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.
Ron Burgundy and the Channel 9 News team are back, but has the nine years they’ve been off the air made them outdated and irrelevant? The answer is yes and no. The original Anchorman was a perfect storm of comedy filled with great characters and ridiculous gags. Yet, as we’ve seen with other comedies from Adam McKay and Will Ferrell, the mix of outlandish characters and improvised comedy does not always create a classic, and so it proves with this belated sequel.
Just like the original film the plot rarely matters as it thinly connects the random and bizarre sketches that litter the film. Following a breakdown and marital collapse, Burgundy is offered a chance to present the graveyard shift…
Talk about a hit and miss comedy....that is a great way to describe Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. If this movie was a baseball player they would be hitting .333....as for every "laugh" in the movie you get two just "stupid" moments.
The good stuff about the movie: (1) Nice to see the cast return for the sequel. (2) A good story as they get to spoof CNN and the current way news is covered. (3) There is a RV incident that is pretty funny...and is based on a real life Darwin Award winner story. (4) The best part of part 1 was the news teams fight....you get another version of that in this movie.....it is way bigger and filled…
In my experience, the first Anchorman has a strange and captivating charm that toils away in your mind until a solid appreciation for the film manifests. It took me five or so years to entirely appreciate the wittiness that Anchorman and its genial performers have to offer, eventually having my eyes opened when I kept witnessing hilarious quotes tossed about from the film. Disappointingly, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues has somehow lost all magnetism of the original and instead meanders its way through an insipid narrative and a vast array of lackluster characters in an attempt to revive the beloved persona of Ron Burgundy.
The Legend Continues commences with stability; Ron losing his current anchor gig and must reunite the…
"You made one mistake today. You messed with somebody from San Diego."
Director Adam McKay and Will Ferrell have teamed up once again for the sequel to their most successful film after nearly 10 years with very big shoes to fill. Despite having worked together in Step Brothers, The Other Guys, and Talladega Nights (which is my personal favorite), Anchorman was their most quoted and remembered film so expectations were high for this sequel. Despite not being as great as the first film, this sequel manages to entertain thanks to several hilarious scenes and many memorable characters that are just fun to be around. Some of the jokes are a bit familiar and repetitive, but Will Ferrell brings in the…
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.
Just hilarious. Classy soundtrack.
Entirely underrated and seemingly forgotten. Anchorman 2 is just as irreverently hilarious as the first, perhaps more so. It's stupid, ridiculous, and incoherent. In a good way.
Too much of the same weighs down an otherwise good story, and while there are plenty of funny jokes – like the first, its run time is almost unbearably long, especially as the middle act adds little.
Making a comedy is always a though job, let alone making a sequel to a comedy quite as brilliant as Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. The makers of the sequel are left with the though decision of either repeating the original's jokes at the cost of originality or making up completely new ones, at the cost of a fan base's delight. Anchorman 2:The Legend Continues tries both & for the most part succeeds.
Picking up about a decade after the events of the original Anchorman, The Legend Continues decides to connect its loosely related comedy sequences around the first ever 24-hour news channel, in which Burgundy must fight for audiences the insufferably egocentric Jack Lime & fight his own racist routes…
Comédia muito chata.
Nada de muito criativo, nada muito engraçado.
Personagem principal estranhão que pega todo mundo...
Steve Carrel podia ter morrido sem essa.
Even though there are several of my favourite actors in this film and Steve Carell just being more eccentric than ever it is just so stupid.... It only rarely has good moments that are genuinely funny...
Entertaining, energetic, retro. It's a solid movie in its own right, though admittedly some of its highlights may be dampened by its dedication to repeating a number of the jokes that made the original such a classic. They are updated, and still hold water, but occasionally the call-backs become tedious. Take the climactic newscaster street fight, for instance. The addition of new cameo-laden news teams is amusing, then slightly dull and even exhausting as it plays out, though fortunately by the end and the addition of the were-hyena (!) the pendulum's swung round back to hilarious. The Doby-the-shark subplot, however brief, feels totally superfluous and even tedious in its contribution to the ending fatigue viewers may experience.
