Seth MacFarlane directs My Dinner With Ted.
Apparently not content with overseeing 75 percent of Fox's Animation Domination Sunday nights, Seth MacFarlane has decided to take his talents to the multiplex as well. Today brings the release of the Family Guy creator's live-action filmmaking debut Ted, about a young boy's magical wish that results in his loveable stuffed teddy bear coming to life. But before you accuse MacFarlane of getting soft in his old age, be aware that the film's family-friendly aura lasts only as long as its pre-credits prologue. Because, as with so many things, once Ted (voiced by MacFarlane) and his boy John (Mark Wahlberg) grow up, they ain't so cute anymore... and neither is the movie.
