This is not a film I would normally watch. I was railroaded into it by my wife on a flight over the weekend. She had started watching it and subsequently persuaded me to interrupt my viewing of another film to watch this. My expectations were low. I'll conclude at the beginning - its brilliant. Looking at the other reviews this is a bit of a Marmite movie. Plenty of one starers to accompany the fortunate majority of five starers. You need to be able to see beyond the superficiality of a talking, swearing bear to appreciate this film. Not everyone will be able to do this. Bad luck guys - you are missing out. I found the comedy fresh and witty. OK, so its rather rude, but thats kinda where its roots are. I've never seen a teddy bear smoking a bong surrounded by hookers. Thats fresh for sure! The wit comes from the way Ted is portrayed - as a down and out human like character trying to cling on to his role as a teddy bear - a little boy's friend who has now grown up. Wahlberg, on the other hand, is a grown man trying to relinquish his role as a teddy bear's custodian. He does it brilliantly too. There is plenty of comedy friction to be had from this unusual situation. I loved the way the story progressed. Deep within it all there are some touching messages to be found. Depending on which side of the Marmite fence you sit this might be easy or hard. But most definitely worth a try

A surprisingly sweet very funny comedy which is not entirely as it seems. Ted is a bear bought to life by a young boy who makes a wish at Christmas for a best friend. Rather than this being a Disney like feel good film of a cuddly toy befriending a human, Ted is a potty mouthed drug abusing z-list celebrity.

After a rise to fame and a fall from grace Ted is trying to lead a "normal" life with his best bud John and his girlfriend Lorrie. However the home is too small for the three of them and it is time for Ted to move on. Throw in a crazed fan trying to kidnap Ted and you have a near perfect recipe ripe for comedy.

Ted is witty, relevant and hugely funny. The gross out humour the trailers allude too is not the focus of the film. In fact that is just a funny facet of Ted's personality. The jokes come naturally through the many situations the characters find themselves in. Ted himself is an absolute triumph. He is such a well rounded character with a sweetness that helps you connect with him.

Both Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis are game and throw themselves into the mix. The cgi effects of Ted are also brilliantly realised. His every movement physically and facially perfectly evokes his feelings and there lies the essence of the comedy.

The story is fairly straight forward but this is no bad thing. It gives room for the jokes and the emotional moments to breath. The hit rate is high and he jokes come thick and fast. The only downside is the slightly tacked on feeling of the kidnap plot. It doesn't add much apart from leading into the rather obvious ending but again it isn't enough to detract from the rest of the film.

A very successful comedy that can be enjoyed by all.

It's not a family guy episode. It just isn't - don't be put off by the people who claim it is.

What it is however, is 106 minutes of laughs with a smattering of suspense (no, really), and it's rounded off nicely with a heartwarming ending. All of that sounds a biit "meh", but when it's funny it's really funny - Ted going for a job interview at the supermarket had me almost hyperventilating with laughter. And there are some real near-to-the-knuckle comic moments.

Patrick Stewart expertly narrates the opening scenes with excellent comic precision.

If you're a big FG fan, you'll recognise that some of the crew are from FG:
Walter Murphy does the music as he does on Family Guy.
Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild had a hand in the screenplay.

Also from FG:
Lois (Alex Borstein) young John's mum
Joe Swanson (Partrick Warburton) John's work friend, easily recognisible by his voice
And in Ted, Lori is played by Mila Kunis who is Meg in Family Guy.

Other cameos from memory include Flash Gordon (Sam J. Jones), Ryan Reynolds, and Norah Jones and Tom Skerritt.
And a special mention must go to Giovanni Ribisi who is an excellent actor, he plays "weirdos" so well.

For me, this was the second best film of 2012 (Avengers if you're wondering), and is well worthy of a place in your DVD collection.

I've knocked a star off because it sagged for 10 minutes or so, don't let that put you off though.

The plot is very straightforward: a boy, John Bennett, wishes for ‘a best friend’ and a falling meteorite grants him his wish; a talking teddy bear (voiced by Seth MacFarlane, who also directs and co-screenwrites) who becomes a rather washed-up celebrity. However, as John grows up into the character played by Mark Wahlberg, they remain best friends but complications arise when Ted accompanies 35 year old John when he moves in with his girl-friend Lori Collins (Mila Kunis).
What happens next depends on your sense of humour; if you like Rabelaisian, bawdy comedy with lots of offensive language, you’ll love this film – if not and you’re easily offended (but if you decide to watch it anyway) it’d be best if you were to accompany your viewing with smelling salts. John is terrified by thunder and the scene in which he and Lori are in bed when there’s a growl of thunder, which causes Ted to jump into bed with them and he and John sing the ‘Thunder Song’ is hilarious, the more so because they sing it straight-faced.
Ted’s animation is very cleverly done and there’s a nice sub-plot in which very weird Donny (Giovani Ribisi) and his repellent son, Robert (Aiden Mincks) who, baulked of their chance to buy Ted, kidnap him. How John deals with the out-of-control Robert is on a par with Indiana Jones, coping with the scimitar-wielding assassin.
There’s a very humorous narration by Patrick Stewart and although this film won’t be to everybody’s taste, it was to mine!
