As the result of a childhood wish, John Bennett's teddy bear, Ted, came to life and has been by John's side ever since - a friendship that's tested when Lori, John's girlfriend of four years, wants more from their relationship.
Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
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
"007" producer Barbara Broccoli traditionally never allows any James Bond theme to be used in other films but Seth MacFarlane wrote her a letter asking for permission to use 'All Time High' from Octopussy (1983) as it was his mother's favorite song. Broccoli made a rare exception to her rule, hence John gets to slaughter the tune in a performance in front of a dismayed crowd. See more »
In the bathroom fight scene when John falls into the bath, his hands go from clasped together on his chest to out sideways either side of him in sequential shots. See more »

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 »
If fart jokes and seeing a teddy bear getting stoned keep you entertained for an hour and a half, you'll love this film. I went with my son who loves Family Guy and he didn't find it funny either - never hear a cinema so quiet for a comedy! The basic premise is that a bear acts like a dysfunctional adult, compensating for his shortcomings by drinking, smoking dope, being promiscuous and swearing a lot. It didn't really provide a strong enough idea for a whole movie. There are also a lot of 'in jokes' about American TV people, films and Flash Gordon, mostly lost on us. I think the writers probably locked themselves in a room, got off their heads, found each other really entertaining and wrote it up as a script.
