Compared are the Theatrical Version and the Extended Version (both available on the UK Blu-ray by Universal)
- 20 differences, among them 2 with alternate footage
- Length difference: 616.8 sec (= 10:17 min)
After Seth MacFarlane's Ted became the most successful "originally" R-Rated comedy ever (more than $500 million at the box office), he dedicated hisself to a project he was really keen on: A Million Ways to Die in the West. In 2015, he finally made the sequel Ted 2. With a box office result of $215 million, he fell short of expectations (according to a humorous statement in the commentary, a particular dinosaur movie played a part in it) but the result was satisfying anyway. Especially for fans, there are a lot of laughs in it (despite some rather serious scenes), it just feels like an extra-long episode of Family Guy.
Similar to the Griffins and Seths previous two big screen movies, a longer "Extended Version" or "Unrated Version" with approx. 10 more minutes has been released on Blu-ray and DVD. As often, the new footage was not removed from the Theatrical Version for censorship reasons. Although it is obvious that most of that footage was cut for pace reasons, fans will enjoy it. Especially the additional guest appearances by Jimmy Fallon, Bill Maher and David Hasselhoff are an upside which, at the end of the day, make the Extended Version the better one.

Ted: "There he is!"

Tami-Lynn screams some more.
At the office, Frank says: "You had sexual intercourse on a pile of raw hamburger meat that we're supposed to sell to the public for their Fourth of July barbecues."
Ted: "I fucked her with a pack of Freedent. Then I put it back on the shelf and a senior citizen bought it."
Frank: "That took guts. We need guts. I'm naming the store after you."
