Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sure, MacFarlane, you can make us laugh, but it's time to grow up. Seriously."
‑ Ben Walters, Time Out
"You'll feel the warmth and camaraderie of a Bostonian and his little sentient bear."
‑ Laremy Legel, Film.com
"A surprisingly funny and crude comedy about a man's relationship with a talking teddy bear."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"I was expecting something more than repetitive jokes, incessant pop culture references and rampant misogyny."
‑ Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
"The creator of TV's "Family Guy" directs his first live-action movie-in which he gets to say and do all the profane, politically incorrect and just plain gross things he can't say or do on television. And a lot of it is pretty funny."
‑ Michael Sauter, Film Journal International
"Everything goes on too long -- Ted's carousing, Lori's watchful waiting, John's wistful indecision."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"I tried to resist but couldn't."
‑ Bob Mondello, NPR
"It is a film that seems to have an endless middle."
‑ Violet Lucca, Film Comment Magazine
"Hit and miss humour with problematic undertones buoyed by an intriguing premise and appealing performances from the film's human cast."
‑ Catherine Bray, Film4
"MacFarlane is reduced to making increasingly laboured references to the 1980s."
‑ Andy Lea, Daily Star
"It's a goofy premise pursued with crass -- as well as sentimental -- relish."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"The idea of a toy that comes to life - and then won't go away - isn't a bad one. Too bad that "Ted" manages to overstay its welcome without ever really coming to life itself."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Soulless, angry-white-guy comedy at its worst. This is a smug, nasty little number."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"A refreshingly original idea backed by excellent performances and terrifically funny writing."
‑ Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
"Those who detest Family Guy will not be converted but fans will surely lap up a film that - whilst sometimes flawed - is rude, crude and often very funny."
‑ Laurence Boyce, The Sabotage Times
