Laughter doesn't lie. I loved Ted and found it irresistibly funny and hugely enjoyable.

Ted has nothing much to offer in terms of subtlety and sensitivity, but there are plenty of laughs.

The film will probably be funnier if you go with a beer, a friend or perhaps - who knows? - your own dissolute soft toy companion.

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.
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.

I tried to resist but couldn't.

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.

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.
June 29, 2012
What began as a promising, if unhinged, experiment in suspending disbelief starts to feel like "You, Me and Dupree" for plushies.
June 28, 2012
In a universe of Hollywood comedies that seem determined to insult the audience and pander to the basest form of post-adolescent fantasy, "Ted" feels almost sophisticated.
June 28, 2012
The natural interactions between Ted and his beloved man-child owner, John, terrifically played as an adult by Mark Wahlberg, are more often than not ridiculously funny.
June 28, 2012
Ted's real trick is turning a one-joke premise into a reasonable facsimile of a movie, and one that isn't entirely bent on grossing us out.
