MOVIE BUZZ: I’m interested to see how Seth MacFarlane’s humor translates to the big screen for myriad reasons; mainly, he probably isn’t relying on à la minute pop culture references that have sustained his TV audience for over a decade. Less of a risk for MacFarlane or Mark Wahlberg, this is a huge gamble for Universal, whose own President and COO raised eyebrows late 2011 for admitting the studio makes some pretty cruddy movies.
