Seth MacFarlane returns as writer, director and voice star of Ted 2, the follow-up to the blockbuster that launched the career of the world's most outrageous bear. Joined once again by Mark Wahlberg (Transformers: Age of Extinction, The Other Guys) as John Bennett, the thunder buddies for life are entering into uncharted territory.
It's time to legalize Ted.
In the years since we last saw John and Ted, they're both still living the dream in Boston. Although John is now a bachelor, Ted has settled down with Tami-Lynn, the trashy woman of his dreams. As marital problems begin to affect the newlyweds, Ted and Tami-Lynn decide to have a baby in order to save their marriage. Their hopes are crushed when the Commonwealth of Massachusetts declares Ted to be not a person, but property, and therefore ineligible to adopt. He is fired from his job at the grocery store and summarily informed that his marriage has been annulled.
Angry and dejected, Ted channels his frustration and asks his best pal to help him sue the state and win him the rights that he deserves. They enlist a young, medical-marijuana aficionado named Samantha L. Jackson (Amanda Seyfried of Mamma Mia!, Les Misérables) as their lawyer and head to court. But when Ted loses his case, the three must venture on a road trip to New York in a last-ditch effort to persuade legendary civil rights attorney Patrick Meighan (Oscar-winner Morgan Freeman of The Shawshank Redemption, Wanted) to take on their appeal. If they win, they will prove that Ted is not just a beer-swilling, pot-infused stuffed teddy bear, but actually a person who deserves the same freedoms as any other beer-swilling, pot-infused American.
