John Hanlon
Big Hollywood

A surprisingly funny and crude comedy about a man's relationship with a talking teddy bear.

Film Comment Magazine

It is a film that seems to have an endless middle.

Deadspin

Soulless, angry-white-guy comedy at its worst. This is a smug, nasty little number.

Al Alexander
The Patriot Ledger

I was expecting something more than repetitive jokes, incessant pop culture references and rampant misogyny.

June 2, 2013

Hit and miss humour with problematic undertones buoyed by an intriguing premise and appealing performances from the film's human cast.

Concrete Playground

A refreshingly original idea backed by excellent performances and terrifically funny writing.

Michael Sauter
Film Journal International

The creator of TV's "Family Guy" directs his first live-action movie-in which he gets to say and do all the profane, politically incorrect and just plain gross things he can't say or do on television. And a lot of it is pretty funny.

MacFarlane is reduced to making increasingly laboured references to the 1980s.

The Sabotage Times

Those who detest Family Guy will not be converted but fans will surely lap up a film that - whilst sometimes flawed - is rude, crude and often very funny.

Ted presents plenty of fresh laughs and, from time to time, heart/stuffing-warming character moments.

The Aristocrat

A film with Ted's ingredients should have you stone-drunk on laughter but this film is the comedic equivalent of pissed-in light beer: its 2.5% funny.

We Got This Covered

I enjoyed and laughed at Ted, but I can't say I liked it; MacFarlane lacks focus, the jokes are occasionally offensive, and though the movie has heart, it bungles whatever message it's trying to get across.

Ultra Culture

Feel free to tell me to lighten up and get a sense of humour, but it's also worth asking whether it's humour that really drives Ted's nasty streak.

"Ted" is what happens when you give the creator of "Family Guy" the freedom of an R-rating and a big budget - and the final product is nothing short of raunchy, comedy gold.

September 5, 2012

The laughs are mountainously massive.

Film International

A lot of comic effort is smothered in conventional wrapping.

If you've ever put a Twisted Sister cassette into a Teddy Ruxpin or wished you could have, this movie is for you.

Linda Cook
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

Raunchy, intentionally offensive and full of warm fuzzies (including its title character), 'Ted' is one of the funniest movies for grownups that's come along in years.

Adam Lowes
HeyUGuys

With Ted, MacFarlane has produced a genuinely laugh-a-minute yarn which warms the heart and tickles the funny bone into hysterical submission.

Martin Roberts
Fan The Fire

If you're fundamentally put off by MacFarlane's brand of comedy, Ted's cruder elements may well prove too irksome, but this film does have a sweetness at its heart that is pleasantly unexpected, even if it does follow an extremely predictable plot.
