"Ted" might have been a clever idea, except it settled for being
lazy and cheesy. Yes, a teddy bear with a trash mouth is wickedly charming for
oh, about five minutes. After that, there needs to be something more to hold
the movie together besides the relational dynamic of immature middle-aged man
(Mark Wahlberg) trying to grow up for his increasingly-impatient girlfriend
(Mila Kunis). “Ted” is a foul-mouthed, smarmy comedy skit that lasted too
long and got very stale.
