"Ted isn't for everybody sure TRUTHTELLER, but it certainly is more than your standard (and usually tame) 'gross-out' comedy - from my point of view I didn't go into the cinema expecting to be blown away by the plot or have a life changing experience - the plot is merely a (fairly weak) vehicle for the jokes, and to be honest the humour is really just a 15 certificate extension of Family Guy… but the point is that I did go in expecting a certain level (and standard) of comedy.
My 4 stars were based on the fact that I enjoyed a film I was EXPECTING to be at a certain level - it might have been 5 stars but for the fact that some of the jokes don't quite hit the mark. That aside, to give a film one star - not because you thought it was badly made or down to a poor plot, or even not funny enough - but because it offended your own personal sensibilities and beliefs says more about your own judgement - seriously, if you have a sensitive sense of humour don't buy a Jimmy Carr DVD, if you're sensitive about religion don't buy a Richard Dawkins book, and if you're sensitive about offensive movies don't go and see an offensive movie, and then moan about how offended you were."
