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.

  1. What Fatemah Say's

    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. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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 πŸ˜‰

  6. 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

  7. 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. πŸ™‚

  8. 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 πŸ˜€

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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.
