A comedy like Ted feels like such a breath of fresh air -- a film that takes chances not just with its premise (a living teddy bear with a predilection for hard partying) but with a sense of humor that's prepared to go to any length (or depth) to get a laugh.
Seth MacFarlane's Ted joins the ranks of Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle and Observe and Report among razor-sharp cultural satires cleverly disguised as dumb comedies.
On June 29, a movie about a talking teddy bear, Ted, will be in theaters across North America. Ted stars Mark Wahlberg (The Big Hit) as a grown man who lives with Ted, a teddy bear brought to life by a magic wish. Will Ted make you laugh? Will Ted make you feel guilty for laughing? As a service, with an early review, we answer every question that you could possibly have about Ted.

This past week I came across a large number of weight quotes attributed to various starlets that I feel need debunking -- both for their sake and for ours.
Hollywood always seems to be a little behind the times. Twice this year the big screen has explored a sexual concept that's almost at the ho-hum stage...
Friends With Benefits turned out to be the most gender-balanced romantic comedy I've seen in a long time -- I might even compare it vaguely with When Harry Met Sally.
Summer may be a time to chill, but when it comes to movies, some like it hot. The romantic comedy, Friends With Benefits, may sound smart and snappy with sex that sizzles, but in the end, the message is old fashioned: never let her go.
