August 23, 2012
A lot of comic effort is smothered in conventional wrapping.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

If you've ever put a Twisted Sister cassette into a Teddy Ruxpin or wished you could have, this movie is for you.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.0/4.0
August 15, 2012
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
August 13, 2012
With Ted, MacFarlane has produced a genuinely laugh-a-minute yarn which warms the heart and tickles the funny bone into hysterical submission.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
August 12, 2012
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.

August 9, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 9, 2012
Ted gives a rude, irreverent and, in places, very funny new spin to the buddy comedy genre.
August 7, 2012
At times I laughed so hard I thought I would bust a capillary somewhere.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 6, 2012
Hit and miss humour with problematic undertones buoyed by an intriguing premise and appealing performances from the film's human cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
August 5, 2012
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.
August 3, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Laughter doesn't lie. I loved Ted and found it irresistibly funny and hugely enjoyable.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

There's something quite wonderful about having a bear that is this free to speak its mind.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 2, 2012
Ted has nothing much to offer in terms of subtlety and sensitivity, but there are plenty of laughs.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 2, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 2, 2012
The film will probably be funnier if you go with a beer, a friend or perhaps - who knows? - your own dissolute soft toy companion.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 2, 2012
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...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

[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...
