What’s new at the cinema

Ted is a deliciously foul-mouthed comedy that employs the magic of digital trickery to bring to life one rotund stuffed bear as a buddy for a lonely boy.

Child and toy become inseparable and the furry scamp and his human owner embark on a series of deranged and debauched misadventures that fully justify the film’s 15 certificate

It’s a simple premise, with the eponymous bear accepted as a talking, skirt-chasing entity by everyone he encounters.
