The trailer for Ted 2 promises to be more of the same from the “love him or hate him” Seth MacFarlane. I laughed through many of the jokes of the original Ted trailer, yet hated the actual movie itself. I found myself laughing numerous times at this trailer (who doesn’t like Marky Mark covered with a shelf full of semen?), so I hope the second time’s the charm with the movie. Of all movie genres, a comedy’s effectiveness seems to be mostly dependent upon your viewing experience. I’ve seen comedies in theaters that had me laughing heartily, only to watch them later at home and have my wife and I exchange “What the eff is this?” glances with each other.
Ted 2 will be released on June 26, 2015, with Seth MacFarlane directing and writing (with Alec Sulkin), starring Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, and Morgan Freeman (who must be in some kind of financial trouble), with Universal producing.
