Funny or Die has premiered the first trailer for Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s feature film directorial debut Ted, the story of John Bennett, a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a wish and has refused to leave his side. But, of course, Ted is totally filthy, smokes pot, drinks profusely, and humps stuff. Now, don’t get me wrong, I enjoy Family Guy pretty well, though I would never count myself among its biggest fans. But this? I honestly think it works better as a trailer than it will as a feature length movie. I could be way off the mark, of course, but I just don’t know if the idea of a potty-mouthed teddy bear voiced by Peter Griffin can carry a whole film for me. What do you guys think?
Ted comes out July 13, 2012.
