     In a world where Mark Wahlberg’s overage slacker can pull feisty young professional Mila Kunis a bear possessed by the spirit of Peter Griffin requires little suspension of disbelief.

     Ted is an irreverent childish comedy that takes an age to get going and has little purpose or direction beyond its titular gimmick.  Yet, like that annoying bloke at a party who insists you have one more drink, Ted wears you down with his unique blend of cute and irritating.  This is a buddy movie:  You, Me And Dupree with fur.

     Seth McFarlane’s comedy flies, just like Family Guy, when it mocks and reveres classic movies.  Similarities to the bond between E.T. and Elliot won’t go unnoticed and Ted features the best homage to Sam J. Jones’ Flash Gordon: ever.

     Most remarkable of all is the effortless believability of a special effects composite in a lead role when, just a few years ago, audiences analysed every pixel of Binks and Gollum.  Ted is an achievement in himself, he just needs to ditch the sidekick and get himself a good agent.

     Verdict ~ If you are looking for subtleties in the relationship between a boy and his toy choose Toy Story.  If you love 80’s Flash (Ah-Ahhhhhhhhh!) it’s Ted all the way.
