Currently in theaters and at the top of the weekend box office chart, TED is the feature film directorial debut of FAMILY GUY creator (and equal-opportunity offender) SETH MacFARLANE and tells the off-beat story of a teddy bear who comes to life as a foul-mouthed, pot-smoking, skirt-chasing plushie invading the life of his grown-up owner. The film easily slips into humor that could offend almost anyone and, rightfully, has an R rating from the MPAA. Written by MacFARLANE (who also provides the voice of the titular bear), the cast features MARK WAHLBERG, MILA KUNIS, GIOVANNI RIBISI, JESSICA STROUP and ALEX BORSTEIN.
During a recent press conference, MacFARLANE admitted that TED deserved its R-rating but argued that it was all for language and the actual content was more tame than his FAMILY GUY television series. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO) LANGUAGE NSFW!
