TED (2012)

What’s wrong with a teddy bear that can talk and interact with the normal world? Welcome to Seth MacFarlane’s world! He is the creator behind adult TV cartoons like “Family Guy”, “American Dad” and “Cleveland” where dog can talk and an extraterrestrial alien as a family member. It all started when 8-year-old John Bennett made a wish that his beloved teddy bear Ted would come alive to be his best friend forever and it came true the very next day. Afterwards the scene shifts to the present day where Ted is now a bear who smoking pot and dating many girls. Meanwhile, John (Mark Wahlberg) has a job at the rental car agency and serious relationship with his girlfriend Lori (Mila Kunis). Somehow, it’s time for John, to choose between his best friend and his lover. My appreciation goes to Seth MacFarlane who made the script, directed the movie, voiced and motion-captured Ted. MacFarlane brings us to a whole new level of dimension that we never go before. It’s sometimes weird and another time is funny. Macfarlane would do anything to create laughter, breaking all boundaries and mocking almost everyone in the industry. In short, his humor works pretty sick and well! Now, let’s talk about Mark Wahlberg. All thiz time, I always think that Mark Wahlberg is always Mark Wahlberg in all of his movies. He seems only capable of delivering one same look, acting and character. But, in thiz movie, he gives me a different perspective. Eventually, Mark Wahlberg is one of the Actors who depend on his strong charisma and attractive personality. In fact, I also just realized that almost all his movies reach significant box office success. Thiz is an undeniable proof that people love him. The next in spotlight is Mila Kunis. Kunis is one true example of modern girls who can say anything she wants while still looking classy. She’s not afraid to look silly. Quite the opposite, she gives the impression of smart, flexible and fun. There are also some cameo appearances involving the old aged movie star Tom Skerritt, the Jazz singer Norah Jones and Flash Gordon himself Sam J. Jones. Actually, it’s quite refreshing to see a foul-mouthed teddy bear partying with 1980s sci-fi cult icon. Everything is just spiralling out of control and it seems that they are not afraid of being laughed at. Thiz is crazy in a very good way. In the end, what if I tell you that Seth MacFarlane initially intended to voice hi-tech Japanese robot cat, Mark Wahlberg was originally meant to play Nobita and the movie title should be “Doraemon”. Well, if you believe that, then you can accept anything, including thiz movie. It’s not as absurd as it sounds. Maybe sometimes the only way to stay sane is to go a little crazy ^_^
