Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Ted 2 is the sequel to Seth McFarlane's mega-successful Ted -- and, like the first, it's a very vulgar comedy filled with drugs, sexual references, and extremely strong language (constant use of "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," and many others). There's no graphic nudity or sex, but characters talk about sex/make innuendoes constantly, with references to oral sex, Internet porn, and various fetishes. The three main characters smoke pot regularly, and there's background drinking, and references to cocaine and heavy drug use in some characters' past. There's some punching and bullying, and characters get thrown around. Several products and brands are shown and referenced, often with humorous overtones. All of that said, the movie has some interesting ideas about what it means to be a person, viewers who can handle the mature content will definitely have something to think about after seeing it.
Very strong, frequent sexual innuendo and sex talk. Graphic images of bears mating on TV. References to Internet porn, including various fetishes. A character is covered with "jizz" in a laboratory.

A character gets smacked by a large object and thrown across a room. Characters thrown out a window. Throwing apples at passing joggers. Bike accident. Punching, bullying.
Frequent, extremely strong language, with multiple uses of "f--k," "motherf----r," "s--t," "a--hole," "c--k," "ass," "whore," "t-ts," "penis," the "N" word, "nutsack," "jerk off," "piss," "fags," and "hell," plus "Jesus Christ" (as an exclamation).
Amid all the crude humor, the movie raises many interesting questions about what it means to be a person. Are we a person if we can recognize our emotions and show empathy? Do we need to be responsible in the world and give something back? Or do we simply show love? Sly commentary on America's history of marginalizing people for being different.
