A man wrestles with the lingering consequences of a childhood wish in this live-action comedy from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. As a young boy, John Bennett wanted nothing more than for his beloved teddy bear Ted (voice of MacFarlane) to come to life. Incredibly, that wish was granted. But now that John (Mark Wahlberg) is all grown up, his boyhood dream has become a nightmare nuisance. Mila Kunis, Joel McHale, and Giovanni Ribisi co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
i thought this movie was in very poor taste, i think i'd rather hang onto my memories of stuffed animals being cute and cuddly..the younger generation seems to like this movie but personally as a senior citizen this is not at all my taste.
Mediocre comedy. I was really looking forward to this movie, and was there opening weekend to give it a go. I was sitting there, popcorn and soda in hand only to be met with lame cutaway gags and a teddy bear with a dirty mouth. I know the teddy with the dirty mouth was the plot of the movie, but I just feel there could have been jokes that didnt focus directly and only on that fact.
All said and done, it is not a terrible movie, and I am not completely shunning it. I am just saying that I was expecting more. This movie is still worth a rent to check out.
I mean, it's a talking teddy bear. It's a Seth McFarlane movie. I wasn't expecting this epic oscar winner. It was hilarious...just keep your expectations in check--it's probably not the funniest thing you'll ever see, but it's pretty darn funny. :)
In spots funny and also heartwarming fable about a boy with no friends who wishes upon a shooting star that his toy teddy bear could talk. And talk indeed he does. As time goes on he manages to impede the boy's love life and in the end a valuable lesson about love and friendship is learned by all. Good and entertaining performances by Mark Wahlberg, Milla Kunis and as the talking teddy bear..."Ted" Seth Mac Farlane who also directed and wrote the screenplay.
