The Western Star - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

Sun­day, 7mate, 9.40pm, MA15+ (2012)

From Seth MacFar­lane (Fam­ily Guy, A Mil­lion Ways to Die in the West) comes this film about Bos­ton stoner John (Mark Wahlberg) and his foul-mouthed best mate, a talk­ing teddy bear named Ted (voiced by MacFar­lane). Af­ter John chooses to hang out with his stuffed buddy over girl­friend Lori (Mila Ku­nis) one too many times, things start to fall apart. If you know MacFar­lane’s work you’ll know the type of crude and ab­surd com­edy to ex­pect, though freed of the net­work-TV shack­les MacFar­lane cer­tainly makes the most of his MA rat­ing – the pro­fan­ity com­ing thick and fast. Ted dishes up its share of chuck­les for an hour or so be­fore run­ning out of steam and even­tu­ally go­ing off the rails in the last half hour.
