Three Reasons CBM Fans Should See TED
As if a foul-mouthed teddy bear that likes to smoke pot and drink isn't enough, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane's TED includes a few things for CBM Fans as well
Seth McFarlane's TED hit theaters last night, and I have to say that it was pretty darn funny. Seth McFarlane is probably best known for creating FAMILY GUY, but he steps up to the plate as co-writer and director. The film stars Mark Wahlberg and FAMILY GUY regular Mila Kunis.
Not only does the film feature a foul-mouthed, pot-smoking teddy bear, but it also make light of child stars, hookers, Boston women, Asians, Jews, Muslims and almost every other race known to man. TED also includes a few things directed specifically to comic book movie fans. Here are the three big ones... There may have been others, but I was too busy laughing to notice.
For X-Men Fans the film is narrated by Patrick Stewart, X-Man fans favorite Professor X. You'll definitely hear things that you never thought would come out of Professor X's mouth!
Ryan Reynolds Fans will get a kick out of the film as well. I didn't even realize he was in the film, but the three or four scenes that he is in are absolutely hillarious. You will definitely NOT look at Ryan Reynolds, the Green Lantern, or Dead Pool the same way... You'll probably like the scenes even if you AREN'T a Ryan Reynolds fan.
Superman Fans get probably the funniest clip out of the movie. Granted, it's at the very end of the film, but it's absolutely hillarious. You'll get a laugh regarless of how you feet about 2006's SUPERMAN RETURNS.
The film is laugh out loud funny for the first half, but it flounders a bit towards the end, wrapping up with a car chase and rescue of all things. If you're a fan of McFarlane's FAMILY GUY, and aren't easily offended by pervasive language (plenty of "F" bombs to go around) or stuffed animals having sex with hot women, you'll probably get a few laughs out of TED.
TED is R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language and some drug use.
