Storyline

Months after John's divorce, Ted and Tami-Lynn's marriage seems to be on the same road. To patch things up, Ted and Tami-Lynn plan to have a child with John's help, but their failed efforts backfire disastrously. Namely, Ted is declared property by the government, and he loses all of his civil rights. Now, Ted must fight a seemingly hopeless legal battle with an inexperienced young lawyer to regain his rightful legal status. Unfortunately, between Ted's drunken idiocies and sinister forces interested in this situation to exploit him, Ted's quest has all the odds against him.

Trivia

Ted being carried into the air by a goose is similar to the scene in The Wizard of Oz (1939) where Dorothy gets lifted by the flying monkeys. Plus, Ted going to New York City to see Partick Meighan to win his case, only to be originally turned away, similarly happens in The Wizard of Oz (1939), where Dorothy and her friends go to the Emerald City to get Oz to grant their wishes, only to be originally rejected.

Goofs

The 2015 Comic Con sequence looks like the 2014 Comic Con. Displays for My Little Pony: Equestria Girls - Rainbow Rocks do not match the 2015 setting. Product placement of My Little Pony: Equestria Girls - Friendship Games would've been displayed by then; but that didn't exist when the movie was being filmed. See more »

Quotes

John: Judy Bloome?

John: Who's that?
Samantha Jackson: The author.
John: Well, why are you saying "fuck him"?
Samantha Jackson: [Sam is confused] What?
Ted: You just said Eff Scott Fitzgerald. I mean, what would Scott Fitzgerald do to you?
John: Yeah.

Waiting for Ted 3
11 July 2015 | by Prabhat_KSSee all my reviews

I really can't understand why many critics went harsh on this one.

The film is jutted with quality humour - social, political and personal. It lives up to the expectations and doesn't slack anywhere at all. It makes us laugh but also makes us uneasy at times not because of crassness but because it reveals the underbelly of our social setup.

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.

Go Seth go...
