The world of Hollywood was reminded for the fact that a movie does not necessarily need to have a story about comedy, young and adult love, sex, drama, or horror just to break the existing smash hit record and that fact was evidenced by the movie entitled “Ted”. The said movie surpassed the beliefs and anticipations of the movie industry for it to get the first rank in the list and to be the number one movie in America.
Ted is an American comedy film for the year 2012 that stars Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis. It is produced, co-written and directed by Seth MacFarlane. Seth McFarlane is the creator of the “Family Guy”. Patrick Warburton, Jessica Stroup and Giovanni Ribisi are also part of the supporting cast of the movie.
Seth McFarlane brought a brand new taste of a funny movie in the silver screen because he was also one of the writers of Ted. He also voiced the character of Ted, a real life teddy bear because of the lonely main character’s wish and it became true because coincidentally, a star fell from up above.
The opening record for an original rated R comedy movie that was held by “The Hangover” until that time was crushed by Ted. There are some figures that were showed but nothing is yet official about the real figure that the movie took. On the other hand, even though there is no final and official figure, it was really a big number that also states that they won from their movie rival “Magic Mike”, which stars by Channing Tatum and was expected to be on the first rank among the showing movies.
The teddy bear whose mouth is full of foul words got the first ranking in the list for the box-office over the weekend. According to studio estimates, the movie got an outstanding opening record because they do they open as the number one movie with an amount of $54.1 million. On the other hand, the movie directed by Steven Soderbergh and starred and co-produced by Channing Tatum about the tale of a male stripper who put on a show to earn money and to provide pleasure, strongly debuted at the second rank with the amount of $39.2 million. It was a big shock for everyone especially to the supporters of Magic Mike because they considered it as the most anticipated movie of summer.
The story of the movie Ted is just basically about the character of John Bennett, Mark Wahlberg, who was a matured man who was with his teddy bear best friend. The teddy bear became a real life teddy bear when John Bennett made a wish when he was a child. That’s it. The result of his wish is the teddy bear.
On the other hand, the movie of Channing Tatum got the title as the most and best reviewed movie of the weekend. They do have a 79 percent critical average on Rotten Tomatoes while the 69 percent was got by the movie Ted.
