Ted 2 – Extended Edition (Blu-ray + UV Copy) [2015]

Ted 2Ted 2 like its predecessor is a brill movie that will have you laughing out loud at the antics of Ted and John. If you’re looking for an intellectual movie that makes you think however you’ll be disappointed as Ted 2 is one of those comedy movies where you sit back, relax and try not to think too much.
John Bennett has apparently divorced from Lori Collins since the first movie and Teds relationship with Tami-Lynn after a year of marriage is at rock bottom. To save their relationship they decide to have a baby. The problem is Ted is a teddy bear with no reproductive organs. Ted decides to find a sperm donor so asks his friend Sam J. Jones however he turns him down. Next Ted and John decide to steal Tom Brady’s sperm by breaking into his house and… Well I’ll leave that part to your imagination but needless to say things don’t go as planned. While running away from Tom Brady, John tells Ted he would donate sperm which leads to a hilarious scene at the sperm donation clinic.Ted 2
It turns out though that Tami-Lynn’s drug filled past rendered her infertile so the couple try to adopt. During various checks for adoption it’s discovered that Ted legally considered property and not a person so cannot adopt. He also finds he can’t work so loses his job and his marriage to Tami-Lynn is annulled. Ted 2 continues with John and Ted going to a lawyer where they meet Samantha Leslie Jackson. After the three bond over some marijuana she takes their case for free. Despite her best efforts though the court decides against Ted but she takes the pair to Manhattan to see a leading civil rights lawyer to work on an appeal. He ultimately turns them down however leading to an argument between the trio. Ted angrily wanders off and finds himself at Comic Con unfortunately his stalker Donny has followed him there determined to find out what makes Ted alive so he can make a “Ted of his own”. Ted calls John for help and he and Samantha arrive at comic con and rescue their friend in the nick of time. During their escape in desperation Donny swings a giant model of star treks USS Enterprise at Ted. John sees it coming and pushes his friend out the way and is hit by the model. Donny is arrested and John is rushed to hospital where the civil rights lawyer who turned them away previously pays them a visit and takes their case due to a change of heart. Ted 2 ends “happily ever after” with Ted and Tami-Lynn getting remarried and adopting a child while John Bennett and Samantha start their own relationship. Ted 2
This movie will have you in stitches and gross you out at times just like Ted did but it lacks a little something. Now I think Ted 2 is a brill movie I wouldn’t write about it if I didn’t think it was brill stuff however there’s nothing in it that adds to the experience. When I watched Ted 2 it felt like the second episode of a TV series rather than a movie sequel. That doesn’t mean it’s bad however surely if the characters relationships are evolving then shouldn’t the rest of the movie evolve too?

    I am waiting for Ted 3 – I sincerely hope McFarlene considers it. Ted should run up for Governor or President. It will fit in nicely with the US presidentials in 2016 and should reveal the shallowness of modern political campaigning.
