Thomas: John, it's almost 10:00.
John: I know, sir. I'm sorry, it wasn't my fault.
Thomas: What do you mean?
John: Why? I, I guess I wasn't really prepared for a follow-up question.

Absolutely pure, uncompromising, unapologetic crap.
23 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Ted" is trash. I could only stand to watch the first 15 minutes and even that felt like grey matter was being sucked out of my head. There are some genuinely funny raunchy comedies from time to time these days--but the writing in this movie went beyond silly and inane and then tried to make up for it by trying to conceal itself behind a mountain of prurient crude.

Ted stands as conspicuous embarrassment to its screenplay creators and the universe needs to be balanced by at least 10 quality counter comedies or, at least, a public apology to movie-goers in all places, past, present, and future. Yes, this show was THAT bad. Test it: talk to someone that has seen it, but make sure they are not surrounded by others lest the pubescent peer pressure forces an insincere response. I love movies, all types. This movie threatens not only the genre but probably the credibility of those aspiring to its originality. Heaven help us if this is the future of edgy comedy.
