It's just not funny. Not only is it not funny, it's unfunny.
September 28, 2017
There are glimpses of hilarity in there some of the jokes connect hard and there are some seriously awesome cameos, but it's just not enough to carry the entire film which plays more like a bunch of poorly connected, very funny skits than a cohesive film

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.
June 28, 2013
It is a film that seems to have an endless middle.
June 23, 2013
Soulless, angry-white-guy comedy at its worst. This is a smug, nasty little number.
June 2, 2013
I was expecting something more than repetitive jokes, incessant pop culture references and rampant misogyny.
March 4, 2013
Hit and miss humour with problematic undertones buoyed by an intriguing premise and appealing performances from the film's human cast.
October 30, 2012
MacFarlane is reduced to making increasingly laboured references to the 1980s.

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.
September 14, 2012
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.
August 23, 2012
A lot of comic effort is smothered in conventional wrapping.
August 6, 2012
Hit and miss humour with problematic undertones buoyed by an intriguing premise and appealing performances from the film's human cast.
August 2, 2012
Less a movie, more a ragbag of 80's pop cultural references hung on a storyline.
August 1, 2012
This is ersatz subversion for an audience secretly terrified of the real thing.
July 31, 2012
Only a protracted fight between the titular fuzzball and a well-cast Mark Wahlberg begins to tap into the absurd potential of the concept.
July 24, 2012
Ted is dispiriting because it has no faith in us and no ambition for itself.
July 24, 2012
A pet project padded out to feature-length, bromance-meets-romance predictability. The story beats are so obvious they seem tapped out on a telegraph. If you want to see a Boston bruin who was truly interesting, watch a documentary about Bobby Orr.
July 20, 2012
An ugly-looking film, with the expected ugly jokes and extended pop-culture riffs, but, like the similarly scattershot 'Family Guy,' its holds your interest even as it annoys.
