I tried to see “The Dark Knight Rises” in time for this week’s column, but that turned out to be a fool’s errand. But never fear — we’ll be looking at the summer’s most anticipated release next time, which I suppose is just as well considering that many viewers will wait until the crowds thin out a bit to see it anyway.

So this week, in lieu of “Ice Age: Continental Drift” (because really, does anyone over the age of 7 even care at this point?), we’ll be playing catch-up with Seth MacFarlane’s feature debut, “Ted,” which has shocked everyone by racking up about $200 million in domestic box office receipts over the course of the past few weeks. It’s the surprise smash of the summer, and although it’s far from a comedic masterpiece, the film is deserving of the attention.
