There’s more than one person who would tell you that I can be more than a little funny and daring at times. I try to keep the madness to a minimum here on the blog ’cause the dang thing is read by my daughter – the pastor’s wife! And it has my photo and other identifiers on it.
One of these says some of you will find a password in your email for the totally anonymous blog I’m going to get around to starting one of these says.
Ok now let’s get on topic about Ted. As you read on my last post, Ted is a Badass. You did note that the B was capitalized, and the word italicized right?
Ted made me laugh. There was nothing that little near wouldn’t say or do. But it also made me cry too.
The movie opens with 8 year old John Bennett, a really nice kid that no one wants to play with.
On Christmas morning he unwraps his new best friend – a teddy near he names Ted. John instantly loves his near, and makes a wish that be be real. The next morning Ted is real, and an instant celebrity. But even with all his celebrity he and John remain best friends.
Now it’s 27 years later. Ted’s celebrity has faded. John’s girlfriend has just about had it worg him and beer swilling, potty mouthed stuffed pal.
I don’t do spoilers, so now you have to buy a ticket, or sneak in or something.
And do enjoy the movie’s theme song. It’s simply wonderful.
