Ted 2 Movie Review:

Can anyone tell me why is Ted so popular? Is it because he smokes, takes drugs, spout vulgarities, racist or because he’s a bear? OK, I didn’t catch the first movie because I’m not into teddy. But when everyone went crazy over the first film, and his toy went viral, I was like, hmmm, perhaps I’m wrong and I should catch Ted 2. This film made me understand why I didn’t watch the first one. Ted-2-MovieWhile I had a few reviews to work on, Ted 2 was pushed to the last one, simply because I don’t know what to write. Yes, there were plenty of jokes, some are gross, some are offensive, the rest are like… seriously!? I really respect Mark Wahlberg for filming the whole movie with a toy though, it takes loads of imagination to do so.

amanda_seyfried_ted_2Samantha L. Jackson (Amanda Seyfried) took over Mila Kunis as John Bennett’s (Mark Wahlberg) new love interest, and it felt pheodophilic! She could totally pass off as his daughter (think Transformers!). The combination felt forced. She did her best though, playing a new lawyer who smokes pot (marijuana), I could see her having fun with Ted and John. Her ballad “Mean Ol’ Moon” was perhaps the most meaningful moment, if not for the fact that it took place in a marijuana farm -.-. I don’t care whether it’s meant to be a joke or not, but a lawyer taking marijuana which supposedly damage your brain and cause depression is seriously a bad idea and bad influence. ted-2The climatic scene in the midst of the Comic Conference (I was hoping to spot some Power Rangers or perhaps Jason David Frank in it) was a tad better (pun intended) than the rest. Harmless stalker Donny (Giovanni Ribisi) collude with Hasbro, in hope to kidnap, dissect and replicate Ted made me think of the silly “Home Alone” series burglars whom never manage to accomplish anything.

ted-2 tomOK, maybe New England Patriots Quarter Back Tom Brady’s appearance did help a bit. Yes, he did show his pecs. Or perhaps it was Liam Neeson’s surprising cameo made the ticket a little worthwhile. I don’t really get his obsession with Trix cereal though. It will be funnier if he had did his classic lines from Taken. Old jokes, no joke. I guess Mark Wahlbery and Seth MacFarlane could do better than this.

Do You Know?

Seth MacFarlaneSimilar to the first film, Seth MacFarlane is the writer, director and voice star of Ted 2.

ted Mila KunisMila Kunis could not reprise her role of Lori because she was pregnant with her baby with partner Ashton Kutcher. ted-2-courtDuring the courtroom scene, Ted likens his struggle for rights with the Gay marriage movement. Coincidently, the film was released on June 26th 2015, when the U.S Supreme Court historically ruled in favor of Gay Marriage in all 50 states.

Mark+Wahlberg+Amanda+Seyfried+Film+Ted+2+NO+zwGwrG-GlY7xDuring the campfire scene when the trio is stranded at the pot farm, the song that Sam Jackson sings really is performed by Amanda Seyfried herself. “Mean Ol’ Moon” was written especially for the film and the lyrics were penned by Seth MacFarlane within a week. Ted-2-SpermJohn spills vials of sperm on himself as the shelf collapses. This scene is similar to Family Guy: Sibling Rivalry (2006), in which the exact same thing happens to Peter Griffin, who is also voiced by Seth MacFarlane.

    I haven’t watched the first part of the movie so I can’t compare the two. would try watching it in the winter holidays.

  2. phyliciamarie says:

    Ted 1 was really good, so this one was sooo disppointing. It felt like they made a sequel just to make a sequel for the fans, not really because they had a solid story.

  3. Roxi Santiago says:

    The first one was hilarious! I didn’t get to finish Ted 2 because I got bored a few minutes into it.

  4. Sunshine Kelly says:

    Yeah! I watched the Ted 1 and definite win’t missed the Ted 2. Is just a relaxing and fun movie to watch and i love teddy bears so it my kind of movie. By the way, I just watched Everest last night and it was really awesome.

  5. Ling says:

    Have written off the movie based on all the less than positive reviews I have read about it. Though. The bear is still really cute!

  6. Pooja Kawatra Gupta says:

    I find the first version of the movie quite light without using my brains on it though havent seen the second yet. Your review seems lovely.

  7. sinyees says:

    I haven’t watch Ted 2 yet. Going to stream it since Malaysia version must censor a lot. Thanks for the review. Shall not put too much expectation on it.

  8. PrayerFull Mum says:

    I watched the first Ted and I don’t fancy it either. So I’ll think I will give this a miss and even much so after reading your review. Thanks for the affirmation 😉

  9. Franc Ramon says:

    It has a select adult market that is amused by it. I think it is a unique concept too.

  10. Fernando Ceballos Lachica says:

    i’ve seen this movie and really Mark had done an amazing portrayal as comical person. Really, entertaining for family.

  11. violetaloredana says:

    I didn’t see the first movie either, but my husband wants to see this second one. I still have doubts 😀

  12. 3xhcch says:

    I would have to agree that Amanda Seyfried was totally wrong in the role of the lawyer. Her pairing with Wahlberg was awkward. I was disappointed that Mila Kunis did not return in the sequel. – Fred

  13. Anne V says:

    I haven’t watched the first film yet, but looking forward to seeing that one and the sequel. The teddy’s quite cute, plus I’m a huge fan of Mark, so. 🙂

  14. Jason Panuelos says:

    I think the movie can be a little gross which is why I’ve avoided it until now. It seems super duper funny though so I might try it 😀

  15. Cheryl F. says:

    I haven’t seen this movie nor the first one. Got no chance but looking forward to able to. Looks like a good movie though.

  16. Karla | karlaroundtheworld says:

    I didn’t get to watch the first one either.Seemed like a nice concept but lets see. Perhaps I should give it a try when I am less busy so I can judge it too 🙂

  17. tumandok says:

    This movie, the teddy bear is in animated. However, the setting is for the adults. Anysway this movie is worth seeing. If I got one of this movie, I would love seeing it. Gil Camporazo

  18. jamdaquio says:

    hahaahah! your review is funny. Me too, I did not watch Ted 1, but okay now that I read your sentiments, I’ll download it.

  19. Elizabeth O. says:

    The first one was exceptional, although I’ve never had the chance to see this second movie. Thanks for the review! Looking forward to watching this.

  20. Thomas Watson says:

    What’s the message the movie is passing, to consider falling in love with a doll?

Tell me what you think!
