In case that Red Band Trailer for “Family Guy” guy Seth MacFarlane’s “Ted” was too much for your little brain to handle, here’s a softer, green band aka SFW version that actually lays out the film’s plot. Yes, there is an actual plot beyond the fact that a teddy bear comes to life and everyone pretty much just accepts that, well, a teddy bear has come to life. On a personal note, listening to MacFarlane do Ted’s voice and all I can think of is Peter Griffin, though I guess listening to a Peter Griffin-ish Ted is probably better than a Stewie Griffin-ish Ted. That murderous little kid can get old pretty fast.
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane brings his boundary-pushing brand of humor to the big screen for the first time as writer, director and voice star of Ted. In the live action/CG-animated comedy, he tells the story of John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish…and has refused to leave his side ever since.
Starring Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Joel McHale, Giovanni Ribisi, Seth MacFarlane as Ted.
