I was interested in this movie because it did well in theaters and because I wanted to see a movie written by Seth MacFarlane, particularly after he hosted the Oscars and was so absolutely not funny. Ted accurately reflects Seth M.'s moronic 2nd grade sense of humor. If elementary school entirely uncreative homophobic, fart, d$%k, sex, and boob jokes are funny to you then you might enjoy this. Otherwise it is an ENTIRE waste of time. I'm surprised the actors could say some of the lines with a straight face and that they agreed to star in this movie after reading the script. I'm not against crude humor, just be creative or clever with it. MacFarlane is quite literally a writer whose creativity with crude humor is the equivalent of recording a conversation between a group of the least intelligent Frat guys in a room together watching a porn movie and then using that as the basis for the film's dialogue.
The story of a boy who NEVER grew up. Not only can he not live without his teddy bear, they both (boy & bear) PLAY 'Men', that is if you count because you can speak vulgar words, drink and do drugs to excess and have sex.... a 'man'. Maybe if you're a college frat guy, this works. Woe to the girlfriend in this story who only enables her guy. Sorry to tell you folks, that's NOT 'love'. It's stupid trash and yes, I was stupid for watching it!
NO 'stars' deserved by this one.

This is one profanity filled romp. There's a lot of potty humor in there as well. I wouldn't let my kids anywhere near this movie. Having said that, this is one funny movie that had me laughing out loud and it actually had a story. Some of the humor is tasteless to the point of being the opposite of funny, (whatever that is.) I kept waiting to be turned off to the point that I had to turn It off, but that never happened because of the genuinely funny stuff. Grade B.
