TED (2012)
3 and a half out of 5 stars

I was one of those who wanted to watch the movie once I saw the trailer. I mean, the “thunder song” was already a sign of crude and funny things to come!

Narrator: No matter how big a splash you make in this world whether you’re Corey Feldman, Frankie Muniz, Justin Bieber or a talking teddy bear, eventually, nobody gives a shit. 

For those who don’t know, John (Mark Wahlberg) made a wish when he was eight years old and it came true – his teddy bear came alive! Ted became a celebrity, well, briefly. Soon, 27 years have passed and John is in a relationship with Lori (Mila Kunis), who feels that John cannot really grow up with Ted around.

Ted: I look like Snuggles’ accountant.

And the hilarious scenes begin!

Personally, I liked the parts where Ted was on his own, fending himself against the general and creepy public away from John. Especially the one at the back of the grocery stall he works at.

Creepy guy: Are you alone?
Ted: Well, you know, you’re never alone when you’re with Christ.

Of course, who can forget the scene where John tries to guess the white trash name?

And I totally lost it at this part…

Ted: Back off, Susan Boyle!

Well, I feel I do the movie injustice when I write it out because it doesn’t sound as funny as the movie is. While you watch it, keep your eyes open for an uncredited cameo! And of course I’m not going to mention it here, it’s uncredited for a reason.
