I I <3 Ted!
I caught a free screening in Manhattan this past Wednesday. Despite a long and tiring work day I choose to take the hour long trip to Mid-Town and took a chance on Ted.
So Glad I did too! The film delivers a laugh a minute. Filled with 80's references and a side splitting ongoing Flash Gordon joke that's nostalgic and reliably funny, especially for 30 somethings like me. Ted is the friend I wish I had, funny, perverted and oh so huggable.
The movie is truly about friendship and coming of age and despite it's shallow plot it executes it's goal (making you laugh) with a comedic pace that definitely merits the time you'll spend watching it. It will require some suspension of all reality on your part but then again what did you expect from a movie about a living, walking, talking, beer drinking, pot smoking, cursing, fighting and lady loving teddy bear?
The acting is good and Mark W. is amazing. This film is definitely not for sheltered kids.
