Fresh: I tried to resist but couldn't.
Rotten: Everything goes on too long -- Ted's carousing, Lori's watchful waiting, John's wistful indecision.
Fresh: It's a goofy premise pursued with crass -- as well as sentimental -- relish.

THE FUNNIEST, RAUNCHIEST FILM OF THE YEAR!
It was only a matter of time before Seth MacFarlane brought his brilliantly twisted brand of humor to the big screen, and boy, did he deliver. "Ted" is a vulgar, no-holds-barred smorgasbord of obscene sight gags, random pop culture references, and some of the dirtiest dialogue you'll ever hear at the movies. It's one of those rare R-rated comedies that's just as funny as it is unique, with a screenplay that knows no boundaries to the crudeness of its humor and a memorable cast of characters that take full comedic advantage of the screen time they have. Honestly, watching this film with my friends was one of the best cinematic experiences I've had in quite a while, and I'd gladly watch it again.
The story follows John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), a grown man-child whose cherished teddy bear came to life as the result of a childhood wish and hasn't left his side since. His longtime girlfriend (Mila Kunis) wants to move their relationship forward, but it's almost impossible to do so with Ted in the picture. Will John finally grow up and or will he choose friendship over love?
For a comedy about a talking teddy bear, "Ted" really delivers the goods. There are multiple obscure nods to the cult 1980 film "Flash Gordon", and the way the screenwriters manage to infuse the star of that flick into the script is simply genius. It's also worth noting that the the cast is mostly made up of "Family Guy" voice actors (no surprise there), and even a few surprise cameos from some well-known celebs. Speaking of the cast, Wahlberg and Kunis are remarkably believable in their efforts to realistically interact with a foul-mouthed stuffed animal. They're committed to their characters the whole time, giving them much more relaxed and relatable personalities than you'd be led to believe. But don't be fooled. Ted is still the real star of the show, and with his hilariously offensive remarks and edgy Bostonian accent, how could he not be? MacFarlane voices the bear with a sense of charm and sporadic wit, and the moments he and Wahlberg share in the first act are just priceless (in particular, the "Thunder Buddies" song).
Although "Ted" is a consistently hysterical movie from start to finish, it does have its share of issues. There's a forgettable subplot involving Ted and a disturbingly obsessed father and son that only leads to a predictable climax, and the overall flow and pacing of the story aren't as smooth as they should be, but nevertheless, I still had an absolute blast watching this film. The gags are fast-paced and joyfully crude, the characters are charming and oftentimes heartfelt, and the script is surprisingly level-headed and mature, especially considering the unabashed lewdness of its material. For any fan of "Family Guy", "American Dad", and "The Cleveland Show", "Ted" is a must-see. As for everyone else, I definitely recommend renting it.
By the way, did anyone else notice that the current Tomatometer rating for this movie is 69%? Classic.
This movie is BY FAR the best comedy of the year hands down! I couldn't stop laughing when I saw it, neither could anyone at my screening for that matter. I highly recommend this raunchy comedy that's completely original and refreshing.
