Its similar.

The difference is Ryan is the only person that sees Wilfred as a person.

This move looks ehh. It might be really funny who knows....I know one thing, is that I won't be seeing this in theatres. Don't go to movies at all that much unless it's something that I REALLY want to see like Avengers, Dark Knight Rises etc. It just costs too much to go to the movies. Especially now w/ the 3D Imax stuff, you could be paying around $15-20 for a ticket. Ripoff. Sometimes you have to make a choice and decided just how much is enough.

Im pretty sure alot of people feel the same way now.

While alot of big movies are technically making more money than movies from years ago, its because ticket prices are so much higher, not because more tickets are being sold. In fact less tickets are being sold.

Alot of smaller, mid range movies for adults are not being made much anymore because people dont go to see them in theaters and they cant jack up the prices with 3D and IMAX.

Mosteverything today is marketed and packaged with as much mass market appeal as possible, which in a way, makes it more bland.

I also think this would be much funnier if Seth McFarlane wasn't the voice over.

His voice is very distinctive. When I hear it I think Family Guy, as do probably most people. I think he should've just been a writer/producer etc, and had someone else do the voice over.

I'm sure they think a lot of people will see it because he is the voice and Family Guy has such a huge following. With him being the voice we know this will have a certain humor to it whereas if he is a writer/producer it's hard to know for sure how much he is really involved.

IMDB lists McFarlane as the director and writer so im pretty sure he was 100% involved.

I meant IF he were not the voice. But the average person upon hearing his voice will know that he is really involved in the show and that they can expect the humor and style of jokes they enjoy from Family Guy prompting more people to see it.

Unless in the trailer it would say "from the creator of Family Guy"

then everyone would know who's invovled, esp the college age crowd.

Well, this I didn't expect...

Ebert gives it 3 1/2 out of 4 stars.

The funniest movie character so far this year is a stuffed teddy bear. And the best comedy screenplay so far is "Ted," the saga of the bear's friendship with a 35-year-old manchild. I know; this also was hard for me to believe.

Well Seth MacFarlane is obviously creates some funny stuff so the comedic reviews are expected but it is kind of surprising that these reviews are also seemingly praising the story and other aspects that make a good comedy movie instead of suggesting its a stupid movie with funny jokes. Might be reminiscent of the crossover success South Park had with their movie.

Saw it yesterday, and my friend's concern that it'd be a "trailer movie" where all the laughs were revealed already was one I shared as well.

Wrong. It was fucking hilarious. I'm usually lukewarm on McFarlane's style but he hit the right notes with the movie. Ridiculously awesome cameos, funny pop culture references, and once you suspend the disbelief of a freaking magical talking stuffed animal, the situation became "real".

I guess if I had an issue with the movie is I understand the cameos/pop culture jokes might get lost on people, especially people around my age, and the Boston accent kind of seemed forced at times. Unless you are a real stickler for not paying movie ticket prices, it's worth seeing on the screen but 100% certainly worth a watch when it's out on DVD/online.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I wouldn't mind seeing Magic Mike. I just don't tend to be one of those that ogles over pretty boys (even though, I wouldn't mind doing more than ogling over Channing Tatum). I just don't like falling into the typical female OMG-I-HAVE-TO-SEE-THOSE-CUTE-ASSES!!!1! That, and most of the friends I have to go out and do things with are guys. My female friends are all married or have kids to worry about.

I'd agree with that. It sounded at times that Wahlberg was severely overemphasizing his accent because he/McFarlane think it's what people expect him/Bostonians to sound like. Even to a Bostonian, that sounded "Cheers"-fake.

Love Family Guy. Love. It. This had about half a dozen really funny moments, and a whole bunch of meh for me. I know, I'm the minority on this from what I'm reading. I may watch it again when it comes out on DVD to make sure I didn't just miss the boat on it. It's possible. The only copy online was really shitty. Fuzzy, and the sound wasn't great.

Nah, I thought it was really meh as well.. And I also love Family Guy.

For a movie that relied on the suspension of logic and common sense to work, it just didn't come across that way. If that makes sense. I have no problems putting my mind in a bottle for 2 hours and watching a silly movie without thinking about why it doesn't make any sense. But something about this one just kinda grated on me in that regard.

It had its moments. There were some jokes that really were LOL-worthy; it also had some that fell flat. It is live action Family Guy. The thing for me is, Family Guy is contained within a 30-minute segment. I don't care for the Star Wars Family Guy movies - it's too much.

I enjoyed it. It has a goofy premise (talking teddy bear) but at heart it's just a movie about childhood buddies when one is a bad influence on the other and whether or not we're responsible for ourselves, etc.,. It's funny watching a teddy bear do bad things, Wahlberg's okay in it, Mila Kunis I'd watch if she did nothing but sat there in a trenchcoat and stared at the screen... It's not Shakespeare but it was a decent way to kill 90 minutes in air conditioning. Plus it's narrated by Patrick Stewart.

NBCU’s Steve Burke Says He Wants ‘Ted 2′ “As Soon As We Can” (http://www.deadline.com/2012/09/nbcu-steve-burke-universal-ted/)

Sequels and animation are at the top of the agenda for Universal‘s film production – a business that’s “not for the faint of heart” — NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke told analysts today at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media, Communications and Entertainment Conference. “We’ve had our ups and downs,” he says. But he hopes to stabilize things by promoting “as many franchises as we can.” He vows that “you’ll see future Bourne films” following the success of The Bourne Legacy. He adds that Universal has “dusted off” its American Pie franchise and “we’d like to see a Ted 2 as soon as we can.” He’s upbeat about upcoming sequels to Despicable Me and Fast And Furious. In addition, Burke says he wants Universal to have more animation. “The key is to go from making one film every 18 months to making two a year.”

Late to the thread (A Q that defeated it's predecessor, no less).

I thought it was hysterical. I've been wishing for my friends to die of Lou Gehrig disease for weeks now.

Though to be honest, the best part wasn't really the movie. Steve Moore (the center for Mizzou) is always out and about in Columbia. We've drank with him a few times and he's just a badass guy. In either event, we saw him come in and sit behind us with some chick. So when they're at the fancy dinner and Wahlburg orders some Cristal and says "Hey, all those rich black guys can't be wrong" Moore just says in the most disgusted voice possible "Man...what the fuck!?"

I dunno why, it just cracked me the hell up. Steve Moore loved him some asian jokes, etc... for the rest of the movie, but do not disparage black dudes and their affinity for Cristal because Steve Moore will fuck you up.

Finally watched it tonight. It was ok. Had a few ROFL moments. Mainly the Sam Jones /Flash Gordon stuff. That was hilarious to me because I'm also a huge fan of that flick.

I know it's his Schtick, but sometimes Mcfarlane goes overboard with his pop culture jokes. I also felt like there wasn't enough story for a complete movie. The last 30 minuets with the creepo father and son was pretty meh and dragged.

Me too and the Flash Gordon scenes were one the few parts I liked. Was Giovanni Ribisi a freak or what? Dancing to Tiffany? ROFL
