Last night we decided to rent Ted – we’d both heard it was a pretty funny movie and wanted to give it a try.
Director: Seth MacFarlane
Runtime: 1 hour, 46 minutes
Plot Summary (from IMDb): John makes a Christmas miracle happen by bringing his one and only friend to life, his teddy bear. The two grow up together and John must then choose to stay with his girlfriend or keep his friendship with his crude and extremely inappropriate teddy bear, Ted.
Ok, I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting from this movie. I had heard that it was funny, which it was, but it seemed to lack that special something that makes it the kind of funny movie that you buy and watch over and over. I think the funniest part was the “Thunder Song” that the John and Ted sing together because they’re scared of it:
When you hear the sound of thunder, don’t you get too scared. Just grab your thunder buddy and say these magic words: “Fuck you, thunder! You can suck my dick! You can’t get me thunder ’cause you’re just God’s farts!” [blow raspberries]
Google it… seriously, it’s funny. In fact, Mike says he might sing it with Shadow the next time we get a good thunder-storm. This movie has A LOT of cussing in it, so if you’re easily offended, you probably don’t want to watch it. It’s definitely Seth MacFarlane humor (he wrote, directed, and starred in it)… all in all pretty funny, but probably not worth spending money on.
- Theater: This means the movie is awesome. Go see this movie in the theater – well worth the $100 you’ll spend for a night out to see it on the big screen!
- On Demand: Since no one actually rents movies anymore, this category has changed to On Demand. This means it’s a great movie, but it is as good at home as it is in the theater and worth seeing a little sooner.
- TV: This means the movie is ok. Wait for it to show up on HBO and see it for free.
- Skip It: Movie sucks, don’t waste your time.
