The greatest compliment I can pay Seth MacFarlane's Ted is that although this is essentially one of those slacker, stoner comedies, and such comedies aren't really my thing... this did make me laugh quite a bit.

It is a film that seems to have an endless middle.

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.
August 2, 2012
Ted has nothing much to offer in terms of subtlety and sensitivity, but there are plenty of laughs.
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.
August 1, 2012
This is ersatz subversion for an audience secretly terrified of the real thing.

Sure, MacFarlane, you can make us laugh, but it's time to grow up. Seriously.

The bear done good.
July 30, 2012
Crass, supremely silly and very, very funny, Ted is the comedy of the summer.
June 30, 2012
Everything goes on too long -- Ted's carousing, Lori's watchful waiting, John's wistful indecision.
June 29, 2012
It's a goofy premise pursued with crass -- as well as sentimental -- relish.
June 29, 2012
You'll feel the warmth and camaraderie of a Bostonian and his little sentient bear.
June 29, 2012
I tried to resist but couldn't.
June 29, 2012
The idea of a toy that comes to life - and then won't go away - isn't a bad one. Too bad that "Ted" manages to overstay its welcome without ever really coming to life itself.
June 29, 2012
As unabashedly idiotic movie comedies go, Ted goes fairly well.
June 29, 2012
"Ted" is so lazy you want to kick the stuffing out of it.
June 29, 2012
Underneath the matted fur of the movie's foul-mouthed bear beats a very real heart.
June 29, 2012
The plot is simply a shaky frame on which to hang drug and sex jokes and numerous pop-culture references.
June 29, 2012
I expected "Ted" to be a one-joke movie, but it's got ideas spilling out of its seams.
