Opening in theatres this Friday from director Seth MacFarlane and Universal Pictures an unusually loving story about a man and his “Ted”.
This film tells the story of John a young boy who grew up without many friends. One Christmas he receives a big, huggable teddy bear he names Ted, and then wishes for Ted to be real. The next morning his wish comes true.
Fast forward as John (Mark Wahlberg) works for a car agency and is in a relationship with Lori (Mila Kunis). Ted has also grown up into John’s t.v. watching, pot smoking, rough housing pal who shares a deep admiration for the 1980’s Flash Gordon. Lori wants John to be so much more and feels Ted is in the way of that.
