Critical response

 On Rotten Tomatoes the film has an approval rating of 46% based on 189 reviews with an average rating of 5.3/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Ted 2 reunites Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane for another round of sophomoric, scatological humor -- and just as before, your enjoyment will depend on your tolerance for all of the above." On Metacritic, the film has a score of 48 out of 100 based on 38 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews". Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "B+" on an A+ to F scale.

 James Berardinelli of ReelViews gave the film two out of four stars, saying "It would be disingenuous for me to claim that Ted 2 isn't funny. Although I was often bored by the plodding direction of the story, I laughed from time-to-time." Chris Nashawaty of Entertainment Weekly gave the film a C+, saying "You realize what it must be like to be trapped in detention with a bunch of 15-year-old boys who think there's nothing more hilarious than repeating the same jokes about porn, pot, and pulling your pud over and over again. It's funny, until it's not." Bill Goodykoontz of The Arizona Republic gave the film two out of five stars, saying "The film, like most of MacFarlane's work, is a mix of occasional laugh-out-loud moments - there are some here - and cringe-worthy misfires that play a lot more tone-deaf than he seems to intend."

 今回は、Tedが養子と市民権を得るために、アメリカを横断しながら、奮闘するroad movieになってる。


 もしかしたら、敢えてそうしてるのかもしれない。Morgan Freemanが出てくると、だいたいlast sceneを強引にまとめて締めくくるってアメリカの定番jokeなので、それをparodyにしてるのかなー。


 一作目であれだけTedが、John (Mark Wahlberg)とLori (Mila Kunis)の仲を取り持つために奮闘したのに、今回、一切出てきません。すでにJohnとは、離婚しているってことが、冒頭でちょっと触れられて終わり。


 Meg (Mila Kunis)は、こっちの映画でもぞんざいに扱われててワロタ(笑)。
