Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Ted is really a rather sweet examination of loyalty, friendship, and love. Wahlberg and Kunis are charming together (though not exactly in a Cary Grant / Audrey Hepburn kind of way), and both manage to play this thing - at least the challenges-of-a-serious-relationship part of this thing - straight.

A crass, foul-mouthed, mostly hilarious, surprisingly sentimental bromance.

True chemistry is hard to find. And by some stroke of movie magic - or sheer skill - Wahlberg and the bear make a pretty great team.

For all of its transgressive plush-toy sex and screw-'em humor, the plot is pretty standard stuff.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Ted is often hilarious, sometimes sweet and, in the spirit of "Family Guy," consistently raunchy. Yet it's seriously overextended and, as the premise wears ever thinner, frantically overproduced.
