One of my all time favorites.
Best movie ever!
There are moments in this movie where the great movie it could've been peek out... They're fleeting, here, but they're worth savoring, and they happen often enough to make it worth your while.
By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.
Some really good gags and ideas in the first 30 minutes, but the following Story didn't work well to me. It could have been a furious comedy
It had some big laughs in the beginning when it dealt with Ted's marriage and problems getting his wife pregnant. Then it had this weird mid-twist of him being "property" where he isn't a person and the marriage wasn't legal and he had to go to court which I thought was boring and their lawyer was inexperienced and not a very interesting character. The movie also repeated some of the laughs in the second hour of so. I find this summer to be uneven with Terminator: Genysis, Insidious: Chapter 3, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Mad Max: Fury Road and now Ted 2 being big ideas that run out after awhile. I also didn't like Spy which I thought was mostly boring with a dumb plot twist involving Jason Statham's character. Hopefully I will enjoy Inside Out and Jurassic World. I liked San Andreas, but that was just a fun summer movie. That seemed made specifically for a summer release more than most action/special effects movies. Nothing great in that one.
Ted 2 was not as well received from critics and fans compared to Ted. This film is still quite funny with Seth MacFarlane's typical sense of humor using clever witty one-liners or cutaways with his typical musical dance screens which is often used. Although Ted 2 may not be as good as the original, since this film is a little more depressing and light hearted, the plot is still well and the overall film is very much enjoyable and entertaining. The cast along with the supporting character all work well, as this film does not feel as long as its runtime (a little under 1 hour 50 minutes excluding end credits). Overall Ted 2 is still quite funny with many clever jokes and the chemistry between Ted and Mark Wahlberg's character is what makes the film good.
Loved Ted 1, expected Ted 2 to be OK but am sad to report its plain bad. Ted 1 did not have a strong plot, but it was consistently outrageous and laugh-out-loud funny. The gags in Ted 2 are not even loosely connected. The appearance of big name celebrities such as Jay Leno, Liam Neson, Morgan Freeman etc is mostly distracting. Not being American, I guess some references are lost on me. I found the Liam Neson cameo in Life's Too Short to be hilarious. Here, it's funny but forgettable. I'm glad to see Wallenberg and Kunis separated, but don't care for his new romance. The Giovanni Ribisi subplot was the low point of Ted 1. Why his character reappears in Ted 2 is beyond me (and how did Ribisi track the trio from Boston to NY?). The finale at comic con sucks. The nerd bashing by Patrick Warburton (who is otherwise good) is not entertaining. There are still a number of laughs. My favourite scenes were at the sperm bank and Ted driving. Memorable, funny, deeply uncomfortable. Watch them on YouTube, but skip the full length feature.
