Ted 2 Reviews

The "offensive" jokes that pop up every once in a while in 'Ted 2' aren't social satire, or good gags, or even particularly vicious - they're a gimmick, taunting, trollery.
November 10, 2015
Being awful is still no substitute for being funny - but Seth MacFarlane's talking teddy bear sequel does manage some laughs anyway.
August 14, 2015
Ted 2 strains to be the synthesis of... what made MacFarlane famous and his deeper creative temperament, and there are moments when that tonal zigging and zagging works. But they are ultimately warring impulses.
July 12, 2015
Ted 2 confirms that Seth MacFarlane really is nowhere near as funny as he thinks.
July 12, 2015
Ted 2 is not entirely devoid of comic merit. But it is way off the pace set by its predecessor.
July 10, 2015
The disappointment of Ted 2 isn't that the jokes are offensive ... but that they're lame, tired and peculiarly humourless ...

If you liked the first Ted film, which launched Seth MacFarlane's potty-mouthed teddy, you may still find the second offensive, not because of its daft man-child humour, but its ill-judged attempt at comic racism.
July 9, 2015
I can only say that whatever career notes MacFarlane has hit wrong recently, the Teds aren't among them.
July 7, 2015
It's hard to tell what, if anything, MacFarlane set out to achieve with Ted 2.
July 2, 2015
The movie is so indifferently plotted that it soon becomes a bore.
July 2, 2015
If you're ready to go with the hit-and-miss flow, you'll laugh your ass off.
July 1, 2015
Even when the film is being tart and lowdown, you question how deep MacFarlane's own vulgar roots really go.
June 28, 2015
If you liked the original Ted, Seth MacFarlane's 2012 surprise smash about a pot-smoking, potty-mouthed teddy bear, then you will probably like Ted 2. It is essentially the exact same movie, and more - and less.
June 26, 2015
In a way, it's pitiable more than anything.
June 26, 2015
For a movie that pretends to address issues of what it means to be human, "Ted 2" is soulless at its core, a pure product.
June 26, 2015
The film fumbles its lame narrative and, although some of MacFarlane's jokes are hilarious, they're just blips on the radar.
June 26, 2015
[Seth MacFarlane's] sense of humor generally bodes about as well for moviegoers as a dorsal fin does for swimmers.
June 25, 2015
Gross-out, juvenile, misogynistic, racist, homophobic, marijuana-philic, oh-no-they-didn't jokes, pretending to be comedy.
June 25, 2015
I laughed a lot, if infrequently. Is a ballplayer who whiffs four balls but knocks the fifth one 500 feet worth watching? I say yes.
June 25, 2015
Mostly though, "Ted 2" feels like far too many other sequels: born of box office expectations more than a bona fide reason to return to the characters we loved the first time around.
