Week 28: Ted 2
Writer/Director: Seth McFarlane
Seen: Saturday 18th July
Venue: Eclipse Cinema, Bundoran
For the FIRST time ever for either of us we went to see a film and were the only people in the cinema. I like to think we can say that we got our own private screening of Ted 2.
Ted 2 follows on from the original Ted (2012) and in this instalment (there will inevitably be a Ted 3 which will be really stretching the laughs) we see Ted married to Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth) they are having a few marital difficulties and decide to adopt a child (the best way to fix a marriage - RIGHT?) however they run into difficulties when Ted is not considered a human being and therefore cannot adopt. Ted is outraged and hires Samantha (Amanda Seyfried) to be his lawyer to fight for his right to be considered a person in the eyes of the law.
Ted 2 is not going to blow you away but then you weren’t expecting to be. We went to see it with a touch of a hangover which definitely added to the giggle factor. The film is pretty funny definitely not as good as the first film but I have to take my hat off to Mark Wahlberg who delivers a couple of very funny deadpan one liners
There are various celebrity cameo’s - one with Liam Neeson which I struggled to understand, maybe I missed something there?
All in all Ted 2 is a decent enough comedy for a rainy Saturday afternoon :) ESPECIALLY if you are the only two in the cinema.
