As a native Bostonian suburbanite, I felt compelled to go see "Ted". The jokes were hit or miss, but more hit than miss. However, I probably found some of the regional humor funnier from the familiarity of things I've grown up with. I'm still chuckling over the teddy bear impression of Boston girls getting laid. As always I appreciated the local scenery and knew most of the facades/addresses having lived and/or worked in the city for 20 years. General rule of thumb is that a Boston-based movie requires either a Wahlberg, Damon, or Affleck to not suffer from universal criticism about horribly rendered accents, and this holds true once again. For me it was worth the price of admission, despite the progression towards sappiness. The whole Fenway Park cameo thing has jumped the shark though.
