An episode of Family Guy might have more jokes than this entire movie. Sure I enjoy Seth McFarlane's brand of comedy but they are too few and too far.
John (Wahlberg) is a lonely kid and wishes for his Teddy Bear to be able to talk to him and his wish is granted. Skip 25 years and the Teddy Bear (Ted (voiced by Seth McFarlane)), now a pot smoking foul mouthed ex-celebrity is still living with him and is coming in the way of him moving forward in his life and relationship with his long term girlfriend Lori (Mila Kunis).
The comedy genre is very similar to that of Family Guy mixing together Peter, Stewie and Brian according to the situations. The premise is quite familiar and does not go adventurous. Wahlberg has a good comedy timing and Mila Kunis sleepwalks through the role that she is quite accustomed to. Have to commend the CGI team for perfectly blending in Ted to make him feel real.
It is nowhere near as funny as it should be.
