    The Avengers wasn't a comedy. It was an action flick. An action flick should NEVER have you looking at your watch. Any laughs you get out of an action flick is a plus.

    TED was a comedy with a really high concept storyline and mayyyybe a half dozen laugh out loud moments. I shall attempt to remember them....

    1. The line about Christmas being the time of year when the neighborhood kids beat up the Jewish kid.
    2. The kids all telling John to get lost... even the redheaded Jewish kid getting beaten up.
    3. The stripper poop routine.
    4. ............um........... ?

    I can't remember anything else. There's no quotable one liners, there's no classic scenes and the plot is a pretty basic rom-com man/boy staple. So yea... average forgettable high concept comedy.

    I just want to step aside a moment and convey my appreciation for this sentence.

    Saw it Monday. It wasn't the peak of comedic brilliance, but I didn't hate it. Had a few laugh-out-loud (with no one else in the theater) moments. Seriously...how does no one but me in the entire joint laugh at, "So I guess we both lost our furry little guys, huh?"
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    Fun flick, some great lines in there. I liked his interview at the grocery store, thought it was really funny.

    Now I am trying to figure out of The Demon is Gay. Maybe, the '70's version of the character.

    Not that it's needed, really, but here's some context.



    Yep. Totally gay.

    TED 2 and BOURNE Sequel Planned as Universal Pictures Focuses on Franchises and Animation | Collider

    was just thinking about how this was one of my faves this summer and I wanted to see it again. A sequel. Well, sign me up. Until McFarlane does some wrong...well, he can do no wrong. And yes Doc...Flash Gordon was a great movie, as the 60's Batman show was great television.
