Instead, Ted finds himself stripped of his legal personhood, leading him to do what any self-respecting toy bear would do: sue the government for his civil rights. With his best pal, man-child John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), and pot-smoking newbie lawyer Samantha L. Jackson (Amanda Seyfried) in tow, the result is about as un-pc as a movie can get.
