The best critic slams of ‘Ted 2’

ed is back, but he’s not better than ever.

The foul-mouthed talking teddy bear voiced by Seth MacFarlane returns in Ted 2, but it’s not a welcome comeback for most film critics. The comedy sequel currently has a low 45% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. We rounded up the best critic slams of the film:

USA TODAY’s own Brian Truitt:

“(Seth) MacFarlane and co-writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild have a gift for referential riffs, but the plot is the thinnest of narratives just to connect all the comedy bits.” (Read the full review here.)

The New York Times:

“Mr. MacFarlane can be funny, but Ted 2 is insultingly lazy hack work that is worth discussing primarily because of how he tries and fails to turn race, and specifically black men, into comedy fodder.”
