Ted

King of American animated comedy Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy) makes his cinematic debut with this R-rated comedy about one man and his foul-mouthed teddy bear. Stars Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis.

John (Wahlberg) has an unusual best pal - his cherished teddy bear (voiced by MacFarlane) who came to life as the result of a childhood wish, has refused to leave his side ever since, and shares John's enthusiasm for smoking weed and watching Flash Gordon. But when John fears losing his long-time girlfriend Lori (Kunis), he attempts to rid himself of his slacker lifestyle and jump into adulthood, a decision that doesn’t bode well with Ted.

Meanwhile, a creepy father (Giovanni Ribisi, Avatar) and his demanding son express an unhealthy interest in the talking teddy bear…

A predictably irreverent satire that's sweeter and, sadly, less funny than you might expect.

The sin of "Ted" is not that it is offensive but that it is boring, lazy and wildly unoriginal.

The plot of is fairly standard but greatly embellished by MacFarlane's ability to establish comic situations and keep them building.

To fully appreciate "Ted," it's best to simply forgive its bad behavior upfront and save any apologies for liking it until later. Sorry.

Not too many films serve up laughs that just keep on rolling with regularity from beginning to end, but Seth MacFarlane's directorial debut does so and without any feeling of strain.

An incongruously cute interspecies buddy comedy that's powered alternately by the pixie dust of boyhood imagination and the ruder, cruder urges of adolescence.

SO the Trailer is R18 but the film is R13! In saying that, this is the funniest film I have seen all year, what made it great as the actors totally believed in Ted and just acting like it was another human with them. By doing so you bought into the world straight away and fell in love with Ted. A fantastic Comedy!

This film is mis-rated. Should be a R16. My wife and 18 year old daughter wanted to walk out and give it a 2 but crass. My 13 year old gave it 4 stars. Lots of funny lines and jokes which is a real plus. If you like Family Guy and would like something a little cruder and derogatory to woman then this would suit you. 18 year olds who get excited seeing...

Amazing one-liners, excellent cameos and a whole lot of "they're not going to go there are they?......" Has you laughing out loud throughout. Would highly recommend to fans of Family Guy, but don't bother, if you are easily grossed out or offended.

Great title an thats where the laughing began, not stopping till Patrick Stewart stopped. Seth did a fantastic childish job on this movie, much like 'Something Something Something Darkside' 'It's a Trap' 'Family Guy' 'American Dad', etc, of cause because they're all done by same guy! With a similar story to 'You, Me and Dupree', but chuck in a talking bear!...

'Ted' begins with a pastiche of those Christmas magic Hollywood movie cliches as Patrick Stewart's rich toned narrator states: "Nothing is stronger than a young boy's wish... except an Apache helicopter." If that kind of humour don't rock your canoe, then you might not find the sight of Mila Kunis picking up a prostitute's turd from her carpet funny...
