The Flick: When I first saw the trailer for "Ted" I distinctly remember thinking one word – stupid.  Thankfully I was wrong, as even though there is plenty of inane funny in "Ted," there’s also a ton of rich, clever and uber-topical humor that makes it a winner.  At first it’s hard to get past the whole talking teddy thing, but as a character Ted is treated like a real person throughout and eventually his furry form just becomes a side note.  Beyond the candid and raunchy comedy (and here in an Unrated it’s really fantastically foul!) what surprised me most about "Ted" were the very touching moments of drama sprinkled sparingly by helmer Seth MacFarlane – he’s got a knack for this material.  Leads Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis are decent enough, but best is the great work by an insane Giovanni Ribisi, a hilarious Matt Walsh and an inspired Sam “Flash Gordon” Jones.  Much better then it seems, the touching "Ted" is a funny stuff.       

Best Feature: Have to go with 'Teddy Bear Scuffle' which features and dissects the all out brawl between teddy Ted and human Mark Wahlberg – good solo show Mark!  (Also love learning that the red welts on his bare ass were CGI created!)

Best Hidden Gem: Hands down – the alternate scene of Mark and boss Matt Walsh in the Making-Of where Mark farts in the office during their meeting.  (I laughed so hard I cried – and so did Mark it seems!)

Worth the Moola: Middle finger to picture and sound – sometimes funny makes a Blu-ray picture perfect.
