Ted 2 (R)
Ted 2, like its predecessor, was directed and co-written by Seth MacFarlane, who also provides the voice of the bear known as Ted -- his diction has plenty of burly swagger, straight out of Southie. This time, Ted gets hitched to his lady love Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth), but there's trouble in paradise, and the two decide that having a child will fix their marriage.
Forget that Ted doesn't have the necessary physical attributes to get his wife pregnant; it turns out that Tami-Lynn can't conceive anyway. When the two try to adopt, the authorities decree that Ted isn't a human being, but "property." MacFarlane treats Ted's battle for personhood as a civil liberties issue: Talking bears should be able to marry and have families, too. They should, of course, but luckily MacFarlane doesn't stretch that slender metaphor too thin. The gags mostly revolve around pot smoking and rampant, joyful use of the F-word -- it flows from Ted's CGI'd lips as freely and breezily as a scull skimming along the Charles.
