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
The language and content ruined this movie and we were unable to get even to the halfway point before getting totally and completely disgusted with it and ejected it, then sealing in in the return envelope and returning it to the store. Hollywood has gone to hell in a handbasket and can neither develop an original idea nor put out a decent film without extremely unneeded language and sexual content in order to attempt to sell movies.
This is what America has been degraded to.
Cursing doesn't bother me that much, but good grief, could we get two sentences without a MotherFer or GD or other flavorful four letter word? Seriously, when will these people realize you don't have to fill your movie with curse words to be funny.
I really didn't want to see this, but then my husband rented it and it was so funny. I really liked Mark Wahlberg in The Other Guys, so I already knew his acting would be funny, and the bear was hilarious. Don't miss this just because the preview looked dumb, the story was good.
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.
