Friday, 6/29/12: Seth MacFarlane’s “Ted“
“Ted” opens today and I’ve been counting down the days since I first saw the promo! For the record, I also loved “The Artist,” “Midnight in Paris,” “Slumdog Millionaire,” “The Sound of Music,” “West Side Story” and BOTH “Sex in the City” movies. If wanting to see “Ted” makes me wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
