So, that foul-mouthed teddy bear is back for more foul-mouthed hang-times with his best human friend, Mark Wahlberg. That’s right, Ted 2 is on.
My absolute favorite thing about Ted (one) was that everyone just accepted that Ted was a real, talking and moving teddy bear — no questions asked. But now that Ted’s settling down with his wife, Tami-Lynn, they’re itching to have a baby. However, only way they can do that is if Ted can prove he’s a real person in a court of law. So, yeah, Ted is now fighting for his civil rights. This is kind of heavy stuff for a movie that gave us the song Thunder Buddies. (Just Google it.)
In this sequel, Wahlberg is back as Ted’s BFF, John Bennett, and the cast now includes more famous folks like, Amanda Seyfried — who plays Ted’s lawyer — along with Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, John Slattery, Dennis Haysbert and Patrick Warburton. But, but, but where’s Mila Kunis? She’ll supposedly still return, but it doesn’t look like there’s a happy ending for her and John.
Here’s to hoping Ted at least gets his happy ending when the movie opens on June 26, 2015. If not, expect a lot of, “hashtag, grrrr, Mondays!”
