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.
Ron Burgundy and the Channel 9 News team are back, but has the nine years they’ve been off the air made them outdated and irrelevant?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…
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…
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…
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.
Surreal avant garde Bañuelesque comedy has finally gone mainstream.
Not quite a Borat, but despite all its silliness and formula one of a funniest comedies of the year. I still have to hold my stomach from laughing.
'Here's a headline for you: "Moronic Yank Wankerman Gets a Bloody Good Hiding from News Reader from a Superior Country". For we are the BBC News Service.'
That line in itself was enough to make this relatively leaden and ultimately pointless sequel worth my while.
Disregard other reviews. Watch this movie. You will laugh out loud non stop. If you don't think this movie is funny, then you don't know funny, your are not funny at all.
It's like all the reviews saying this movie is so over the top it had too many jokes it was a disappointment is like going to the strip club and then saying that it had to many boobies inside and it was over the top and a disappointment. I just don't get how anybody could not be comically satisfied after watching this film.
No, kids! The comedies were not created to win academy awards, to be complicated or true works of art... These were made to laugh. Laugh, guys. Don't hate.
This is one of the worst movies ever made. I don't need to rewatch this to give it a sufficient rating.
The *only* movie I've ever walked out of.
I did laugh. More than I expected. But the flaws in the original movie come through in this one and are enhanced because so much of this is familiar territory that the original movie had already trod through.
Please...please stop ruining things
It pales in comparison to the brilliant masterpiece Anchorman, but there is still some enjoyment to be found on a few specific parts when it goes full retard.
Every boy I know is obsessed, and fair enough it's very boy-humor. It can produce a few laughs but otherwise it just seems a bit icky.
