Ted 2 New York Times 0

July 3, 2015

Liked Ted 2. If you want to laugh at a heavily pedantic review laden with ridiculous political correct criticism. Check this review out in the Times. The guy should get a job being an academic because he’s not in the real world. It’s a movie with a talking Teddy Bear!

Here’s one paragraph:
“And this isn’t a question of political correctness, the default complaint of those who just want their critics to shut up. If anything, American comedies need to take on race more, to test boundaries and audiences alike. First, though, they have to grasp the differences between appropriation and engagement, and between comedy that supports the racist status quo and comedy that shreds it to pieces. Just sliming us doesn’t cut it.”

It’s a movie about a foul-mouthed Teddy Bear!!!

“ome people laughed, some tittered nervously, some groaned. The uneasiness, I think, came from a deep, unsettled recognition that many of us share these days: No matter what we tell ourselves, we have not really figured out how to talk about race, much less joke about it. Mr. MacFarlane sure hasn’t.”

It’s a movie about a foul-mouthed Teddy Bear!!!

Sorry I laughed and suspended judgment. I mean, it wasn’t Selma. It’s a movie about a foul-mouthed Teddy Bear!!!
