If you've been patiently waiting for a FAMILY GUY movie (which seem inevitable), this ain't it, but the show's creator Seth MacFarlane is helming this adult comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis. TED focuses on the relationship of Wahlberg and Kunis' characters, and Wahlberg's lifelong friend, a talking teddy bear voiced by MacFarlane. Check out the cuss-filled NSFW trailer below. I laughed at more than a few bits, but I'm also a big FAMILY GUY fan, so there's that. And the "Okay, alright, so that's where we'll draw the line" bit is almost John Candy-like, which is definitely a good thing. Tell us your thoughts in the comments.
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.
Born and raised in Dallas, Mark has been a movie critic since 1994, with reviews featured in print, radio and National TV. In 2001 he started the Entertainment section of the Herorealm website, where he contributed film reviews and celebrity interviews until 2004. After three years of service there, he started Bigfanboy.com, which has become one of the Dallas film community's leading information websites. Bigfanboy hosts several movie screenings in the Texas area, and works closely with film and TV studios and promotional partners to host exciting events and contests. The site also features a variety of rare celebrity and filmmaker interviews, and Bigfanboy.com regularly covers the film festival circuit as well. In addition to Hollywood reporting, Mark has worked for many years as an advertising and sci-fi/comic book artist. Clients have included Lucasfilm Ltd., Topps Trading Cards, The Dallas Mavericks and The Dallas Stars. He currently catalogs rare comic books and movie memorabilia for Heritage Auctions, and runs the Dallas Comic Con and Sci-Fi Expo conventions, but remains an avid moviegoer and cinema buff.
