Submitter: So, it turns out that what people really want to see at the theater is a foul-mouthed Teddy Ruxpin knock-off with the voice of East Coast Brian Peter Griffin

That's the Family Guy voice it's closest to... though it has an east coast accent to it, where Brian does not.

There's nothing else out there worth seeing. I'm surprised the Avengers is still in the theaters. It's been out almost two months.

Ted's voice always sounded like an exact mashup of Peter and Brian. Which makes since, since it's Seth McFarlane after all.

Took my dad to see Avengers yesterday, I was surprised how full the theater was for a 2 month old movie. We actually had to look for seats next to each other.

Saw it last night with my lady friend. Definitely brought the lols. Was actually expecting it to be more raunchy and there were a few parts I felt genuinely emotionally invested in a talking teddy bear.

I never got this. I, like most Americans, have air conditioning. If it's that hot and the air conditioning works I'm not going to leave said air conditioning to go somewhere else unless I absolutely have to or there's something that I really really want to go do. Seeing a random shiatty movie ain't on the list.

Also, Seth McFarlane sucks and his stuff is usually enjoyed by people with an IQ of potato.

Some people don't want to be cooped up in their houses all day, so they want somewhere to go. Since the theaters are nice and cool, a movie is a good summertime activity when it's particularly hot. That's why the AC matters.

Horrible storms on Friday led to massive power failures for a sizable chunk of the midwest and northeast. I still do not have power. Since my house is on a well, that also means no water.

Not enough to get me into a theater, but when it hits DVD, it might be worth a buy.

No, it is a must see. It is hilarious! Please, every one that loves family guy should see it. And everyone that just wants to laugh. I laughed so much yesterday when I saw it. I am so glad it is making a lot of money. It is good that GI joe was moved to next year. If it came out on Friday like it was supposed to and Ted came out on July 13th then it might not have done as well.

Zoolander was a pretty good movie, and I was surprised that it did poorly in the theaters. Then I found out its release date. 9/12/2001.

To paraphrase something someone said on Fark about Newt Gingrich, Prometheus is a dumb person's idea of what a smart scifi movie looks like.

For someone that claims you are "usually not one to criticize someone else's taste in comedy" you sure seem to like to do it a lot when it comes to Seth McFarlane. And by recycling the same pathetic attempt at an insult no less.

For the record, it's ok to admit you simply don't have the mental capacity to understand the vast majority of Seth McFarlanes jokes. You don't have to come across as a sad little man with some sort of misguided hatred towards him, which obviously is born out of a deep seeded jealousy.

Don't believe that to be true. According to IMDB and other sources it was released on 9/28. Also, 9/12 was a Wednesday which does not generally have a lot of movies released.

The more storms really worries me. More are expected today. I couldn't get any kind of estimate from DP&L short of it will be less than the 3+ weeks from when Hurricane Ike hit Ohio to not any time before July 4. I hate DP&L. Seriously, hate them. But your AEP sounds like no picnic. I just looked them up, and they still have almost half-a-million without power.

Hate, hate, HATE DP&L! (I assume you feel even more so toward AEP, and I hope you at least have water!)

Yes, it sure takes a lot of education and mental acuity to understand fart, poop, rape, and retard jokes, not to mention 80s pop culture references. And from the times I've tried to watch it, they're the SAME fart, poop, rape and retard jokes. Family Guy is some of the laziest, most poorly written shiat out there. But as long as Seth keeps shiatting 'em out the manchildren will keep lapping it up and praising it as "edgy", when it's some of the most tired and predictable shiat out there.

Yeah. I'm not surprised.

Family Guy is funny (sometimes) but McFarlane has, like, ONE premise he pounds into the ground.

Also: Futurama is just Red Dwarf turned into an animated show. (Slovenly, dim loser is cryo-frozen, wakes in the far future where his companions are an artificial man (hologram/robot) named (Rimmer/Bender), a wacky, out-of-touch anthropomorphized animal-man (Cat/Zoidberg) and a sassy woman warrior/everywoman (Kochanski/Leela). A series of strange events aboard their spaceship propels the group through time, into other dimensions, and across the universe, while the slovenly, dim loser discovers how different the future is from the time he left behind while comically coping with the fact that everyone he knew is dead.)
 
2012-07-01 03:27:05 PM  
So is the movie as much a liberal turdfest as the last season of Family Guy?
Either way I refuse to see it.
 
2012-07-01 03:29:28 PM  
I didn't bother to read any comments, so this may have been said.

The movie wasn't bad, but I thought the subtle moments of comedy were a lot funnier than what the theater was laughing at. I think its because about 5 minutes in I realized that this movie is a live action family guy episode. Seth writes it the exact same way, cut outs and all (cut outs = fantasies). So you could tell what was coming next, which made it unfunny where the jokes were inserted. Im pretty sure most, if not all, of the voice actors had roles in the movie.

Also, I hate Marky Mark.

No attic, just a crawl space. There is also the issue of freezing. I know that's not an issue now, but it was when our power was knocked out for nearly two weeks during and ice storm. I like this thinking, though. I will admit that I was hoping some farkers might have some good ideas. This is getting to be monotonously frequent.

Yeah. I'm not surprised.



In Family Guy Brian isn't the one who causes problems with Peter and Lois's relationship, Peter is, Brian is most often part of the solution.

Rodger does cause problems but usually not with Stan and Francine unless hes screwing up a plan Stan started.

Yes Ted is very derivative of past McFarlane work. If you don't like his TV shows you probably won't like the movie. He is pretty much Peters sense of humor with Brians intellect and Rodgers party habits stuffed in a teddy bear. Me? I'm not an uptight asshole so I found it pretty funny, then again I'm pretty much Seth's target audience. Same age so his 80's culture references strike the same note for me that they do for him. Fun movie, not oscar material or anything but amusing.

Before Irene hit Virginia I picked up a 5500W (8500W peak) Briggs and Stratton generator for $850. We have a 2.5 horsepower well pump and the generator handles it just fine. I'm currently running a fridge, the well pump, a floor freezer, the TV, my laptop, and a portable air conditioner. It uses about 5 gallons of gas every 11 hours.

If I were you I'd shop around for a generator after the outage calms down. You can probably find a pretty good deal on one. Even if you don't have someone wire a gate switch into your breaker panel, a good electrician can wire up a plug for your well pump so you can just run an extension cord to it the next time the power goes out. The trick with well pumps is that they require a lot of power to start, so you need to find a generator with a high peak wattage. Even if the running wattage is low, the high peak will let the pump start. Our old generator, which was 5500W but only 6500W peak, couldn't start the well pump if anything else was running. The new one handles it.

Honestly, if I didn't have the generator I'd probably be standing outside Dominion's offices in Richmond with a megaphone yelling at them all day.
