Ted the bear gets married and now wants to have children. However, the state legally says that Ted is property and not a person. Now he must find the means to prove that he is a person and therefore has the right to be a father so should he choose.
The movie seems kind of stupid, but it is that kind of stupid created by Seth MacFarlane which has made him tremendously popular and successful overall. I personally found Ted (2012) to be fun, but overall overrated. Hearing the talk about how this film isn’t as good as the original doesn’t make me want to run out to see it.. On the plus side, many claim it is better than MacFarlane’s last film A Million Days to Die in the West (2014). (I mean, it almost automatically has to be, right?)

After a marine dog suffers a traumatic experience in the field of battle, he finds a new home with his handler’s family. The younger brother of his former handler and Max form a special connection that will last a lifetime.
This movie may be familiar. A boy and his dog have a deep friendship. Still, the movie seems to be well done. (Also has that potentially to be absolutely heartbreaking.) If you need a family film and aren’t into or already have seen Inside Out, this may be your best bet.

A young teenager comes to the rescue of President of the United States when he is stranded in the forest after Air Force One was shot down.
(My words have failed me for this one.) I get that YA fiction is now trending in Hollywood, but some fiction needs to stay there. This may be one of those cases.
