Due to arrive in UK cinemas on 1st August is Seth MacFarlane’s move into the movie world with his hilarious and highly offensive Ted. Everything I have seen so far indicates that MacFarlane’s often genius comedy is once again going to have viewers in agony with laughter, and even though the clips are not laugh out loud funny, MacFarlane’s incredible talent of drawing you into his characters will no doubt make Ted painfully funny as the film moves forward.
The animation for the filthy mouthed Ted is superb, and Mark Wahlberg appears to be having the time of his life! When Wahlberg is on form, the actor can be one of the funniest guys around, and it looks like Ted is all set to prove MacFarlane most certainly can make the jump from the genius of Family Guy and American Dad, to the big screen.
Seth MacFarlane directs, and co-writes with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild. Mark Whalberg plays the poor man who can’t let go of his talking teddy, and Seth MacFarlane voices the foul mouthed little git. Mila Kunis plays the love interest while other names includes Giovanni Ribisi, Patrick Warburton, Joel McHale and Laura Vandervoort.
Ted arrives in UK cinemas 1st August.

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.
