"Ted"

Trish and I saw Ted this evening.

As the result of a childhood wish, John Bennett's teddy bear, Ted, came to life and has been by John's side ever since - a friendship that's tested when Lori, John's girlfriend of four years, wants more from their relationship.

Though I like Mark Wahlberg, I wasn't expecting much from this movie.  The Toronto Star gave it a good review, though (three out of four stars).

I was pleasantly surprised because it's actually quite a funny movie, very rude and crude at times.  I forgot right away that Ted wasn't real (ie that he was a teddy bear).  There are some hilarious cameos that were a surprise.  Ted and John get into a fight at one point and it's hilarious ... it's the best fight scene I've seen in a long time.



If you are looking for a funny movie, you should check it out.

Here are Trish and I after the movie.

I'm still on the fence about this one but I'm sure I'll end up seeing it eventually.

I like how the movie is mainly about a teddy bear but it's rated R.
