(4 votes)

Directed by: Seth MacFarlane

Starring: Joel McHale, Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis

Genres: Comedy

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?

Suggested correction: A week has passed since the breakup and we don't see anything that happened during that time. There's nothing in the film to indicate Ted didn't try to reconcile with John (such as through text) or at least find out where he's staying. The only reason Ted decided to go to the hotel is to tell John about Lori leaving with her boss because he knows that would be a big deal to him. And Ted went to Lori's to try to get her to take John back (probably because of things John said to Ted during the week we didn't see). Once Ted is at Lori's and sees her leaving with her boss, he goes to the hotel to tell John he "just saw her leave" with him.

Plot hole: When Ted escapes Donny and the child in their own home, he gets recaptured and thrown into their car to be taken somewhere else. Where would they have taken Ted, if they were already at their house? It was never explained.

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.

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.

Trivia: 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.
