As a young boy, John Bennett made a wish for his teddy bear to come to life and be his friend forever. Now thirty-five years old, John is still friends with his drinking and pot smoking bear, Ted, but is also trying to salvage his four year relationship with his girlfriend, Lori. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “Ted”.

∙ John wakes up the day after Christmas to find Ted is alive. When he reveals Ted to his parents, panic ensues. John’s mom grabs a hand held, electric mixer. The cord is wound tightly around the mixer four times. When the dad yells “Helen, get my gun,” the cord is wrapped loosely around the mixer three times with part of it hanging down in front of the mom. The cord is back in its original position when John says “Yeah, dad”.

∙ John gets in bed with Lori when she’s talking about the hikers being found. His right arm is tucked behind his head. It stays that way during the scene, but in the right side view of John when he says “I’m a classy broad”, his right arm is draped over his chest. It’s back under his head in the next overhead view. His arm then alternates from being across his chest in right side views and behind his head in overhead views.

∙ Ted is working the cash register at the grocery store. In the front view of him, when he says “Thank you, come again…”, his handing the woman her receipt. She begins to pick her bag up and it cuts to a view of Ted turning around. It shows the view behind him, but the woman is no longer there.

∙ CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! Ted is coming down the stairs, trying to escape Danny and his son. A close-up of Danny shows his holding (and drinking) from a glass while watching the Tiffany video. It cuts to a right side view and he’s still holding the glass. The scene cuts to a close-up of Ted with Danny in the background and Danny is dancing with his arms by his side and nothing is in his hands.

“Ted” (2012) stars Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, the voice of Seth MacFarlane, Joel McHale, Giovanni Ribisi, Patrick Warburton, Jessica Barth and the voice of Patrick Stewart. It runs 106 minutes and is rated R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language, and some drug use.
