The critical consensus

MacFarlane has created a lovable, unique adult comedy that bears comparison with the likes of Bad Santa for the way in which it makes laughing at things that are ‘wrong’ seem so right.

****(*)Rob Carnevale, The List, 17/07/2012

A fabulous first live-action effort, combining R-rated hilarity with skilled storytelling as it slips some real heart into the stuffing of a toy bear.

****(*)Tony Horkins, Total Film, 23/07/2012

The film does a good job of skewering this peculiarly male desire to remain a child while squeezing the last drop of humour from it.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 26/07/2012

Ted is a movie that gets even funnier as co-writer MacFarlane (who also provides his voice) pushes the envelope into ever darker, deeper realms of vulgarity.

*****David Edwards, Daily Record, 26/07/2012

Funnier than the average bear.

***(*)(*)Chris Tookey, Daily Mail, 27/07/2012

The bottom line is that I laughed and didn’t feel guilty about it.

***(*)(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 29/07/2012

Walhberg's man-child charms and MacFarlane's trusty voicework makes Ted and unlikely but hugely likeable buddy movie.

***(*)(*)Adam Woodward, Little White Lies, 31/07/2012

Crass, supremely silly and very, very funny, Ted is the comedy of the summer.

****(*)Phil de Semlyen, Empire Online, 31/07/2012

All in, a very naughty film, and one to watch with a bear rather than mother.

****(*)Alison Rowat, The Herald, 02/08/2012

Ted has nothing much to offer in terms of subtlety and sensitivity, but there are plenty of laughs.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 02/08/2012

If you’re in the mood for something raucous, rude and very silly, Ted should keep you entertained. Just be warned: Toy Story it ‘aint.

***(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express, 02/08/2012

Wahlberg is game as the stooge, but neither of them is a patch on Mr Derek and Basil Brush.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 03/08/2012

If the story is lazy, the jokes are even lazier.

Nicholas Barber, The Independent on Sunday, 05/08/2012
