Ted 2 (2015) Review

Ted 2 (2015) Review

If the main duty of a sequel is to provide the audience with more of what they enjoyed the first time round, then “Ted 2” succeeds admirably. Crammed with the sophomoric, scatological and scattergun humour that is Seth MacFarlane’s calling card, if you liked the first one, you’ll probably enjoy this one too…just maybe not ..

A Million Ways To Die In The West (2014) Cards on the table: I’m a fan of Seth MacFarlane. I love “Family Guy” and “American Dad!” (although I could take or leave “The Cleveland Show”) and I thought “Ted” was a brilliantly profane and laugh-out-loud twist on both the magical childhood wish and romantic comedy ..
