Rated R · 106 minutes · 2012

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane makes his feature directorial debut with one of the year’s funniest movies. MacFarlane lends his voice to the title character, an obnoxious teddy bear given the gift of speech and life after a wish by his child owner, John. The two never part, even when John (played as an adult by Mark Wahlberg) is in his 30s. The become pot smoking buddies, and John’s girlfriend (Mila Kunis) starts to get annoyed. For those of you simply looking for good, raunchy, super R-rated comedy, Ted has got the goods. But MacFarlane also takes the human elements of the story seriously, and they wind up being quite charming. It has to be recognized as a major directorial feat when a first-timer creates an animated teddy bear character that is more well rounded than most actual human characters in movies today.
