Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin, and Wellesley Wild wrote and co-directed the 2012 American adult comedy movie Ted, which marks MacFarlane’s feature picture debut. The main character’s voice and motion capture were provided by Seth MacFarlane, and the movie stars Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis in the lead roles, with Joel McHale and Giovanni Ribisi appearing in supporting parts.


The movie centres on Boston native John Bennett, whose boyhood dream brings his stuffed bear pal Ted to life. The development of John’s connection with his girlfriend, Lori Collins, is also hampered as Ted and John’s friendship becomes older.


Firstly, Eight-year-old John Bennett, an only kid who lives in the Boston suburb of Norwood, Massachusetts, desires, much to his parents’ distress, that his new Christmas present, a gigantic teddy bear named Ted, would come to life and become his best friend. The wish comes true as a shooting star appears, causing news to spread and briefly making Ted famous.

27 years later, John, who is now 35, and Ted are still in Boston, where they continue to be close friends leading hedonistic lives. Lori Collins and John started dating after they met at a dance club. Lori wants to propose to John as their fourth wedding anniversary approaches, but she worries Ted would stop him from moving forward in life.


After their anniversary meal, they discover Ted at home with a number of prostitutes, one of whom is urinating on the floor. John is hesitant to order Ted to leave, but he is eventually persuaded to do so.

John helps Ted get a place of his own and a job at a grocery store, where he starts dating Tami-Lynn, one of his coworkers. When Lori discovers that John has been reluctantly continuing to spend most of his time with Ted while skipping work and blaming it on her, she becomes upset.


Rex, the womanizing manager of Lori, invites John and Lori to a party, but Ted entices John to a party at his apartment by pressuring him to see Sam J. Jones, the star of their favorite movie, Flash Gordon. John only plans to stay for a short while, but he ends himself getting swept up in the event.

There, Lori runs into John and clumsily breaks things off with him. John, who is enraged, disowns Ted and accuses him of destroying his relationship with Lori.


Violent altercation

There has been a violent altercation in the hotel room of John. So, ted and John were trying to normalize their friendship. Ted arranges for singer Norah Jones to assist in mending John’s relationship with Lori by having John perform a song during Lori and Rex’s attendance at her concert.

He gets heckled as he exits the stage after crooning the Octopussy theme tune, “All Time High,” by Rita Coolidge. If Lori talks to John after being moved by the attempt, Ted will leave them alone permanently and acknowledges his role in John’s relapse. Ted follows Lori back to her apartment.


Despite the fact that Donny, a crazy stalker who grew up idolizing Ted, abducted Ted, Lori is persuaded. Ted will become Donny’s nasty son Robert’s new plaything. Ted succeeds in getting to a phone to call John but is quickly apprehended by Donny and Robert.

When John and Lori find out that Ted is in danger, they hunt down Donny’s home and go to his aid. The chase ends at Fenway Park when John punches Robert and knocks him out. However, Ted is hurt during the pursuit and is left completely in pieces as he falls into the field.


Anguished John and Lori rush back to her apartment and try in vain to fix Ted because they don’t want to lose him. While John is sleeping, Lori, makes a wish on a shooting star.

The following morning, Ted is awakened as a consequence of the request (though he initially makes the impression that he is brain dead). And rejoins John and Lori, urging them to pick up their romance.


Marriage of Lori

Finally, John asks Lori to marry him, and she says yes. A few months later, Sam Jones officiates the marriage of John and Lori, and Ted is content to live alone while continuing his relationship with Tami-Lynn.

Sam Jones makes an effort to revive his career and relocates to a studio apartment with Brandon Routh, according to the movie’s narrator (who starred in the “god-awful Superman movie”). Rex stops trying to find Lori, experiences severe depression, and eventually passes away from Lou Gehrig’s disease.


The Boston Police Department detains Donny for kidnapping Ted. But the case is later dismissed because of the implausible nature of the events. Taylor Lautner is created after Robert employs a personal trainer. And loses a large amount of weight, and changes his name.
