Ted, the foul-mouthed, weed smoking, beer guzzling, talking teddy bear, is back in “Ted 2.” This time, Seth Macfarlane’s twisted character is married and wants to have a baby. But, he’s not completely “equipped.” Let’s just say the plush toy will need to rely on artificial insemination and one of the crucial scenes occurs when Ted and his human companion, John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), carry out a heist at a sperm bank.

Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello are taking it all off again in “Magic Mike XXL,” opening tomorrow. Who knew that male strippers could be so likeable?
