You may love your teddybear to bits but do you really want him to come to life? John Bennett wished his teddy bear would come to life and his childhood wish came true. Great for a child but not so good when you are an adult.
John’s teddy bear, appropriately named Ted, has been by his side since boyhood and its testing his other friendships, noatably that with Lori, John’s girlfriend of four years.
Want to see the outcome? Then go see “Ted” starring Mark Wahlberg as John Bennett. Ted is voiced by Seth MacFarlane of family guy fame. Seth MacFarlane also wrote the story and co-wrote the screenplay, so, as you can guess, this is NOT a children’s movie. There is nudity, profanity, alchol and drug use in this film.
Lacking in nudity and profanity, but including reference to drug use, is another Teddy related product. Teddy Bear’s Picnic is a murder mystery game by ITM Games. Priced at £18 this is a dinner party murder mystery game for 6 Players.
