At one point in the movie, Ted mentions 9/11. Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane both narrowly missed being on the planes that hit the World Trade Center. Wahlberg was booked on American Airlines Flight 11 but decided to drive up to New York and fly to California later. McFarlane was scheduled on the same flight but arrived to gate ten minutes late and was unable to board. He was sitting in the airport when he saw that his plane had hit the North Tower of the World trade center. See more »

Hey Johnny, I just had a great idea. Let's go get drunk and puke on cars on the overpass.
Oh, come on! I do not sound that much like Peter Griffin!

At the start of the movie, the Universal 'planet earth' signature sequence appears, and the narration begins. As the narration continues, the camera zooms in to the logo, "Google Earth Style" eventually centering on the action in the young John Bennet's home town. See more »
I couldn't get myself to like Ted. I just didn't find the affable fuzzball endearing. The thick East Coast accent with dirty language and antics could only do so much until it grew thin for me. Too bad the movie had to end in hopeless predictability, because I thought the movie would have engendered more meaning with his passing. The couple could have started their new lives without having to be obstructed by this man's childhood protégé.
Buddy films can be fun, but all this relationship offers is crass fun, partying and raunchy escapades. The cameo of Sam J. Jones (Flash Gordon) was novel and helped carry this threadbare plot along, but you know a movie is in trouble when they have to rely on trashing other actors.
