Download Ted movie

When John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) was a young boy, all he wanted was to have a best friend and when he gets a teddy bear for Christmas, he makes a wish that the stuffed animal can come alive. When that actually happens, Ted the living teddy bear becomes an instant celebrity. Over 20 years later, however, John is a grown up with a long-term girlfriend Lori (Mila Kunis) and Ted is a pot-smoking, beer-guzzling troublemaker who insists on keeping John from ever growing up.

Analysis:
Anyone who has watched a single episode of Seth MacFarlane’s popular animated show “Family Guy” or its spin-offs know how funny and irreverent he is, but there’s one thing constantly stopping MacFarlane from really letting loose and that something is the FCC and the standards it sets for primetime television. The proverbial shackles are finally off as MacFarlane makes his feature film directorial debut with a high concept premise that might normally fit well into a PG Disney world but in his hands becomes something raunchy and debaucherous without losing sight of telling a solid story.

“Ted” starts as a classic Christmas fable (narrated by Patrick Stewart) about a young New England boy named John Bennett who wants nothing more than to have a best friend, something he finds in a teddy bear that magically comes to life, gaining them both immediate notoriety. Decades later, John (Mark Wahlberg) is working at a dead-end car rental job and is exactly the type of man-child we’ve seen in so many comedies lately. His normally understanding girlfriend, Lori (Mila Kunis), thinks his long-term friendship with his talking teddy is holding him back and makes an ultimatum that he needs to change his life, starting with his plush roommate.
