Movies 2013: My Expectations (Part 1 of 2)

I'm a gamer myself and was quite skeptical if it would succeed with such classics. The expectations for it are high enough, so hopefully it doesn't disappoint me. Read if it could meet my expectations.

Seth MacFarlane is the creator of Family Guy and several other cartoon series, recognized for his immature and vulgar jokes. Ted is not that different in this regard, but a lot better at it than his other works.

Looking at the box office results shows clearly that he made a lot of money out of it, which success many never expected to be as high as they got with strong competition like The Dark Knight Rises. The question is, how he could get even woman to be excited about his newest work.
