Ted is a little boys dream to have a friend, which animates a bear, which no one seems to be shocked about all that much. After seeing Chucky, I would have at least proceeded with caution.
You can tell it's highly influenced by Seth Mcfarlen, from the jokes to the wacky story. It's definitely, not something to be taken seriously, it's a good laugh. It consists of a lot of what I would call stoner jokes. It is definitely something new, not necessarily original, but new.
It's a great film to relax to, from seeing Toy Story who hasn't wished a toy would come to life (this doesn't include Chucky, good guy dolls, they should be left well alone).
