful in its execution remains to be seen, but so far it unfortunately doesn’t look set to be all that funny.
