Hard to find a bad review. Curious to see what Rotten Tomatoes shows by Saturday...

    Friday Box Office – R-Rated Surprise as TED and MAGIC MIKE Smash Expectations

    So, it appears the answer to the question “did I underestimate the blockbuster potential of Ted” is a giant “Oh Hell Yes.” From its first day in 3,239 locations the R-rated comedy from first-time film director Seth MacFarlane (the Family Guy guy) made an estimated $20.2 million. And this from a movie that was projected to earn only $25 million for its first weekend! With Friday’s huge win, Ted is now poised to take in double that by Sunday – a figure that would top The Hangover as the all-time highest debut from an R-rated (non-sequel) comedy. But Friday’s surprises were not limited to talking teddy bears. Magic Mike, the R-rated male-stripper movie starring Channing Tatum, was also a giant over-performer with an estimated $19.4 million from 2,930 venues. Again, that is just under what Magic Mike was projected to earn in its first three days. Meanwhile, Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection, in 2,161 locations, also had a bigger-than-expected first Friday, taking in an estimated $10.25 million for what should prove a $27 million opening weekend.

    Weekend Box Office – TED Takes R-Rated Comedy Title with $54.1 Million; MAGIC MIKE Second with $39.1 Million

    AWESOME.

    The theory that audiences would wait for the tentpole movies of July before opening their wallets went down in flames this weekend as two all-original movies (R-rated ones at that) delivered stellar openings. Ted and Magic Mike bested Brave by taking first and second place: nearly doubling their pre-weekend projections in the process and giving box office watchers a lot more to consider than the imminent arrival of The Amazing Spider-Man.

    I really liked it even more than I thought after having rewatched the red band trailer for months over and over@!

    Funny thing about most comedies these days...a few laughs and they are considered a success. Been a while since a movie had me laughing with such consistency, and the only time I wasn't is when the story needed some reality to move it forward. I could tell you all my fave moments, but just go see it. You WILL laugh. A lot. And now I have to go back and watch Flash Gordon(again) just to love it even more. MacFarlane can do no wrong at this point and I only hope he never 'Bill Murray' 's things up and decides to turn his back on comedy. Nice to see a movie that lives up to the expectations and my fanboy hype.

    Oh, and Kq disagreed with me, but I don't think this movie is about a boy who refuses to grow up. I think it's more about how girlfriends always make you forfeit the things you love...but I'm a bitter cynical person.

    Solid B with a number of good laughs, although still filled with the Mcfarlane trying to be too cool vibe that I knew he couldn't resist. Randomly throwing out references to current pop culture to try to draw a cheap laugh has been so overdone.

    see, you either like his style or don't. Make no mistake folks, if you aren't a Family Guy fan this ain't your movie. SM doesn not stray too far from the formula(just enough) that has brought him all his success so far. The cutaway gags still work for me, but your point is valid. Overdone or not...he's the master at it.
