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.

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.
