New Ted 2 Movie Delivered Great Laughs,Drama,Silly Story & More

27 June 2015 6:09 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Universal Pictures released their new comedy flick, "Ted 2," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out and thought it was extremely funny, delivering laughs at every turn. The plotline was amazingly silly though, but it's about a Teddy bear that came to life and smokes pot, so I guess it would be really hard to expect anything other than extreme silliness. Anyways, the movie stars: Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Mark Wahlberg, Dennis Haysbert, Amanda Seyfried, Mila Kunis, Seth MacFarlane and Jessica Barth. In the new flick, Ted (Seth MacFarlane) has gotten married to a hot blonde, named Tami-Lynn. Unfortunately, they run into major marital problems after a couple of months, and ultimately decide they need a baby to help repair the God forsaken marriage. However, things go from bad to really worse when the government decides that Ted is not actually a real person, and that he's actually deemed as property instead. »

Joe Morgenstern over at the Wall Street Journal, gave it an 80 grade, saying: " In a movie devoted mainly to making you laugh, it’s a plea for tolerance that takes your breath away." Mick Lasalle from the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 75 grade, saying: "Writer-director Seth MacFarlane is like some weird combination of a stupid, dirty-minded teenager and a brilliant comic master. His impulses are sophomoric, »

Movie Review: Ted 2

26 June 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane are back as John Bennett and his childhood stuffed bear Ted in the new film Ted 2. For those not familiar with the first film, Ted comes to life after a Christmas wish a younger John makes. Fast forward to the present, and both are grown up losers (of the lovable variety), smoking weed and drinking beer through life. A few years have passed in between the first movie and the sequel, and some things have changed. John is now divorced, and, as Ted 2 opens, Ted is marrying his one true love Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth).

The film’s conflict begins once the honeymoon is over. Ted and Tami-Lynn are fighting more than expected and after some advice from a fellow cashier, Ted and Tami-Lynn decide to have a baby. The only problem is, Ted is a living stuffed animal with no working parts. Through »

Ted 2 – The Review

25 June 2015 7:18 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Dane Marti

I realize that all of us—even toy bears— at one time or another experience terrible problems in our lives, ugly demons that affect us or someone we love; they often seem hideously overwhelming: Obviously, this definitely sucks elephantine donkey testicles. Still, I believe that we’ve all got the inner strength to face these bastards and happily rip ‘um to shreds, even if the sob happens to be an evil minion who works at a famous toy company. And if you’re a bear, if you lose your job and find yourself racing around, trying to achieve freedom: tough times lie ahead! And laughter as well.

The funny film Ted 2 is more than the sum of its parts. The evening that I viewed the film, I was dealing with a personal issue that made it slightly difficult to view and enjoy a comedy—Not laughing inside. »

Film Review: ‘Ted 2’ is a Funnier Film Than it Deserves to Be

25 June 2015 5:52 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – While it’s cruder and it can’t quite match the original “Ted,” “Ted 2” is still funnier than it has any right to be. It is unmistakably a Seth MacFarlane production, and there are a million reasons why this movie shouldn’t work, chief among them a plot that attempts to plop a foul mouthed talking teddy bear into a moralistic legal parable about civil rights. But I can’t deny I laughed throughout, almost despite myself.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

It’s less a movie than a collection of scenes strung back to back. After an elaborate and largely joyless Busby Berkeley inspired title sequence, the plot revolves around Ted and new wife Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth). When they try to adopt a baby, the government challenges Ted’s personhood and declares him property instead. So Ted and buddy Mark Wahlberg enlist a pot-smoking civil rights lawyer (Amanda Seyfried) to take his case, »

'Ted 2' Review: Rude, Crude and Still Very Funny

25 June 2015 4:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ted 2 doesn't hold a candle to the original film, but it entertains enough to warrant a trip to the theater. It could be that the initial premise has lost its luster and that the audience expects more from the story. The pacing is a bit slow and the laughs are mostly middling, but there are some genuine moments of knockdown hilarity. The comedy is what you expect from Seth McFarlane; juvenile, lewd, profane, with sexual antics galore. Anyone seeing this film knows what to expect, so they shouldn't be surprised or offended by anything this talking teddy bear says.

Ted 2 begins with the marriage of Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth). The not so innocent bride and plushy groom are madly in love. Alas all has not turned out well for best buddy John (Mark Wahlberg), who's recently divorced and taking up unhealthy porn fixations. »

Ted 2 Review: Painfully Funny and Unbearably Sluggish

25 June 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In my review of Ted, I noted how director/co-writer/star Seth MacFarlane had backed off the cartoonish style from his TV series Family Guy to provide something that was still foul-mouthed and abrasive, but in a traditional story. He played it safe as far as the narrative was concerned, and there was a sense that MacFarlane dealt with emotional beats like a kid eating his vegetables. However, the movie was still funny and showed that he had the maturity to skillfully deliver immature jokes. For the sequel, Ted 2, MacFarlane clearly has more freedom and confidence to make the film he wants to make, and sometimes that indulgence is refreshing and other times its an absolute chore as he goes out of his way to reach a single fantastic joke. At least 20 minutes could be cut from Ted 2, but MacFarlane thinks everything he’s doing is genius, and »

Mark Wahlberg, Patrick Stewart Praise Seth MacFarlane’s Originality at ‘Ted 2′ Premiere

25 June 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Universal Pictures gave creator-director-star Seth MacFarlane the greenlight to make a sequel to his surprise hit “Ted” after it grossed nearly $550 million at the worldwide box office in 2012 to become the highest-grossing original R-rated comedy of all time, he vowed to make the tale about a man (Mark Wahlberg) and his foul-mouthed teddy bear as smart, witty and fun as the original despite the enormous expectations.

“To be honest, there was some personal pressure, but my goal was to tell a completely new story and not rehash the same movie twice,” MacFarlane told Variety at the world premiere of “Ted 2″ held at New York’s Ziegfeld Theatre on Wednesday. “We wanted to do an entirely new story that explores an entirely new aspect of Ted’s life and evolve the character with funny jokes. Ted fighting for his civil rights is different than the smaller relationships story that »

'Ted 2' (2015) Movie Review

24 June 2015 12:57 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Seth MacFarlane is funny, no doubt, but he's quickly proven he's not a filmmaker, or, at least not a very good one. Whether you love Ted or can even stomach A Million Ways to Die in the West, you may remember laughing at either film, but you won't come away believing they were made by a director with any kind of substantial control over storytelling, editing or direction. A Million Ways to Die in the West is best left forgotten, both comically and narratively, and Ted was about as cliche as they come outside of the fact it centered on a talking, drug and sex-addicted teddy bear with a foul mouth. Admittedly, the concept is comical, and in the early going the first film had its share of laughs before it became redundant and tiresome. That said, when it comes to Ted 2 I will admit I laughed even more. »

Movie Review – Ted 2 (2015)

24 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ted 2, 2015.

Directed by Seth MacFarlane.

Starring Seth MacFarlane, Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi, Jessica Barth, Morgan Freeman and Liam Neeson.

Synopsis:

Newlywed couple Ted and Tami-Lynn want to have a baby, but in order to qualify to be a parent, Ted will have to prove he’s a person in a court of law.

Seth MacFarlane has an unusual gift for injecting heart into outlandishly vulgar and crass material. Over the years, his success through television and filmmaking have come from a very discernible brand of humor; no topic is off-limits and he will fearlessly deliver a heavy-handed message about society smack dab in the middle of a world that makes no sense and is inhabited by imaginative, colorful characters.

One such example is Ted (Seth MacFarlane), a toy teddy bear come to life after being wished so by his best friend John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), and in »

Review: 'Ted 2' suffers from comedy sequelitis and overreaches to lesser impact

24 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The first "Ted" was a pivotal moment for Seth MacFarlane. It was his first live-action project, and it was a chance to see if he could successfully launch a whole new empire, one that stood separate from "Family Guy." While I didn't love "Ted," I thought it was a solid step for MacFarlane as a filmmaker. His second live-action film, "A Million Ways To Die In The West"? Less so. I'm already ambivalent about MacFarlane, so adding the extra pressure of my belief that comedy sequels are almost uniformly unsuccessful, and I didn't have very high hopes for "Ted 2" at all. I can report that it is pretty much exactly what I thought a "Ted" sequel would be, complete with a larger canvass and diminishing returns on some of the laughs. Like most comedy sequels, it is too long and too indulgent in calling back to the original film. »

Film Review: ‘Ted 2′

24 June 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The magical teddy bear with the heart of gold and the mouth of potty is back in “Ted 2,” and so is writer-director-star Seth MacFarlane’s mischievous mojo, which went missing somewhere in last year’s mirthless comic Western “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” A sequel to MacFarlane’s surprise 2013 smash ($549 million worldwide), “Ted 2” is surely the last movie one would expect to find quoting from the anthropologist Dawn Prince-Hughes’ writings on the essence of human consciousness. But in its own, sweetly subversive way, this might be just the tolerance plea America needs right now — a movie that says, in effect, “Love thy plushie as thyself.” Fret not: Such high-mindedness has little diminished MacFarlane’s appetite for locker-room humor, gross-out sight gags and bounteous pop-culture in-jokes, which should make “Ted 2” the season’s go-to attraction for arrested-adolescent males of all ages, and continue Universal’s beary good summer box office. »

'Ted 2' Star Jessica Barth Talks Film's Boundary-Pushing Jokes & Tami-Lynn's Tight Wedding Dress!

23 June 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

One scene of "Ted 2" finds the foul-mouthed furball arguing with Mark Wahlberg over who should manually pleasure Tom Brady in his sleep, so they can use his uh ... stuff ... to inseminate the teddy's wife. Yep, the bawdy bear is back in the sequel to the 2012 hit, with a film that will shock, surprise and, hopefully, leave the audience in stitches. But, were any of the film's jokes cause for concern for the stars on set? Jessica Barth, who plays Ted's #1 girl Tami-Lynn, opened up about making the Seth MacFarlane flick with toofab's Brian Particelli -- addressing everything from pushing the lines of good taste to that Boston accent.  "I tend to trust Seth creatively with anything, so I know going into it,­ just like anybody knows going into a Seth MacFarlane film, you know it's going to be random humor, pushing the envelope," she says of the questionably offensive material. »

Seth MacFarlane and Mark Wahlberg are still pals in 3 new Ted 2 clips

23 June 2015 11:27 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Mark Wahlberg and his favourite foul-mouthed teddy are back in this month’s Ted 2.

This time around, Ted and Tami-Lynn have plans to expand their non-traditional family by having a baby. Somehow, the most complicated part of this human-teddy bear reunion is the fact that Ted needs to prove in a court of law that he is in fact a person. Amanda Seyfried stars as his lawyer, who is comically named Sam L. Jackson.

Seth MacFarlane is back as the voice of the titular Ted, along with Giovanni Ribisi, Morgan Freeman, and Jessica Barth. We’ve got some new clips from the movie that show that John and Ted’s thunder buddy relationship is as strong as ever.

Check out the new clips below, and catch Ted 2 in Cineplex theatres June 26th! »

'Ted 2' star Jessica Barth on the hardest part of romancing a bear

22 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Ted 2" offers a lot of the profane, rambunctious, sporadically gross humor that audiences loved in the CGI teddy bear's first cinematic outing, but it gives a lot more screentime to Jessica Barth, who plays Ted's human bride Tami-Lynn McCafferty. Barth's moxie is often the movie's most endearing quality, and thus it's a pleasure to see the actress explore Tami-Lynn's more emotional side in what's sure to be a blockbuster sequel. We caught up with Barth, a Philadelphia native, to discuss how she got the part of Tami-Lynn, how she learned that Boston accent, and why screaming at a teddy bear can be rewarding. In the first scene of the movie, you're fighting with Ted and screaming at him. What's it like getting that worked up over an imaginary character? Yeah, that can provide a challenge. Obviously there's nothing there. You know, I'm so in the moment, but it is really hard. »
