IT is crude, sexually explicit, crass, bad-taste, sexist, stupid, drug-fuelled and full of schoolboy/loo/appendage humour.

So if you can’t cope with any of those, or seeing Mark Wahlberg soaked in rejected sperm, you’d better not see Ted 2. Note to all: this is not a cutesy, school holidays kiddie movie.

But what else can we expect from the fast-paced mind of Seth MacFarlane, the man behind the crassly clever Family Guy franchise?

OK, so the plot. (Yes, there actually is one.) The newly married couple of Ted (the talking bear) and trash-talking Tami-Lynn (supermarket assistant) are having marriage issues.

They conclude that by having, well, adopting a baby, that will fix everything up. But when you are living life as a stuffed toy, things get tricky.

In order to qualify to be a parent in the state of Massachusetts, teddy bear Ted has to ‘prove’ he’s a person in a court of law. Along with his best friend Johnny (Mark Wahlberg) and newbie lawyer Samantha L Jackson played by Amanda Seyfried (and referred to as Gollum throughout the film) they set out to make it a mega legal issue.

Ted starts to liken their plight to the struggle of gay and lesbians to be ‘legally’ married.

Enter a highly publicised courtroom drama, an accidental visit to Comic-Con in New York, a discovery of a huge pot farm and so it goes.

The likes of Liam Neeson, Jay Leno, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and magnificent Morgan Freeman all have cameos, most of which I’m pretty sure they just do as a dare. Or as a favour to Seth MacFarlane.

At times, the political incorrectness and simply bad taste of it all has you closing your eyes and cringing in total embarrassment.

The most cringe worthy and irreverent scene comes when Ted and Johnny accidentally walk into an improv theatre just as the onstage talent ask the audience for improv suggestions.

Ted and Johnny yell out Robin Williams, 9/11, Charlie Hedbro and Bill Cosby. At this point, you could just about feel and hear the whole theatre squirming at the Aussie premiere.

And when Ted and Johnny attempt to break into Tom Brady’s house to ‘milk’ him for sperm? That’s really when my popcorn nearly exploded.

That said, you may wonder whether there is enough fuel in the Ted engine for a Ted 3. While we laughed, yes, really belly laughed, Ted may have done his cinematic dash after this one.

I mean, (spoiler alert here) after the high flying and credible civil rights attorney Morgan Freeman successfully defends Ted; the bear and his bride adopt a baby and Johnny ends up with the Gollum-looking lawyer, where do you go from here?

But then, with a menacing mind like MacFarlane’s behind the Ted franchise, I’m pretty sure he could still take him to further places unknown.
