Oh man, nothing like some freaky stuff.  I didn't watch it, but I wouldn't mind a few good horror flicks if anyone knows any.

On the idea of self-cannibalism, why do some snakes eat themselves??

Ted -
So here we have the vulgar teddy bear movie. And that's really all it is. There is absolutely nothing else going for this movie besides the pot smoking, and ridiculously vulgar, teddy bear. You could have substituted a normal guy in the bears place and no one would have(should have?) cared about this movie. Thing is, the schtick grows tiresome about 5 minutes into the movie. There's only so many F-bombs a toy bear can drop before you roll your eyes and hope they just move on already with the story.
And how exactly did the bear get this way? His BFF John, and the only influence we are aware of, is your typical Nice Guy, but with a few issues.
Everything about this movie has been done 10,000 times before, just without a talking bear.
It went on too long, and was only funny in a few spots. Once again, I am baffled by what the general populace latches on to. This makes money while genuinely great movies get ignored. BTW, I actually have found Family Guy funny when I've watched it here and there, so that can't be held against me in my judgement here.
And will someone please feed Ms. Kunis? My god, is she skinny. Yuck.

I actually agree insofar I think it could have been a lot funnier than it was.  The concept was great, but not enough "ha-ha"s, and it kept dipping into emotional territory that it really didn't need do (the movie would have been better if it was more about just Wahlberg and Ted).

I'm willing to listen. Tell us why you liked it. I think it's obvious I'm a movie nut, but I also am damn curious as to why someone may like a movie that I find detestable. You just thought it was funny? Or did you appreciate the underlying meaning behind it all? At least until the ending put a halt to whatever it was they were trying to say. Because it did seem for awhile that the movie was taking potshots at all those ridiculous "manchild" movies made by Adam Sandler and the like. 
I DID like the opening that took place in the 80's. Pure nostalgia there.

It's seth macfarlane humor, plain and simple. Dick and fart jokes, 80's and 90's references, and a story that's overshadowed by stupidty. There's nothing hiding, it's all right there. I loved it for its hilarity, but I appreciate it for its genuine simplicity. It'a not trying to convey some deeper meaning like buds over babes or if you dream hard enough you get what you want, it's simply a nonsense story with good actors and obvious gags at a number of things. I'm only being a shmuck about it because that movie was the only good thing to happen that weekend when it was released in my life....and let me tell you, I'll NEVER forget that weekend....most horrible set of days since my mom died...

Of course it was also the week before spiderman, and 3 weeks later TDKR aka the best fucking movie yet.

Ahh, ok, then. You see, I absolutely HATE D & F jokes. I prefer sly and subtle humor. Family Guy is funny because it's a mix of the two.
I totally get the connection thing for you. I also have certain movies that remind of good or bad times in life.
Quality be damned, I love them (or hate in some regards) anyway. 

Have you ever heard of MaryAnn Johanson? One of my favorite film reviewers. Even when I don't agree with her, she writes a good review. This was her take on Ted:
http://www.flickfilosopher.com/blog/2012/08/ted_review.html
I was surprised she liked it, as she is normally "above" this kind of movie, but she saw something there that I didn't. I can appreciate that, just like how I can appreciate that you like it simply for what it is on the surface. Whatever works, you know.

I get the feeling he's still having the kind of financial trouble that leads you to take any job you can get.

Ha! But then I'd have to pay money to see a shitty movie. Sorry to disappoint my loyal fans.

I DO have Doctor Zhivago and A Very Long Engagement coming up for all those people waiting on my review of those.
