REVIEW Ted. in a sentence, is an oversized obnoxious, wasteful, curseful sentient being. His jokes are akin to family guy. Notwithstanding, his curses and offensive jokes was all it took to get this movie going. Mark Wahlberg, the normal serious looking dude who contributes dryly a little bit to Ted’s jokes.His girlfriend, Lori (Mila Kunis) had an acceptable performance though not serious. To the plot, Ted didn’t provide us with gripping suspense as compared to its counterpart movies. This I blame greatly on the makers. I was so not surprised when I discovered the makers of Family guy was behind Ted.
Ted’s storyline could just be simply explained as ‘goodbye: time to grow up’ However, The character Ted himself is the star of the movie, a wonderful creature who seemed so real, his humour, appearance is enough to make you laugh. Such sights and behavious you’ll never expect from a teddy bear.
Ted himself personally saved the movie.
