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

This is Wade Boggs' autographed bat. I just barely outbid Phil Donahue for that at an auction.

This is art. Get it?

These were John Lennon's glasses. They're worth like a million dollars.

At the start of the movie, the Universal 'planet earth' signature sequence appears, and the narration begins. As the narration continues, the camera zooms in to the logo, "Google Earth Style" eventually centering on the action in the young John Bennet's home town. See more »
In Boston, the eight-year old lonely boy John Bennett has no friends. On the Christmas day, he wishes that his Ted bear comes to life and a miracle happens and Ted becomes his only friend. Twenty-seven years later, John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) is a pothead that works at a car rental and spends his idle time smoking pot and watching movies with Ted. He also has a girlfriend for four years, Lori Collins (Mila Kunis), who has a great job. Lori's boss Rex (Joel McHale) tries unsuccessfully to get into her pants. One day, John meets the weird Donny (Giovanni Ribisi) that worships Ted and wants to buy him for his son Robert (Aedin Mincks) but John refuses the offer. When Lori puts John against the wall to stay with her, John has to make a tough decision.
"Ted" is an unfunny and moronic comedy overrated in IMDb. The stupid jokes may be suitable for young teenagers and John Bannett and Ted are not charismatic characters. The plot is full of clichés and questionable humor and despite the good cast and cameos, watching "Ted" is a waste of time. My vote is three.
Title (Brazil): "O Ursinho Ted" ("The Ted Little Bear")
