You know at the end of Toy Story 3 when Andy makes his way to College, leaving his toys behind… have you ever wondered what it would’ve been like if he took Buzz and Woody with him? Well wonder no more. Seth MacFarlane, creator of the Family Guy and American Dad, brings his unique comedy wand over his first feature length movie with some amazing results. A young boy John makes a wish that his teddy bear Ted would come life and magically it does. What seems like a wonderful Christmas movie smacks you right in the face when years later a grown up John (Mark Wahlberg) spews cereal over himself and Ted is smoking… from a pipe. Tension rises between John and his girlfriend Lori (Mila Kunis) who says unless Ted moves out, they won’t have a future.
In typical MacFarlane fashion, this trailer has one funny clip after another and the tone rarely gives in. Highlights from the trailer include Ted driving and ‘scratching’ another car while tweeting, the way he ‘beeps’ at a supermarket check-out counter and the ever mighty, hard man Wahlberg gets an ass whooping like no other. And if you thought the R-rated trailer pushed some boundaries…. check out the red band trailer below.
Ted chuckles his way to the UK on 3rd August.
