Last year I created a similar list so it was about time I did another for those upcoming films that…
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
It's Kind of a Big Deal
With the 70s behind him, San Diego's top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy, returns to take New York's first 24-hour news channel by storm.
The long awaited sequel delivers in outrageousness, memorable quotes, and salon quality hair.
Don't be the asshole that sees this and says, "Wow. That movie was really ridiculous".
You're better than that.
Super-sized R-rated version. There's a magnificent run featuring the Ghost Of Stonewall Jackson and Japanese compact cars. RELEASE YOUR SOUL TO ME, LETTERBOXD USER.
Struggling to think of a comedy sequel I've liked more. Airplane? Nope. Naked Gun? Warmer. Lazer Ghosts 2? Doesn't count. I must be missing some obvious contenders.
I'm in no way saying this second bizarre chapter is perfect. The mid-section is a little flabby and the targets are maybe too obvious. Two hours is way too long for a broad comedy too. But these issues are fairly minor for me. Everything else is so good. Most fans of the original film should lap this up. It somehow outdoes that film in levels of absurdity but remains very very funny.
This will get a ton of spins at home.
"Adam McKay’s movies tend to play better on the 10th viewing than the first. His humor is so surreal and unpredictable, it sometimes takes a couple of tries to fully appreciate its quirks and eccentricities. No wonder his aesthetic lends itself so well to a sequel; faithful fans of the first ANCHORMAN already understand the rules of THE LEGEND CONTINUES’ universe, and they’re all the more prepared to indulge McKay and star/co-writer Will Ferrell in their inspired flights of comedic fancy. A lot of sequels suffer from a debilitating sense of sameness, but in McKay’s world, familiarity breeds quotation rather than contempt. When ANCHORMAN 2 repeats gags or motifs from the original movie, it doesn’t feel like a rehash so much as a reunion with old friends."
The 70’s are over, but the moustache intact. The brazenness, well, it’s pretty much unaltered as well when Will Ferrell reprises his role as news anchor-turned-cult figure Ron Burgundy, a character that has lived on through internet memes during his nearly decade-long absence from the spotlight he so loves.
In Burgundy’s world, there’s no such thing as status quo though. After getting the boot from Harrison Ford himself, he jumps at the employment offer at a new 24-hour news channel, which takes him to New York. The dream team from the original is summoned anew, where oddball/weatherman Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) still provides the majority of the laughs. Even more so as he has now gained a soul mate in…
Simply hilarious. I wasn't sure how they could follow up the revolutionary original comedy that was Anchorman, but man they hit it on the nail with Anchorman 2. The sequel has just as many memorable quotes and I suspect like Anchorman, only gets funnier with repeated viewings. Long live Ron Burgundy.
It was alright
יותר דבילי מהראשון, פחות מצחיק מהראשון, אבל סרט כייפי בסך הכל
If you're a fan of the first one, this is the same movie but MORE and BIGGER.
Thankfully it didn't recycle the same "plot" from the first movie, which in the long run, kept the movie fresh while being familiar
"felt stale right out of the gate all the way to sign off"
I want Brick in my life
Kanye West cameo!
I SO want a Brick Tamland and Chani Lastnamé spin-off!!
Para alguns apenas besteirol, para outros piadas um pouco exageradas, para mim Ron Burgundy se tornou um dos grandes personagens da comédia no cinema, e "Tudo Por um Furo (Anchroman 2)" insere em meio as piadas e sequências hilárias, uma crítica ácida à forma que os noticiários foram se tornando "entretenimento" para ganhar mais audiência, deixando a "notícia de verdade" de lado.
Existe uma cena perto do desfecho que agregou participações especiais INACREDITÁVEIS e é simplesmente ÉPICA.
É tão "idiota" e divertido quanto o 1º filme, mas acabei me surpreendendo com o teor das piadas que tem críticas "inteligentes" e interessantes sobre o mundo do jornalismo. Mas não achem que por isso ele é sério. E as participações especiais são sensacionais!
