The movie is hilarious in fits and starts, but nothing is sustained and every joke, funny or not, is delivered with the dial up to 11.

Very funny until all of the sudden it's not anymore.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The laughs are mountainously massive.

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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
