Consensus: Ted's "romance versus bromance" plot is familiar, but the film's held aloft by the high-concept central premise and a very funny (albeit inconsistent) script.

Everything goes on too long -- Ted's carousing, Lori's watchful waiting, John's wistful indecision.

A very funny comedy with a very obscene humor, which curiously doesn't come out offensive from a teddy bear's mouth, but it is also surprisingly warm… More

The ending was stupid and resolved none of the issues that had led to their relationship crisis.

I don't get how some films (mainly comedy) at times seem to take an old actor/franchise and completely flaunt him/it like product placement. In this film… More
