John makes a Christmas miracle happen by bringing his one and only friend to life, his teddy bear. The two grow up together and John must then choose to stay with his girlfriend or keep his friendship with his crude and extremely inappropriate teddy bear, Ted. Written by
(at around 1h 25 mins) A car is seen driving left to right at an intersection. There is a sign that says "Left Turn Only" which would suggest it is a one-way street flowing to the left not the right. See more »
Can I give you a ride home?
No thanks, I'll walk. I might get raped but if I do I'll know it's my fault because of what I'm wearing.

The opening credits were supposed to start with "Universal Pictures and Media Rights Capital Presents" as shown in the trailers/commercials and the back of the DVD/Blu-Ray covers. But, for unknown reasons, it starts with "Media Rights Capital Presents" and "Universal Pictures Presents" in the actual movie. See more »
There are no spoilers here because there is nothing contained within the confines of this motion picture really worth typing out. I find it increasingly disappointing as a human being that people fall for such worthless, low life, gimmicky humour. "Oh wow, look, a teddy is smoking weed, being radically racist/other-things-similar-to-racism and ignorant! Haha oh what a guy, that IS funny!" There is nothing remotely adult (it is basically a movie for young teens who are too blind to see that swearing and insensitivity are not the cake for humour, only the icing) and creative about this movie. (Sure, there is a valid love story about needing to grow up but that's a thin cover that leaks smell on a pot of s**t). Humour in general may be 'immature' but there is a step between intelligent, immature humour and frankly lame, childlike immature humour where if you insert enough insensitive and inappropriate material into a film the creators assume people are dumb enough to clap their hands together and giggle like a baby. Which we obviously are because this movie got a decent rating. I think I'll stick to comidians who have real wit and something worthwhile to get laughs about. Not impressed. Goodbye standards, welcome worthless rubbish, here, take my money!
