Ted (2012)

14 mistakes

Directed by: Seth MacFarlane

Starring: Joel McHale, Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Seth MacFarlane

Genres: Comedy

Deliberate mistake: When the news shows Ted being arrested at an airport, Ted gives the camera the finger. When he does this, his hand is censored, but Ted doesn't actually have any fingers.


Audio problem: After John and Ted's falling out, Ted comes and knocks on the glass doors. The sound is of a knock which would be impossible since Ted's hands are made of material.


Continuity mistake: When Ted is captive and calls John on his iPhone, in one shot it's the right way up to his ear and then it's suddenly upside down.

Continuity mistake: When John is sitting on the couch eating cereal, the box of cereal disappears and then reappears.

Revealing mistake: In the flashback of four years ago to the night that John met Lori, when he accidentally pushes her to the floor, it is a dummy that hits the floor.

Liam D

Continuity mistake: In the end of the film when Ted comes back to life, Lori comes into the room with her hair behind her shoulders. it switches from behind her shoulders to in front of her shoulders then back again between shots.


Plot hole: Ted calls on John to tell him that he saw Lori leaving her apartment with her boss. How did he find him? He turns up not only at the right hotel but the right room! They have had no contact since their fight after the party and Ted hasn't been asking around after John as he tells him he 'just saw' Lori leaving with her boss. So how did he find John? Is he psychic?


Continuity mistake: In the park scene where three women are taking a picture with Ted you can see a woman in a blue top walking by. Then in the shot of Mark Wahlberg you can see the woman walking past again.


Deliberate mistake: When Ted talks on his phone he places the phone in the position where a human ear would be located, yet Ted's ears are located on the top of his head.

Continuity mistake: When John & Lori are lying in bed talking (right before the thunderstorm), when you see John from his right side, his right arm is up and under his head. When you see him from Lori's side (his left), his right arm is down. The camera angles change frequently and his arm keeps switching depending on the angle.


Continuity mistake: After John and Lori crash into the rear of Donny's car, the front of their car is visibly smashed in. However, when we see their car later it seems more or less undamaged except for a damaged number plate.


Factual error: The film starts at Christmas in 1985, and we see various kids opening their toys, including one child who gleefully unwraps an NES Action Set. While the NES was out in the US in 1985, the Action Set wasn't released until 1988.

Jon Sandys

Continuity mistake: When Sam Jones punches a hole In Ted's wall then you see the Asian guy, we can see in between shots the hole getting smaller then bigger.

Continuity mistake: When Ted is falling down, the bad guy pulls him with the left arm. In the next shot the bad guy is grabbing back with his right arm.

Narrator: Now if there's one thing you can be sure of, it's that nothing is more powerful than a young boy's wish. Except an Apache helicopter. An Apache helicopter has machine guns AND missiles. It is an unbelievably impressive complement of weaponry, an absolute death machine.



When John and Lori are on their date remembering when they first met, John's "version" is a parody of the Airplane! dance scene where Ted first meets Elaine.
