Ted 2

A few good laughs, but overall the movie did not get close to the original.


The premise was smart- Ted wanted to be considered a person so that he can marry his girlfriend- because it grew naturally from the first movie and didn’t repeat the original’s story. Problem was, the typical court trial was stupid. Not for a second did I believe such a legal issue is handled like a murder case. Then to make it worse, the movie had a second trial!

A simpler and plausible plot would’ve been Ted and the gang preparing for a hearing in front of the state or federal officials in charge.


Mark Wahlberg needed more. The original movie succeeded because of his relatable plight and Ted was in a great supporting role; here, Ted had the relatable plight, but Mark had nothing special to do in the supporting role.
