Look, John... loves you very much. More than anything in the world, and he's... fallin' to fuckin' pieces without ya. Y'know, he knows he screwed up huge, but, you gotta believe me: it wasn't all his fault... Alright? I told him to bale on you, that night at Rex's. And he said, "No."... He said, "No." He was gonna stay there with you, and I twisted his arm, Lori... I promise, I will leave and I will never come back. Alright? He'll be all yours.
Ted, that's a really nice offer, but I don't...

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 »
After all the TV hype about the upcoming release of Ted, I was eagerly looking forward to seeing it. What a huge let-down!
I can't blame this on cultural differences and simply say that American humour is different because I frequently laugh my socks off at Two-and- a-half Men and The Big Bang Theory on TV. Considering the inordinately high overall rating that this film has on IMDb I can only assume that it's me because I don't think I even smiled (let alone laughed!) once during it. The whole concept was ridiculous (is THAT funny?). Like, would the whole adult world happily accept a talking, walking, dope- smoking stuffed Teddy bear? Is this an indication of the world's mentality in 2012? I sure hope not!
I honestly think that, in years to come, Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and, perhaps most of all, Patrick Stewart will deeply regret ever having anything to do with this load of utter crap! They are both excellent actors and I find it hard to believe that they were so hard up financially that they needed the work. I note with particular interest that Mark has no less than five post-Ted movies - and Mila has six - in various stages of production so I wonder what on earth made them demean themselves with this. It's almost like prostitution of their art and talents!
I believe there is a difference between realistic expletive language (like when the story centres around working men or underworld criminal gangs) but the gratuitous profanity in this film has no usefulness whatsoever unless, of course, it makes those of limited intelligence laugh - but do our filmmakers need to pander to this sort of audience? I guess it all comes down to who spends the most at the box-office. (more prostitution!)
Basically, the story-line is absolute rubbish and an insult to the intelligence, the plot and dialogue are NOT the least bit funny and the romantic aspect defies belief. Mila should have run a mile the day she first learned about Ted and never come back!
As usual, I stuck it out to the bitter end, because I am the eternal optimist and live in hope that something enjoyable will develop (as often happens in movies that start out a bit slowly or stupidly) but, in the case of Ted, I wish I had ejected it after the first five minutes! That's over an hour-and-a-half of my life I'll never get back! Sorry, I cannot recommend this movie for any reason - there isn't even any nice scenery in it!
