Directed, co-produced, and co-written by Seth MacFarlane (creator of “Family Guy”), “Ted” is the 2012 comedy film of the year and also Seth’s feature-length directorial debut. Released in various parts of the world in both July/August, it is currently the highest grossing R-rated film of 2012, as well as the 9th highest grossing film of 2012.
It’s so good; it even overtook 2009’s “Hangover”.
Starring Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis, the story revolves around John (played by Mark Wahlberg) who once received a large teddy bear for Christmas. That teddy bear is Ted.
And because of some stroke of magic, Ted comes to life, and becomes John’s best friend.
Eventually, John grows up (or at least he sort of grows up), pursues a four-year-long relationship with Lori (played by Mila Kunis) and plans on marrying her. But Lori feels that John can’t move ahead with his life with Ted around – Ted, who’s now a dirty, vulgar, obnoxious wastrel. And yes, despite John being a working adult, Ted is still around.
So, simply put, he has to choose between Lori and Ted:

Cue hilarity, vulgarities, and absurdities. You could say that we’ve been anticipating this one since we first saw the trailer. We’d definitely like to see how this one turns out!
Ted will be released at a cinema near you on 18th October 2012 (Thursday).
