|Cute but Not Cuddly|
|With the release of 'Ted' 10 fuzzy friends you'd be better
By Jeff Michael Vice
There's a reason why we're encouraged to get rid of our toys when we get older. If you believe what your parents (or mental health professionals) say, associating with your action figures, stuffed animals and other childhood "pals" too late in life may impair your ability to relate to real people.
For further proof of this, look no further than the new live-action comedy-fantasy "Ted," in theaters June 29.
The movie follows John (Mark Wahlberg), a man whose best friend is, quite literally, a walking, talking teddy bear (a CGI-animated creation that is voiced by Seth MacFarlane). Only this is no sweet-natured Winnie the Pooh. No, this is a foul-mouthed, foul-tempered and dirty-minded teddy whose bad behavior may mess up things with John's love interest, Lori (Mila Kunis).
