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 »
When John answer's Ted's call while riding in the car with Lori, John holds his iPhone upside-down (as evidenced by the lock button and headphone jack) for nearly the entire conversation. See more »
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 »
There are no spoilers here because there is nothing contained within the confines of this motion picture really worth typing out. I find it increasingly disappointing as a human being that people fall for such worthless, low life, gimmicky humour. "Oh wow, look, a teddy is smoking weed, being radically racist/other-things-similar-to-racism and ignorant! Haha oh what a guy, that IS funny!" There is nothing remotely adult (it is basically a movie for young teens who are too blind to see that swearing and insensitivity are not the cake for humour, only the icing) and creative about this movie. (Sure, there is a valid love story about needing to grow up but that's a thin cover that leaks smell on a pot of s**t). Humour in general may be 'immature' but there is a step between intelligent, immature humour and frankly lame, childlike immature humour where if you insert enough insensitive and inappropriate material into a film the creators assume people are dumb enough to clap their hands together and giggle like a baby. Which we obviously are because this movie got a decent rating. I think I'll stick to comidians who have real wit and something worthwhile to get laughs about. Not impressed. Goodbye standards, welcome worthless rubbish, here, take my money!
