Ted 2 (2015) Movie Review


The Good: Similar to the previous Ted (2012) film, this film doesn't miss a beat with it's comedy. It doesn't go over the top (like they did in Hangover 2), and probably the funniest jokes were saved for the movie and not spoiled by trailers. The running jokes are a nice plus, and the film has a bunch of other surprises that I cannot even begin to mention without spoiling it. It's comedic strength will be the constant pop-culture and movie references. As for the plot, it manages to sneak in a pretty relevant social justice message that many will be and to relate with.

The Bad: While the multiple pop culture references can help the jokes, it can also hurt them. As with any joke, if you don't get the reference, you won't get the joke. For example, if you're not at least familiar with Lord of the Rings trilogy, then you're going to miss out on a funny running joke, while everyone else is laughing out loud. Quoting a friend of mine, this film is filled with "crass male humor". So if jokes about male reproductive appendages bother you, avoid this film. Lastly, it was a little disappointing that there wasn't another fight scene similar to the one between Ted and Johnny (played by: Mark Wahlberg) from the first film.

The Reason: If you loved Ted, you'll definitely enjoy Ted 2. Sequel keeps the same humor going along with the same level of randomness you could expect from Seth MacFarland. So if you are a Family Guy fan, this is right up your alley. Now should you go pay to see this? That really depends. You don't have to at all, because it's a comedy, and it's not like there's a ton of special effects or anything  that. But, if you're in the mood for some great laughs and want to get out of the house, this is more than worth your money to see.

The Rating: 8/10
