Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues ★★

I loved the original, so I was really excited for this sequel but it lacks all the charm of the first one. I feel like they're trying too hard to make you laugh (especially Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig's characters), a lot of the humor just misses for me. The story reminded me a lot of Weird Al's UHF but the dialogue was lacking and unfunny. The first one had lines you could quote! (60% of the time, it works every time!) Of course, they recreated the big news team street fight. At first I thought they were just recycling the same gag but as that bit went on, it kept getting more and more ridiculous. I absolutely LOVED it! I wish the rest of the movie shared that same brilliance. Unfortunately, that scene came too little too late and doesn't redeem the entire movie (Despite being awesome as hell).
