TED

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) Writer-director Seth MacFarlane’s debut feature is a crass, foul-mouthed, mostly hilarious, surprisingly sentimental bromance about a grown boy named John (Mark Wahlberg) and his bong-huffing teddy bear (voiced by MacFarlane). It’s really about that screw-up friend you want to outgrow but can’t. With Mila Kunis and a Boston vibe that feels close to the real thing. (R; runs through May 30)

THE BOURNE LEGACY ½

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) If you’re going to make a “Bourne” movie without Matt Damon, Jeremy Renner isn’t a bad second choice. But Tony Gilroy’s movie is both overplotted and underwritten, with none of the emotional grip of the earlier movies and a final 20 minutes that throw in the towel. Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton costar. (PG-13; runs through May 30)

(Comcast Free Movies) This intelligently provocative film spotlights root causes of neo-Nazism, with an electrifying performance by Edward Norton as a charismatic California skinhead who repudiates his white-supremacist past after a prison term and tries to keep a worshipful kid brother from following in his footsteps. (R; runs through March 7)
