Mila Braves The Man-Child... And His Bear
Ted, the rated R comedy about a man and his raunchy teddy bear takes audiences by surprise this weekend as it climbed the charts to number one.
Apparently, watching a movie about an incurable man-child is more than a little entertaining, especially if he comes with his own talking teddy bear who uses the F-bomb more than Mark Wahlberg himself.
Ted, the feature film debut of Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy, ranked number one in the country this weekend, grossing an estimated $52.5 million in box office returns, according to Deadline Hollywood.

The Channing Tatum movie that was inspired by a true story of working as a male stripper, Magic Mike, grossed an estimated $38 million at the box office bringing it to number two. That’s still a lot of cash for one naked Channing, but not enough to beat a talking bear. Come on ladies, where's your focus...?
