Watch a short trailer for Ted on
the digital newsstand version of
series hits it head-on with honesty, wit and
pathos. Written, directed and executive-pro-duced by and starring Lena Dunham, the
show is a frank exploration of post-college life
in New York in the early 21st century. Be
aware of harsh language, adult content and
of emotional power that results from the subtle way the Disney-Pixar brigade has
approached the dimensionality of the oceanic
deep. As Avatar proved, the spatial mysteries
of watery currents and floating worlds are
exactly where 3-D explorers were born to
boldly go.” The combo pack also comes with
a Blu-ray disc, standard DVD and digital
copy. In any form, it’s a funny, heartwarming
story for young and old. G

A VERITABLE SMORGASBORD of treats
awaits those looking to beef up their holiday
entertainment. Here are a few of the new

Lisa Schwarzbaum says, “What’s new—and
cause for optimism in the whole hustle to
3-D-ify movies that previously worked perfectly well in old-fogy 2-D—is the deepening
Ted. How many kids have wished their teddy
bears would come to life? John Bennett’s
(Mark Wahlberg) did, and became his best
friend well into adulthood, much to the chagrin of his girlfriend, Lori (Mila Kunis). It
wouldn’t seem a problem to hang onto a cute
little talking teddy bear, but Ted (voiced by
Seth Mac Farlane, who also wrote and directed)
happens to be extremely crude and inappropriate. While the movie is hilarious, the language is foul, and drug use is depicted and
nudity displayed. Watch without the kids. R
Girls. Where other shows may have hinted at
what life was like for single women in their
20s trying to make it on their own, this HBO
Also available are Hope Springs (PG- 13),
Pitch Perfect (PG- 13, 12/18) and other films,
television shows and gift sets.—Steve Fisher
