Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

Rated PG-13 / 1 hr 59 min / Comedy

What is it about?

There was a man who was made to have salon quality hair, and read the news.  He assembled a news team that was unlike any other.  Champ Kind knows how to say "Whammy!" really loud.  Brian Fontana is the investigative journalist with the exotic cologne collection that may frighten small children.  Brick Tamland loves lamp and is not ashamed to say it.  Together they follow this man to the ends of the earth in search of the best news stories and adorable animal tricks.  The man, the myth, the legend is Ron Burgundy, and this is the continuation of his story.

You will like it if...

What the crap are you reading this for?  Go see it!  OK OK so Will Ferrell's humor is not for everyone, but if you are the least bit interested then you will probably enjoy it.  This sequel isn't as good as the original, but not many comedies are.  There is more physical humor which makes it less quotable than the first, but there are still some nice gems spread throughout.  From the reviews I have read, that seems to be a major complaint which doesn't make any sense to me.  You can quote the original almost from start to finish.  It would be a massive accomplishment to be able to repeat that.  This is still one of Ferrell's better movies.  Just remember that no matter how dark things may seem, in the end Baxter always saves the day.
