Ted 2 is the sequel to the surprisingly decent Marky Mark/Seth MacFarlane movie from a few years back. But for some reason the trailers didn’t look very good, so I waited for this to be on the HBO. It’s… meh. Some funny parts, a definite downgrade on the original.
I think Amanda Seyfried was a downgrade from Mila Kunis. I had forgotten a major plot point from the first movie, which you wouldn’t think would matter, but it kinda did. Giovanni Ribisi had been showing up and I thought he was a new character until they started to reference things he’d done in the first movie, and I had to look it up. But there were quite a few jokes that landed, so it’s not a waste of time or anything. Ted was effectively a long, pretty good Family Guy episode. Ted 2 is a long, sub-par Family Guy episode.
