Ted is really a rather sweet examination of loyalty, friendship, and love. Wahlberg and Kunis are charming together (though not exactly in a...

Not too many films serve up laughs that just keep on rolling with regularity from beginning to end, but Seth MacFarlane's directorial debut...

Boston Globe

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

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
It's hysterically, gut-bustingly funny.

By Stephanie Zacharek
One of the tricks of Ted -- perhaps its smartest one -- is that everyone, not just John, knows the bear can talk.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
This bromance with rapid-fire quips, however, is undermined by unoriginal scenarios and a long, drawn-out chase scene.

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
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.

Ted is often hilarious, sometimes sweet and, in the spirit of "Family Guy," consistently raunchy. Yet it's seriously overextended and, as...

I I <3 Ted!

By eduardo_soriano
I caught a free screening in Manhattan this past Wednesday. Despite a long and tiring work day I choose to take the hour long trip to Mid-Town and took a chance on Ted. So Glad I did too! The film...

Hilarious

By bdeitemeyer
Definitely funny if you like this sort of crude comedy, I'll probably see it again as I laughed for nearly the entire movie the first time....

Really enjoyable!

By Lyncap
I had no interest in seeing this movie. NONE. I don't watch Family Guy (actually can't stand it), so I don't generally support Seth McF projects. Anyway, Fandango sent me free passes, so I figured...

One Of The Funniest Movies I've Ever Seen

By SteveP21
The movie had a good story line, plus PLENTY of comedy. Seth McFarlane is a comic genius. Mark Whalberg and Mila Kunis were perfect picks for main characters. Def. a MUST GO...

Out of control laughs

By shbenner
There was only one lull towards the end of the movie while everybody is figuring themselves out, but the rest of the film is literally 'fall out of your chair' funny....

Not As Funny As You Expect, But Still Funny

By Reel Reviewer
Personally, I think the movie is So-So, but since "Ted" is a comedy just like all the others of recent years most people will say it's a "Must Go." I decided to split the difference and explain why....

GREAT GREAT GREAT!!

By mikerosner
well see, I'm a huge fan of Seth MacFarlane's Family Guy and this movie employs the same humor only unedited as MUST be the case for Prime-Time Network Television. LAUGH OUT LOUD humor in almost...

Family Guy x 10!!

By tralynnjo
If you are a fan of Family Guy this is a must see movie. There were hardly any moments when I didn't laugh my butt off! This is great humor even if you haven't seen Famliy Guy, but it makes it that...

Not For Kids

By Snow Dog
"Ted". This movie is not for children. That being said... The 80's references were on point, the use of the "F" word is prolific...and funny. Yes this is a movie that will offend someone who is...

Whimsical imaginitive features warped by adult humor make this a unique and watchable film.

By crissandra.stephen
I liked this movie, but I think its one that people can wait for on DVD. The narration of the movie gives it a whimsical appeal and its combination of somewhat cerebral and somewhat slapstick humor...
