Ted 2

Seth MacFarlane returns as co-writer, director and voice star of this sequel to the foul-mouthed comedy about a man-child (Mark Wahlberg) and his even more immature living teddy bear, Ted. Amanda Seyfried and Giovanni Ribisi co-star.

Here, cuddly Ted marries Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth), his girlfriend from the first film, and the couple seek to adopt a child. However, to get custody, Ted has to prove to a court of law that he is a person (problem is, he's a toy bear remember?). Securing the services of a junior, pot-smoking lawyer (Seyfried), Ted's battle takes on higher stakes as the implications of not being a person impact more than just the proposed adoption...

In 2012 Seth MacFarlane gave us Ted, the tale of a pot smoking, foul-mouthed, womanising teddy bear still best friends (or thunderbuddies) with Johnny (Mark Wahlberg) who brought him to life with a childhood wish. It was very funny. Genuinely hysterical. In 2014 Seth MacFarlane gave us A Million Ways To Die In The West, the tale of … oh who cares, it was a terrible western and an even worse comedy. Welcome to Ted 2, effectively the sequel to both of those films.

Childish With an X Rated Charm

Ted 2 maintains its childish antics with potty-mouthed hilarity, potty one liners and, well, Pot. Although not quite as funny as the first palaver. Ted 2 pulls jokes like bong hits. A cross between an adult version of dumb & dumber meets The Muppets if Lloyd, Harry and Jim Henson met at a pot growing conference sponsored by the American Federation of...

Ted Doesn't Care About Your Moral Lines

3 years later, Ted the living teddy bear returns for another adventure involving a cavalcade of jokes that humans find themselves debating before they say them. Mark Wahlberg returns as hapless John Bennett, the human who wished to life his teddy bear, Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane). The two thunder buddies find themselves dealing with polarised...

Immature, stupid & crap-tasticly funny.

Ted 2 So the magical bear returns, same lines as the first. Imagine ‘Pineapple Express’, ‘I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry’ with excerpts of ‘Paul’ and main guy is a talking bear. There you have it. If you don’t think you’re gonna like it, then don’t go! Ha ha, that simple. It’s immature and childish, so most guys will love it, it’s stupidly crap-tastic...

The chemistry between Wahlberg and MacFarlane is infectiously puerile.

MacFarlane’s preference for quantity over quality results in a lot of dead air, but the gags that land are howlers...

Cue semen slapstick, some slightly uncomfortable equal-rights comparisons – and cinema’s first Charlie Hebdo gag.

Where Ted managed a respectable ratio of clever (or at least transcendently dumb) gags to lazy/offensive ones, Ted 2 is a repetitive, self-congratulatory slog...

Ted's Boston-accented zingers are expertly delivered by the director/star, whose voice talent is undeniable, and Wahlberg again demonstrates that he's skilled at comedy.

The sequel still manages to walk the tightrope between clever and crass. For a while, at least.
