Ted - Film Review

Home > Everywhere > Movie Reviews | Film Reviews
Published August 30th 2012


Upon hearing about Ted, the first thing I thought was "Family Guy".

Anyone who thought the same, hey, you can't blame us. Not only is Ted the creation of the brainbox behind Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane, many of the voices behind his loveable, crude characters are now seen on the big screen.

The voice of our fluffy protagonist is that of Seth himself, who also voices Peter Griffin; Mila Kunis who voices heavily oppressed, geeky, gaudy Meg is now the subject of everybody's gaze, happily on the arm of John Bennet (played by Mark Wahlberg, of The Social Network fame).

Whilst the film itself has the same fart jokes and elements of the slapstick people know to expect from Family Guy, Ted shows the real hardships of life, from love, to growing up and facing reality with a barrel of laughs in-between.

There are references within to Family Guy as Ted points out that he does not sound like Peter Griffin, they see a man at a party that looks like Van Wilder from the 2002 self titled film, who just happens to be Ryan Reynolds, who played Wilder himself.

Whilst Ted's plot in itself is fairly simple, it is the comedy people are attracted by and MacFarlane doesn't disappoint one bit.

Definitely worth the watch.
