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.Written by

At times pretty fun, amusing, and silly- Ted 2 is not as good as its predecessor, but it is able to hold itself together just enough to make for a slightly better than average comedy sequel. Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane return in the lead roles of this buddy comedy, and their chemistry again is fantastic. The plot, from what you can follow of it, is all over the place, and it has a hard time figuring what it wants to do throughout the course of its runtime. However, that isn't to say the film isn't funny. It may not be a laugh riot, like the first film, but it has plenty of jokes to keep you satisfied, and just enough to keep you engaged and entertained throughout its nearly 2 hour long run. There are plenty of gags, some of which don't always land, or simply feel random or don't make a lot of sense. The acting is not bad, with some delightful cameos throughout and everyone truly giving it their all despite its juvenile nature. In the end, Ted 2 is by no means a perfect comedy, nor is it a great sequel. What Ted 2 is however, is a fun time that isn't ashamed of what it is, and is just entertaining and humorous enough to provide for a decent watch.
