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

When Ted is bear-napped by Donny and Robert, and he escapes into the bathroom to call John for help, he calls from a land-line phone. Discovering him, Donny ends the call by disconnecting the telephone wire from the wall, yet we hear a dial tone. A land-line phone would go completely silent once its cord became disconnected.

Hey, play 'Chopsticks', you jazzy slut!
Hahaha! How are you?
How are you, you fuzzy asshole?
Well, you know I'm not a hot half-Muslim chick who sold over 37 million records, but I'm hanging in there.
Well, half-Indian, but... thanks.
Hey, whatever. Thanks for 9/11. Hey listen - I want you to meet a good pal of mine, all right? John Bennett, Norah Jones.

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 »
Not worth it, regardless of Seth MacFarlane's reputation.
Not as funny as I thought it would be. The humor isn't consistent with that of what Seth MacFarlane has been doing on Family Guy for years yet I get this sense that this movie was trying hard to be like Family Guy. This is where I got turned off.
There wasn't anything original, there may be a few good and funny moments here and there but at the end it just didn't all fit well. I was a little disappointed by the ending because it left me feeling that there might be a sequel (God I hope not)... Mila Kunis played her role very well and I do have to say that this is a rather OK performance for Wahlberg.
Overall it's not worth the allotted time, it's disappointing. You could be watching something else, there are plenty of funnier movies released recently that'd be more worth your time.
