Ted is Real and Its a True American Film!

09.21.2012 – Ted is an American comedy film, co-produced, co-written, and it’s a live action directorial debut by Seth MacFarlane, popularly known for his adult related animation series in The Family Guy.

The movie stars Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis with Seth MacFarlane providing the voice for Ted the living plush bear.

The film has a surprising cameos and special appearances by some familiar actors that inspired the characters setting from the 1980s and 1990s.

The film had an original opening date of July 13, 2012 which was pushed to July 29, 2012 in North America to avoid competition with Ice Age 4.

The premise of the film about a boy who wished to have his Teddy Bear as his friend for life came true and grows up having that same company up to his adulthood. It’s romance versus bromance as its plot twist and about going through the changes in growing up as a responsible adult going through a serious relations which also having your own direction in life to choose from.

The narration of Patrick Stewart to the film adds flavour to the story that truly is not worth branded being x rated in the Philippines which is the highest grossing English language R-18 film in North America. The only reason why it was given an x rating because of the racial humour and the dialogue which for some of us in the Philippines would have it sounded offending coming from a very conservative country.

There was minimal nudity given that this film was made generally for adult audience and for those who really have a clearer perspective in finding American entertainment somewhat acceptable than being criticized for its mild adult material.

This is not your usual comedy that the Philippine mainstream audience would accept given that not everyone would understand some of the jokes in the context of an American humour. Some might find it offensive but not entirely racist as this film is entirely harmless. The humour is based from the reality of what is America is and given the respect of how Seth MacFarlane wrote this film you’ll find it entertaining and visually funny.

Overall it has some hits and misses but in the entire part of the film this brings some 190s nostalgia for those whose familiar with Flash Gordon and those who grew up owning a Cabbage Patch Kids doll. The actors definitely hit it up especially Mark Wahlberg who is more noticeable in action films doing a comedy with a TV sitcom setting.

Ted opens in selected cinemas in the Philippines nationwide with an R-18 rating on October 3, 2012. The film is produced by Media Rights Capital and distributed internationally by Universal Pictures which is released under Solar Entertainment in the Philippines!
