Sex & Nudity


A teddy bear and a human have sex, only the woman's legs are shown. Lasts for a few seconds.

A teddy bear tries to impress a girl at a supermarket by humping the cash register, sucking on a candy bar and squirting soap on his face, though it looks like semen.

A woman's breasts and abdomen are shown for a couple seconds.

Lance Armstrong's bronzed "nut" is briefly seen.

More crude and sexual references

Violence & Gore


A man's hand is stabbed briefly (a bit of blood).

A long, bloodless scuffle. And another shorter one taking place at a party.

A boy rips off Ted's ear.

Ted is being abducted.



56 uses of 'fuck', 43 of 'shit', 8 of 'ass(hole)', 3 of 'dick', and 2 slang terms for sex ("bang" and "nail"). One use of 'cunt', but it's viewed in a negative light.


Ted and John use bongs to smoke marijuana in a couple of lengthy scenes.

John and Ted pour cocaine onto a table briefly. We don't see them take it.

Ted is seen drinking beer a couple times.


Some parts may be unpleasant, but on the whole, it's not as edgy as Family Guy.


11+ This movie is fairly tame but it made out to be really rude and innapropriate but really isn/t that bad.
