In her bi-weekly column, Ms. Silver Screen reviews Seth Macfarlane's jump to the big screen. She writes, "When it was announced that “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane was doing a movie I automatically assumed that it was going to be full of fart jokes, profanity, and lots of obscure pop culture references. I was, right, for the most part, but maybe that isn’t such a bad thing. TED is about John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) and his best friend in the whole world, Ted (voiced by MacFarlane, of course). As a boy, John wished one fateful night that his friend Ted could come alive and they could really be best friends. Having a walking, talking teddy bear is fine when you’re young I suppose, but having a pot-smoking, unemployed, couch-surfing teddy bear when you’re supposed to be a grown up, not so much."
