Hollywood have been struggling to add some freshness to their rom coms so this time they take help of a teddy bear who talks and make it a bad ass one who rattles off abuses like nobody's business and smokes weed all day.
John is a lonely child with no friends. One Christmas Eve he is gifted a teddy bear by his parents. A magical wish makes teddy talk. On growing up John( Mark Wahlberg) gets to date Lori (Mila Kunis) thanks to the confidence he got after being friends with Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) . But now at the age of 35 John has to choose between his best friend and his hot girl friend.
Seth MacFarlane writes directs and is the voice of ted. In short he rocks the show here. Some very funny writing makes this film rise above the ordinary. There is adult humour, fart jokes, throwback to Flash Gordon (whose reference we might not get here) and the hot Mila Kunis without any skin show (minus points for that)in case you get bored of watching the bromance between Mark Wahlberg and Ted.
The Giovanni Ribisi's track about him being obsessed about Ted and wanting to own it for his son is the only irritating part in the film. It jars with the comic tone of the film.
Word of mouth - Ted is wicked, abusive, and insanely funny. It will make you stay away from gifting a teddy bear to a child.
Rating - 3.5 (good)
Ticket meter - worth 200 bucks
