ABOUT THE MOVIE
WHO WILL DIG IT?
"Family Guy" fans, furries, folks who liked to position their sisters' Barbie dolls in compromising positions.
THREE GOOD REASONS
- 1The main character is a foul-mouthed, beer-swilling teddy bear.
- 2This is Seth MacFarlane's first live-action movie. So if you like "The Family Guy," "American Dad!" or "The Cleveland Show," you will dig this flick.
- 3Mark Wahlberg was hilarious when paired with Will Ferrell in "The Other Guys." Now just imagine him sharing the screen with a cuddly critter who swears like a sailor.
BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW
The teddy bear was invented after our 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt, went on a hunting trip to Mississippi in 1902. When his attendants cornered, clubbed, and lassoed a black bear so that the president could shoot it, Roosevelt refused, saying that the whole thing was unsportsmanlike. The tale was covered by every newspaper in the land, and the story inspired toymaker Morris Michtom to create what he called a "Teddy bear." By all accounts, there is little animal cruelty -- nor are there Theodore Roosevelt impressions -- in this movie.
