I’m willing to guess that Seth MacFarlane‘s first live-action featured film, Ted, is going to really appeal to those that enjoy his show, Family Guy. I was never a fan of the show, mostly because the jokes just never stuck with me. Admittedly I chuckled at a few skits here and a few skits there, but I never actually bothered sitting down and watching a full show through, only because I could barely make it past the first 10 minutes.
Ted looks to be the same. The trailer features stars Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and MacFarlane himself (as Ted the bear) spewing off some vulgar dialogue, hoping to garner some laughs from the audience. Some of the jokes are funny, but most of them feel like they’re going for a target audience that doesn’t include me.
I’ll see the film because I enjoy watching Wahlberg act like a complete idiot, but I doubt I’m going to enjoy myself completely. Poor Mila Kunis looks bored out of her mind…
Ted opens in theaters on July 13th, 2012.
