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.
Two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party and become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted "heroes" get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.
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.
Kelly and Mac are settling down in a quiet neighborhood with their newborn child, until the frat brothers move into the house next door. Teddy is the President, and Pete is his right hand man, and they're quick to accept friendship when Kelly and Mac introduce themselves as the neighbors. Night after night, Mac asks Teddy to lower the fraternity's noise, even accepting the invitation to the party one evening. When Teddy goes back on his word to keep the partying down, Mac calls the police to deal with the problem. The police quickly blame Mac for their presence, and the war begins. As the family feuds with the frat brothers, things get hilariously dangerous and the fraternity ends up on thin ice with their college. After receiving their final warning and being placed on probation, Mac and Kelly pull a prank so ingenious that Teddy and Mac are forced to respond. All hell breaks loose, from Robert DeNiro parties to Christopher Mintz-Plasse having sex in the bushes, this comedy shows how... Written by
According to the film's actors and director Nicholas Stoller, the twin girls Elise Vargas & Zoey Vargas who played Stella were incredibly well behaved and were always smiling and happy. The only time one of the babies became upset and started to cry was when Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne yelled at each other while filming their fight scene. See more »

I confess my review is based on only perhaps the first 30 minutes. I lasted until Lisa Kudrow came into it, and then I really did want to throw up.
However much I searched, with an open mind, for some redeeming spark in script, actors, or direction with which to drive me to stick it out, I simply couldn't. This is pure, unadulterated drivel.
During what would have been the back half of the movie had I not switched off, I checked reviews on IMDb. I couldn't believe, page after page, that the 1/10 scores somehow added to a 7.0 total rating at the end.
As with the movie, I never got to the end of the reviews. I tallied 2- 3/10 from the several pages I read. Its average ranking rates above many of what one could call the seminal and decent movies you've seen over your viewing lifetime. Statistically, the remainder of the reviews must rate this near god-like to raise the average rating to what it is.
To me, that stinks as much as the sloppy turd this movie is.
