What’s it about?
As the result of a childhood wish, John Bennett’s teddy bear, Ted, came to life and has been by John’s side ever since – a friendship that’s tested when Lori, John’s girlfriend of four years, wants more from their relationship.
What did we think?
Today we present a multiple choice review to reflect individual demographics.
If you like (tick all that apply):
[ ] The 80s
[ ] Family Guy
[ ] Political Incorrectness
[ ] Puerile humour
[ ] A little crudity
[ ] Flash Gordon
[ ] pop-culture references
[ ] a cute but foul-mouthed main character
0-1 ticks: Ted is not the movie you seek. Move along.
2-3 ticks: You’ll get a chuckle or two out of Ted but it might not be for you.
4-5 ticks: Ted is an enjoyable movie that provides both laughs and fuzzies (warm fuzzies that is).
6+ ticks: Ted is frickin’ hilarious.
Personally, as a geek-child of the 80s with a dislike for Political Correctness I roared with laughter throughout. There’s probably a bit too much 80s love for younger people but there’ll still be enough for most people to appreciate and enjoy.
