Wall Street Journal - 06/28/2012
"TED is often hilarious, sometimes sweet and, in the spirit of FAMILY GUY, consistently raunchy."
Chicago Sun-Times - 06/28/2012 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The funniest movie character so far this year is a stuffed teddy bear. And the best comedy screenplay so far is TED..."
Los Angeles Times - 06/28/2012
"[A] riotous, ribald new RRR-rated comedy....While nothing is sacred, the sacrilege comes with just enough sweetness to offset the salt."
Box Office - 06/25/2012 4 stars out of 5 -- "Movies don't get much funnier than TED....It's hilarious and rollicking fun from FAMILY GUY creator Seth MacFarlane..."
Hollywood Reporter - 06/22/2012
"Not too many films serve up laughs that just keep on rolling with regularity from beginning to end, but Seth MacFarlane's directorial debut does so and without any feeling of strain."
USA Today - 06/27/2012
"[TED] is high-concept and filled with occasional bits of genius and a lot of raunchiness."
Total Film - 08/01/2012 4 stars out of 5 -- "Wahlberg hits every note....If you've already bought into the type of off-centre world that MacFarlane's conjured before, you'll enjoy seeing that world fleshed out..."
A.V. Club - 06/28/2012
"As a stunted manchild and his incorrigible best friend, Wahlberg and MacFarlane have a wonderfully lived-in chemistry..." -- Grade: B
Sight and Sound - 08/01/2012
"[I]t's a film that relies on the comic potential of random squibs of pop culture, all-in-good-fun offensiveness and state-of-the-art dirty puppet humour..."
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.
