All eyes on Seth MacFarlane's 'Ted' opening this week

Family Guy creator turns to movie directing debut

Family guy genius Seth MacFarlane makes his directorial debut at the box office this week with 'Ted' starring Mark Whalberg, Giovanni Ribisi and Mila Kunis.

As your eyes set on the movie poster you're instantly transported into a bathroom with a Teddy bear and a man standing next to each other in front of the urinals. Not a pretty picture, but silly enough to warrant attention because of the movie's visionary. Family Guy has been a cult TV series for the past decade and fans of the series will be eager to see MacFarlane's genius behind the camera. In fact, he's also in the movie as the voice of Ted, the animated bear / comedian. The story centres around a dysfunctional pair: a man and his teddy bear. Yes the bear comes to life after a childhood dream becomes true. It's the kind of 'Liar Liar' Jim Carrey spoof meets Pixar and…Mark Whalberg.

Check out the trailer that puts a cheesy, over-the-top Disney touch matched with the reassurance of Patrick Stewarts 'family friendly' voice. It's all in their, and it's likely to crack up an audience.
