[Review] Ted (2012) : Adult Comedy in a Teddy Bear Form


Director : Seth MacFarlane
Casts : Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Seth MacFarlane (voice only)

"Be careful with what you wish for."

Tampaknya hal tersebut berlaku bagi John Bennett. John Bennett kecil yang tidak mempunyai teman, berharap agar teddy bear hadiah natalnya 'hidup' untuk menemaninya dan hal itu terwujud. Ted terus menemani John hingga dewasa, sampai pada akhirnya sang kekasih, Lori meminta John untuk meninggalkan Ted untuk memulai hidup baru berdua. Itulah cerita dari film tersukses dengan rating dewasa pada tahun 2012. Hal itu agak tidak terduga, tetapi itu salah satu hal yang memotivasi saya untuk menonton film ini, selain trailernya yang lucu itu. Film ini disutradarai dan ditulis oleh 'Ted sendiri', maksudnya pengisi suara Ted.

That proverb applies to John Bennett. Little John Bennett has no friends and wishes that his teddy bear could alive. His wish comes true ! Ted, the teddy bear accompanies him until in his 35, but her girlfriend, Lori asks him to leave Ted in order to create their own life. It's a synopsis about the highest-grossing R-rated movie this year. The box office gross is unpredictable, but it is one of the reasons why I want to watch this movie. This movie is directed and written by 'Ted himself', I mean the dubber.


Film ini banyak menggunakan lelucon yang kasar, jorok, rasis dan bahkan menyindir para artis dan beberapa film, seperti Katy Perry, Justin Bieber dan Brandon Routh dan film Superman yang dibintanginya. Ada beberapa humor yang kurang bisa dimengerti oleh orang-orang Indonesia mungkin dikarenakan humornya agak berbeda. Efek animasi live action Ted masih kurang rapi. Ted masih terlihat sebagai hasil editan di beberapa bagian. Film ini berhasil menghibur melalui karakter Ted yang lucu sekaligus super annoying. Ted yang tadinya boneka beruang yang lugu dan polos berubah menjadi boneka beruang yang suka menghisap ganja dan berbicara kasar. Mark Wahlberg cukup sukses dalam memerankan pria dewasa yang masih suka bersikap kekanak-kanakkan. Malah, Mila Kunis terlihat sangat biasa saja dan terkesan seperti wanita cantik yang menjadi hiasan film ini. Cerita film ini sangat sederhana dan sudah cukup banyak film yang menggunakan jalan cerita seperti.

This movie has a lot of rude, dirty and racist joke. It even has a sarcastic joke about other celebrities and movies, such as Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and Brandon Routh in his Superman. There are some joke that might be hard to be understood by some people outside US. The effect of Ted is not perfect. Ted still looks like a 'creation' in some part of this movies. This movie success to entertain the audience with Ted, who is cute and super annoying at the same time. It's funny to see the transformation from an innocent teddy bear to a drug junky teddy bear. Mark Wahlberg is quite successful as an adult man who still acts like a kid, while Mila Kunis is not that special, she looks if she is just an addition to this movie. This story is very simple, it might be too simple because there a ton of movies that use this kind of story too.


Secara keseluruhan, film ini menghibur dan memiliki hal yang ingin disampaikan. Akan tetapi, formula cerita film ini sudah terlalu banyak digunakan di film lainnya, sehingga film ini menjadi tidak spesial. Namun, film ini masih lebih baik dari The Watch yang juga berrating dewasa dan banyak menggunakan humor kasar. Film ini memiliki beberapa cameo yang cukup terkenal, seperti Ryan Reynolds dan Norah Jones.

Overall, this movie is entertaining and has something to be told, but the 'formula' has been used a lot by other movies. So, there is nothing special about this movie. Nevertheless, this movie is still better than The Watch, that is a R-rated movie with a lot of rude and dirty jokes. This movie also has some cameos that are known in this industry, such as Ryan Reynolds and Norah Jones.

Overall : 6/10
