User Reviews

 
One of the worst comedies I have ever seen.
5 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After seeing the good user reviews for Ted my expectations were actually raised a little. The trailers didn't seem too funny to me, but I'm a big fan of Family Guy and Seth MacFarlane and thought that it would be at least as funny as the average FG episode.

Well after seeing the movie I have to say that Seth MacFarlane, Mila Kunis, and Mark Whalberg have all sunk to new all-time lows. I can't believe a movie like this would get backed by a studio. The jokes are even more low brow than South Park (a show I can't stand) and the plot relies on fart jokes, constant weed smoking, and cliché characters that try way too hard to get a laugh and overact in almost every scene.

I can't imagine that anyone would find this funny, other than maybe somebody so high or so drunk that they find poop on the floor and farting hilarious.

The theater was pretty full for an afternoon show and other than the seriously stoned dudes behind me, there were very few people in the theater that laughed at most of the jokes. I had a few chuckles and a half laugh, but no lol moments.

I honestly started feeling bad for the actors and began wondering if they actually read the script before they agreed to do this movie, or if they just trusted that anything by Seth MacFarlane had to be funny.

I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone. It really is bad beyond belief, but if you don't believe me, then check it out and be prepared to see somewhat respectable actors sink to the lowest of lows.
