Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The trash-talking teddy bear who delighted audiences in 2012 still has plenty to say in this sequel, although writer/director Seth MacFarlane - who is also the voice of Ted - has padded the story a little heavily. Ted is fighting for his civil rights after being told he can't adopt a child, aided by old pal John (Mark Wahlberg) and Amanda Seyfried as a pot-smoking lawyer. She also replaces Mila Kunis as John's main squeeze, but as before, it's the bond between John and Ted that ties the movie together - and the cheeky banter between them that ensures plenty of laughs. Naturally, the CGI bear has all the best lines, but Wahlberg certainly isn't overshadowed, demonstrating some great comic timing (which is even more impressive given the technical challenges). Giovanni Ribisi pops up again as Ted's stalker in one of numerous narrative diversions, which also include a stop at the New York Comic Con. Even though it isn't as lean and mean as the first film, Ted 2 is still a bagful of naughty fun.
