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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

The film will probably be funnier if you go with a beer, a friend or perhaps - who knows? - your own dissolute soft toy companion.

Less a movie, more a ragbag of 80's pop cultural references hung on a storyline.
August 2, 2012
Underneath the fur-ious comedy of Ted is the standard skeleton of a traditional rom-com complete with a conservative ending. Ted does not really work as a fully rounded film but feels more like three episodes of a sitcom strung together.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Enjoyable slacker comedy with likeable characters, a steady stream of decent gags and strong performances from a superb comic cast...

[W]orks so well not just because the entire story so casually accepts the reality of a living teddy bear... but because Wahlberg is so wholly dedicated to... emotional authenticity...

This is ersatz subversion for an audience secretly terrified of the real thing.

Voiced by MacFarlane, you could argue that Ted is just Family Guy's hooched-up pooch Brian with more fur and less class. Maybe so, but he's still a riot.

Only a protracted fight between the titular fuzzball and a well-cast Mark Wahlberg begins to tap into the absurd potential of the concept.
