The movie Ted was just released on June 29, 2012.
The film was both written and directed by Seth MacFarlane, who also stars in it (as the voice of Ted), along with Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Joel McHale, Giovanni Ribisi, and Patrick Warburton.
Although the 106 minute film may look like something to bring the kids to see due to the animated bear character, it definitely is not, and is rated R for "crude and sexual content, pervasive language, and some drug use."
Some of MacFarlane's other titles you may recognize include the TV series American Dad!, Family Guy, and The Cleveland Show.
MacFarlane also made headlines recently when he provided the funds to acquire some 800 boxes of material from the famous scientist and astronomer Carl Sagan, which were then donated to the Library of Congress. He'll also be doing a followup to Sagan's classic 1980 TV series "Cosmos: A Personal Journey, " titled "Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey."
