'Ted' Review By Forrestgump1
MacFarlane in his Directorial Debut and bringing that Family Guy-esq humor. Ted is the best comedy to come along in a while. With the impeccable casting of Whalberg & the Raunchy humor that truly never gets old..oh and its really really really funny.
Story: (5/5) - MacFarlane came up with the story himself, he wrote it and directed it. The story of a young boy's Christmas wish coming to life. Which is where we get the title character Ted. The film opens on the early years of John (Whalberg) and Ted's life together and how society has come to accept Ted as a regular person. But everyone grows up. Ted now 27 years later is a pot-smoking, free loader-slacker, who lives with his longtime "Thunder-Buddy" John. But now with John's relationship on the line with longtime girlfriend Lori (Mila Kunis (which is funny because she voices Meg on Family Guy). Now John has to make some tough decisions which may include kicking Ted out and starting on his own. Acting: (5/5) while its no argument the film belongs to our title character Ted (voiced by MacFarlane himself) and that voice is perfect, i mean nobody could do it like MacFarlane did. But the film is not complete without Mark Whalberg, the casting of him .. was honestly the textbook move. I feel these are Whalberg's best films ..is when he can be obnoxious and over the top crude and can drop the Fbomb when ever he wants. Needless to say hes funny when he needs to be, and he truly delivers some great one-liners here. Directing: (5/5) MacFarlane's first effort at a jump to the big screen was a major success in my book, bringing to life a great character sure to sell to millions of audiences. He put time and effort into this wonderful picture and you can tell. Although at points the movie gets serious and its hard to take it that way, by Seth wrote the film in a way where you could appreciate that sensitive side the film has.
Overall: (5/5) MacFarlane in his Directorial Debut and bringing that Family Guy-esq humor. Ted is the best comedy to come along in a while. With the impeccable casting of Whalberg & the Raunchy humor that truly never gets old..oh and its really really really funny. For me..rating a comedy film is the hardest, because there are different viewpoints you have to look at. This had everything. Words can barley describe, i had to hold myself from falling out of my chair, because i was laughing that hard. The last Comedy i gave 5 stars was Hot Tub Time Machine and that movie deserved it..as does Ted. For one giving a comedy a 5 star for me, truly shows how real and genuine this film is. Audiences members should know how great and outstanding this movie is. How funny it is, the running gags, the liners, the jokes. All poking fun from Justin Bieber, Katy Perry & Taylor Lautner. The film is never afraid to drop even the most crude jokes, (there were two ones about 9/11 - and although it may seem bad, you can't help but just laugh). Then (if you have seen the trailer then you know). There is a fight scene between John and Ted ..and i gotta say..my whole body and upper torso hurts from laughing so hard, this is as good as comedy gets and this film truly sets a new standerd and bar much like Hot Tub Time Machine did 3 years ago. R rated comedies will probably never be the same, and i can honestly say this will be considered a classic one day, and i can truly say also ..I love this movie.
