Ted 2 Review: Dialogue Compensates For Mediocre Storyline

When I first heard that Seth MacFarlane was making Ted 2 I didn’t hold out much hope for the foul-mouthed teddy bear and his best friend, Marky Mark, because there’s only so much you can write about a talking pothead teddy bear. This time around Ted is fighting for his right to marry, while searching for a sperm donor so he and his wife (Jessica Barth) can conceive a baby. The couple hires rookie attorney Samantha (Amanda Seyfried) who predictably begins to fall in love with John (Mark Wahlberg).

MacFarlane brings back the original’s antagonist, Donny (Giovanni Ribisi), in a subplot which involves him working with the teddy bear manufacturing company as they try to kidnap Ted in an attempt to replicate and mass produce more Teds.

Without giving away any huge twists from the incredibly complex storyline, here are the top 5 things you’ll want to see:

1. The reoccurring overly-masculine gay guys

2. Tom Brady sleeping alone

3. Liam Neeson

4. TOM BRADY SLEEPING ALONE

5. Speculation about why F. Scott Fitzgerald’s first name is “F”

While Ted 2  may not win the Academy Award for Best Story, MacFarlane makes up for it by providing a number of great cameos and plenty of hilarious R-rated dialogue. It’s worth checking out if you’re looking for some quality laughs with low expectations.

Overall I give MacFarlane and the cherry on top of his income 7 out of 10 overpriced bags of popcorn.
