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

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

"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.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

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

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

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

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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.

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.
Donald Clarke
Irish Times
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.

There's something quite wonderful about having a bear that is this free to speak its mind.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Ted has nothing much to offer in terms of subtlety and sensitivity, but there are plenty of laughs.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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.
