Ted 2: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

We are so excited when we first heard that Ted will be back for a movie sequel. Well, it isn't surprising as Ted was a successful R-comedy in 2012. Finally, after months of waiting, we saw Ted 2 last night, and we are just so happy to see the "Thunder Buddies" back on the big screen. 

Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) is now married with her beloved Tami Lynn (Jessica Barth) but a year after their fruitful commitment it became shaky and the only way to save it is by adopting a child. However, their request was turned down and much bigger problem rises in the state declaring that Ted isn't an actual person but a property. With the help of his best friend John (Mark Wahlberg) they hire a lawyer (Amanda Seyfried) to defend Ted's rights and be treated as a normal person. However, this isn't that easy as they must face a great lawyer, (John Slattery) who hasn't lost a single case.  

Ted 2 is pretty much the same as the first one. But there are more drugs, a lot of F word in the process and of course Rated R humor to enjoy. However, aside from these things, the movie can't seem to offer something fresh and mostly relied with its recycled jokes but still funny enough to make the entire thing float. It was a big blow when they lost Mila Kunis to reprise her role, but Amanda Seyfried was up for that challenge to fill in that spot.  

The gag still centers with the Thunder Buddies with John and Ted stuck at their daily routine in having fun. They take on a new adventure that produces genuine laughs plus a lot of cameo appearances to surprise the viewers. Mark Wahlberg is clearly having fun but didn't really get the same attention he has on the first one. Seth MacFarlane, on the other hand, is still providing the same formula, but thankfully he managed to come up with a little more of hit comedy than miss in this sequel.  

Overall, Ted 2 is still a worthy sequel. However, we know that this could have been a better and funnier, but if you loved the first one; there is no reason for you to miss this part. We also wouldn't mind to seeing a third film for this franchise.
