While blockbuster hits such as "The Amazing Spiderman" and "The Avenger" having performed as well as they were slated to, many were surprised to see another movie right up there in the cinematic pack; "Ted," a raunchy yet shamefully funny rated R comedy.    

Surpassing its expectations and then some, the hit flick has grossed a whopping $154 million dollars worldwide at the box office. 

While "Family Guy" is clearly still his baby, Writer/Director Seth Macfarlane had been turning his wheels on the raunchy teddy bear comedy for quite some time.

While interviewed by Collider, Seth MacFarlane explained exactly how he came up with the comedic masterpiece:

"This was an idea that had actually been floating around in my head for a while.  I had originally conceived it as an animated idea and, for a number of reasons, shelved it.  And then, when it came time to do my first movie, it seemed like a story that would make a much better film than a series," explained MacFarlane.

When the creative mastermind was asked why it took him so long to make the hit flick, he had this to say:

"Family Guy had that little cancellation thing happen to it, and I wanted to make sure that it was fully on its feet, after coming back, before I stepped away to do a film because it did mean stepping away from the show completely for at least a year, and that was something I hadn't done yet."

The movie stars Mark Wahlberg and the beautiful Mila Kunis while Macfarlane does the voiceovers for our favorite Teddy Bear.

Be forewarned:  The movie is not for the conservative at heart.  But if you do enjoy a mean comedy and don't mind a little raunchiness along the way, it comes highly recommended.  After all, numbers do not lie.
