Anyone who's watched Family Guy knows that its creator Seth MacFarlane has a lot of hang-ups. As outrageous as many of them are in their animated TV show forum, they get a real rundown in Ted, MacFarlane's multi-hyphenate debut in feature films. As the director, producer, cowriter, and voice artist behind the title character, MacFarlane riffs on pop culture, drug culture, religion, sex, bodily functions, and all things '80s with the kind of abandon that borders on offensive to pretty much anyone--if only it all weren't so spot-on funny.

Ted is an utterly believable CGI teddy bear who comes to life in the arms of a friendless 8-year-old boy named John, who quickly grows up to be Mark Wahlberg. John has made a wish that the pudgy plush be a friend for forever, a deal that they both hold on to with genuine poignancy as the years roll by. Ted grows right along with John in voice, manner, attitude, and bad habits until they're both unmotivated layabouts who would rather do nothing more than swill beer, smoke dope, and watch the absurdly iconic '80s movie Flash Gordon over and over again to the exclusion of most everything else in life.

John has managed to pick up a girlfriend named Lori (Mila Kunis), who somehow tolerates the pair of them--at least for a little while. Eventually she's annoyed enough with John for not putting away his childish things, thoughts, and behaviours that she demands Ted move out and let them move on as adults. Among all the conceits that Ted embraces is the fact that this fully anthropomorphized stuffed bear started life as a global celebrity sensation before everyone forgot about him. Now he's just a blue-collar Boston nobody who sucks on a bong, chases women, and makes dirty jokes at every opportunity while nobody pays attention. This could have been a generic lowbrow buddy movie in the Judd Apatow mold, which might have been a little funny with a human slob in the Ted role. But MacFarlane brings to the remarkably expressive CGI creation an astonishing and often shocking dynamic with his voice characterization and the consistently clever situations, which whiz by in a structure that's pretty similar to an episode of Family Guy. There are frequent non sequitur digressions and offhanded one-liners that MacFarlane could never get away with on TV. But in the raunchy, anything-goes world of Ted it's all fair game.

In addition to farts, drugs, bodily functions, and all manner of sexual vulgarity, it's the slams or homages to the 1980s that are the butt of many of the best zingers or recurring jokes. There are several cameo appearances that may make for delighted double takes. And Sam Jones, the star of the ill-fated Flash Gordon, plays a version of himself that makes a running gag all the more ingenious and demonstrates how far MacFarlane will go to bring comedy down to his level of hilarity. Mark Wahlberg should be commended for being game enough to participate and absolutely shows the comedy chops to make his scenes with Ted come alive. Technically the movie is a wonder as the two-foot Ted blends into the real world with complete believability even as he spouts some of the most outrageous dialogue this side of The Hangover. Ted may be an acquired taste for those who have a dislike for MacFarlane's comic sensibility--and there are a lot of people who do. But as a laughable lowbrow adventure that delivers virtually nonstop unexpected laughs with a little heart to back it up, Ted is a surprising comic novelty that may even win over some of the most vituperative MacFarlane haters. --Ted Fry

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior comedy. 10 April 2014
Had to write my review as i see this film because i read many saying its just a swearing bear and crude humour but to me Ted is so much more.
Seth Mcfarlane's writing is all about nostalgia as it is with Family Guy , if you grew up in the 80's it helps enormously and i feel Seth is the kind of guy you want to sit in the pub with and talk rubbish about days gone past.
Younger viewers may just like the sexual humour and fun at seeing a cute but cheeky teddy bear being highly sexual and racist and un-pc but for older viewers you can enjoy the references to Airplane, Indiana Jones and of course Flash Gordon...Sam Jones in his cameo is this is wonderful and it works so well.
Mark wahlberg and Mila Kunis are splendid working with the brilliant CGI creation which is totally believable and you forget he isn't actually in the same frame as them .
I even found the film touching and heartfelt.
I even find Ted as a film is underrated as it could have been so bad and a real turkey under someone else's direction..looking forward to the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily the best comedy of the year 12 Sep 2012
By Jon
Ted is hilarious, rude and crude (possibly the word you will see in every review of this movie). The film is cast with comedy gold, with a smattering of Family Guy voice actors thrown in for good measure, and the one-liners smack you in the face right from the beginning. The hilarious narration (provided by Patrick Stewart) supplies a healthy handful of these. The mention of the Apache helicopter was still making me laugh when the film had ended.
What can sometimes be the best thing about a comedy is when it is set in a world that is actually believable - obviously with a living and breathing teddy bear involved this comment might seem slightly strange. However, everything else is plausible, and the animated bear is really well integrated into this world as a second rate "celebrity". From here, the laughs continue to flow.
Some people have described this as an hour-and-a-half long episode of Family Guy, and although the humour is broadly the same, believe it or not, there is much more substance to this movie, with sex, romance, danger, drugs and language used in ways that a twenty-minute episode of Family Guy could only dream of.
As John (Mark Wahlberg) and Lori (Mila Kunis) try to create some kind of life together, Ted's shenanigans (possibly an understatement as these shenanigans often involve parties, drugs and prostitutes) continue to come between them. To John, he is just having fun with his longtime friend. To Lori, John is being influenced more and more by these "shenanigans".
I saw one review describe Ted as "wildy unoriginal", however I'm not sure if you can get more original with a storyline that involves a walking, talking, drug-addled teddy bear. So often, comedies are hit and miss, or run out of steam towards the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't meet expectation 23 Feb 2013

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh. 27 Aug 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It's funny enough in several places and I'm sure fans of Family Guy will love it. Mark Wahlberg does a great job at projecting and reacting to a character that's not actually there (a very hard thing to do and easily overlooked). And the CGI is top-notch and makes Ted into a full, expressive creature.

However, the problems with it are:
a) there's really no story there beyond the jokes and what little there is is a rip-off of Garfield and any number of rom-coms
b) like so much of MacFarlane's work, there is a lot of underlying misogyny
c) some of the cameos works brilliantly but others fall absolutely flat
d) while some people may defend some of the jokes as satirising political correctness (like Family Guy supposedly does), there were several jokes that just came off as racist or childishly offensive.

If you're currently reading this with ire then I'm sure you're the sort of emotional adolescent this film is aimed at and will have a laugh with it. On the other hand, if you're having second thoughts then go with your gut.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why did we buy this 29 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately we do not have the sence of humor for this film, and found it a real dissapointment. We were really looking forward to it, but found it really crude and vulgar, and turned it off after half an hour.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just not funny 2 Mar 2014
I wasn't put off by the comments about language or crudity, especially in the name of a good laugh. BUT this just wasn't funny. There was the germ of a great idea, excellent cgi of the bear, but none of this makes up for an abysmal script that fails to live up to any of the hype. I chuckled a couple of times, but that's about it. Don't waste your evening.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ted DVD. 8 Jan 2013

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very funny film and good value. Worth noting this teddy bear is for adult humour and not young children as people may perceive due to title.
