“An earnest Londoner attempts to rekindle an old relationship while on holiday in New Zealand, but a faded old teddy bear from the past ultimately decides his fate.”

… in 1 word:

… in 10 words:
Teddy fails to deliver and is neither dramatic nor comedic.

… in 100 words:
The premise of Teddy sounds great. The implementation of the teddy as a visual representation of the relationship is promising. However it is delivered in such a way that nothing truly happens. There doesn’t feel like there is tension or conflict. The best part (SPOILER ALERT) is when a boiling kettle stops a kiss from happening and that was only funny because I like tea and it felt like a  British interruption. It peaks far too early and doesn’t present any more development or conflict afterwards. The ending is abrupt and fails to make you empathise. Watch if you’re bored.

Now go and watch it…
