Everyone’s favourite potty-mouthed teddy bear is back on the big screen.

Ted 2 is the sequel to 2012’s record-breaking comedy from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, and it’s as rude, crude and hilarious as the first.

Three years on from the events of the first flick, swearing, smoking Ted (voiced by MacFarlane) is marrying his girlfriend, Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth) in a ceremony officiated by none other than Sam J Jones, the original Flash Gordon.

But when the couple decide to adopt a child, the government declares Ted property and he must go to court to prove he’s human.

With the help of his best friend – and thunder buddy – John (Mark Wahlberg) he embarks on the unusual legal battle alongside junior lawyer Sam (Amanda Seyfried).

I love Mila Kunis and thought she’d be noticeably missing from the film, by Seyfried was a great addition that more than made up for it – her character fits right in.

The jokes are outrageous and the humour has that typical MacFarlane stamp, it’s wildly hilarious, but only if it’s your sort of thing.

Ted 2 is the kind of movie that some people would find extremely offensive. It’s ludicrously lewd and as far from being politically correct as you could possibly get – but I absolutely loved it, and I wasn’t the only one.

The cinema audience, during a special advance screening, regularly burst into thunderous laughter.

Throughout the legal battle, Ted must also escape the clutches of an old foe who has a devious plan for him.

The film has lots of hilarious cameos, but the best one has to be from Liam Neeson, a customer that Ted serves at the supermarket where he works. It had everyone in stitches.

Morgan Freeman, Jay Leno and Tom Brady also make appearances and Patrick Stewart again provides the rib-tickling voice over for the opening and closing sequences.

Patrick Warburton also returns in the sequel as Guy, providing lots of comical moments, particularly during the Comic Con scenes.

The film is rude and outrageous, but it has it’s sweet moments too.

It’s ludicrously lewd and as far from being politically correct as you could possibly get – but I absolutely loved it, and I wasn’t the only one.

People are often curious if a sequel is as good as its predecessor, and in this case, I think it is – I laughed non-stop.

If you’re a Family Guy fan and you enjoyed the first Ted, you’ll love this one.

Stick around until after the credits for an extra chuckle.

Ted 2 is in cinemas on Friday, July 10. See it at Cineworld Boldon. Click here to book tickets.
