Ted (#54)

I did not want to watch this. I don’t really go in for low humor and find that Seth MacFarlane frequently pushes beyond what I find funny. I was proven wrong in my anti-Ted judgements though, because I actually found it to be quite funny and with a surprising heart. Mila Kunis has finally convinced me that I like her and I was also impressed by Mark Wahlberg (though I pretty much always love him). Despite the crude moments, MacFarlane imbues all his characters with unexpected reality and depth and keeps the script peppered with enough pop culture references to keep things light and fun. I get why all the critics lovedTed because I definitely enjoyed it too.
