So I just saw this movie with a friend, and though a bit late, I think it deserves a short review.
Ted is a movie about a guy and a teddy bear. And it’s not a movie for kids. At a young age, the dude, John, wished for his teddybear to be alive. And so it happened. Yes, I’m serious, that’s the actual start of the rather mature-rated movie.
The movie shows a bit of the lifestyle John lives together with Ted. They hang out, smoke pot, get drunk, and so on. Oh and John happens to have a lovely girlfriend. That’s where the somewhat expected scenario of “Ted keeps us from getting closer” comes from. So eventually, Ted gets put out of the house, has to get a job of his own, et cetera, et cetera. Some stuff goes wrong, more thing happens, and for a second you think it’ll end a baww movie.
The plot, though pretty good, isn’t what makes this movie the great one it is though. It’s the hilarity of the whole situation. “Hello, 911? Someone kidnapped my teddybear!” But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There’s a lot of really good jokes and witty comments in there, which mostly come from Ted. His personality really doesn’t fit the body he has (a fluffy, huggable teddybear), and that makes it even better.
Overall, it’s a great movie, and if you haven’t seen it yet, I strongly recommend you do. Also, stick around during the credits, so we don’t look like idiots for being the only ones who do.
