Ted

Ted (Seth MacFarlane, 2012) is about a boy who wishes his teddy bear would come to life.  He does; the boy grows up, meets a girl.  The teddy bear, meanwhile, has ‘grown up’ too; he smokes pot, snorts coke, fucks Norah Jones, etc.  His voice is that of the writer and director Seth MacFarlane, and much depends on the ‘humour’ which you may (or may not continue to) perceive in the incongruity of the language used by a child’s toy.
First time in a film I’ve heard one girl call another a ‘cunt’.  Classy film: NOT.
