Family Guy on big screen

True to what works for him, MacFarlane takes no prisoners as jokes are made about almost all races, genders and pop culture figures. Per usual, MacFarlane incorporates music into the film and even has a Norah Jones cameo (singing with a pitchy Mark Wahlberg).
The movie is rated “R” (for “Raunchy”) for obvious reasons: Teddy bears shouldn’t be humping cash registers and smoking weed. At times, hearing a foul mouth come out of a cute, cuddly teddy bear might hurt the inner child’s soul.
“I saw a few parents with middle schoolers in here,” said audience member Terry Wright. “I think they saw a teddy bear and Mila Kunis’s innocent face and thought it was a family-friendly movie.”
Acting-wise, Wahlberg did a great job sticking to the loyal-to-my-best-friend-even-though-he’s-a-stuffed-animal character, and literally being a big kid throughout. Kunis quietly floated through the movie, sadly being upstaged by the voice of MacFarlane.
“It was hilarious,” said viewer Danni Palmer. “Seth MacFarlane and Mark Wahlberg should definitely tag team more.”
The comedic punches are thrown at the right time and sometimes thrown one too many times. As mentioned before, “Ted” is a movie with more lewd scenes than family scenes. If you’re a “Family Guy” fan, this should be common knowledge.
