The newly unveiled trailer for Ted 2 proves that, big time, by making it excruciatingly clear that the film’s creative team had absolutely no good ideas left and no clue how to turn Ted into a solid franchise, but was determined to make another installment, no matter what.
Before you go and find some "deep" underlying meaning and point out that the trailer is full of great humor, reflecting MacFarlane's comedic genius - stop. There's a talking bear trying to prove he's human, so he can have a child with his real-life person wife by getting Mark Wahlberg to act as a sperm donor. Spoiler alert: That's the stupidest thing to happen to cinema since Fifty Shades of Grey. Oh, and Amanda Seyfried plays... a lawyer? Yeah, no.
The film drops June 26 and stars an, admittedly, good cast, including MacFarlane, Amanda Seyfried, Mila Kunis, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, David Hasselhoff, Tom Brady and more big names than I can believe agreed to be in a movie whose main star is a CGI bear, but hey! That’s the current state of Hollywood for you right thurr.
