In all seriously, I cannot wait to see the movie “Ted”. I’ve heard nothing but good things from my friends that I respect for movie watching advice. But if I was sitting in a theater with Mayor Giuliani, (yes, I still call him mayor, deal with it), I wouldn’t have laughed either.
The New York Post is reporting this morning that he didn’t find a 9/11 joke funny, and the audience, out of respect, didn’t laugh either.
The audience was in stitches at most of the raunchy humor in the Mark Wahlberg R-rated comedy. But one joke in Seth MacFarlane’s potty-mouthed opus didn’t land. In one scene, Ted — the misanthropic CGI teddy bear in the film — asks singer Norah Jones about her nationality, then shockingly spits back, “Whatever. Thanks for 9/11.” “No one in the theater laughed,” the Hamptons spy said. “The joke fell completely flat.” They added the audience “had too much respect for the mayor” to make light of the disaster. But Rudy and Judi were later seen enjoying the rest of their night in the Hamptons.
