Big Hollywood

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

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.

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.

"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.

The laughs are mountainously massive.

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.

Killer Movie Reviews

there is a sophisticated social satire at work that is so finely wrought that though it might appear as the very thing it is skewering, there is something much more subtle and much more potent going on.

Movie Talk

Ted gives a rude, irreverent and, in places, very funny new spin to the buddy comedy genre.

At times I laughed so hard I thought I would bust a capillary somewhere.

Philip French
Observer [UK]

In effect we can read Ted as not merely a comedy of growing up, or refusing to move on from adolescence, but as a psychological fable about the continuing struggle to become a mature person.

Irish Times

There's just enough mileage in the gag to keep the movie spluttering through an energetic series of pop-cultural references and broadly staged orgies of profanity.

Laughter doesn't lie. I loved Ted and found it irresistibly funny and hugely enjoyable.

There's something quite wonderful about having a bear that is this free to speak its mind.

Ted has nothing much to offer in terms of subtlety and sensitivity, but there are plenty of laughs.

Henry Fitzherbert
Daily Express

If you're in the mood for something raucous, rude and very silly, Ted should keep you entertained. Just be warned: Toy Story it 'aint.

Liverpool Echo

A deliciously foul-mouthed comedy that employs the magic of digital trickery to bring to life one rotund stuffed bear as a buddy for a lonely boy.
