Storyline: Ron Burgundy is back at it, gathering his entire crew for the grand opening of a hit News Television Channel. After being fired from his old job, this is the next best thing for him to show the world his Anchorman talents. Ron Burgundy is starting fresh at the Global News Network (GNN) as their "worst" anchor. He has received the worst time-slot out of all the anchors, and is at war to get higher ratings than his nemesis, Jack Lime. All of the characters that you loved from the first Anchorman appear in this film, and with even more hilarious punchlines.

What We Liked


Extremely funny. Every actor in this film connects in the perfect way to make you laugh for a week after watching it. The script is uncanny, and the plot is original. Every moment is unlike anything you have ever watched.

What We Disliked


The costumes were sometimes dry, and the jokes became slightly repetetive - especially after the first Anchorman.


Bottom Line

The script is uncanny, and the plot is original. Every moment is unlike anything you have ever watched (unless you watched the first Anchorman) and is quite possibly one of the funniest films to come out in the year of 2013.

Full Review

If you don’t like ridiculous scenes filled with jokes that absolutely cross the line, then this film is not for you.

Ladies and gentlemen, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is quite possibly one of the funniest films to come out in the year of 2013. If you don’t like ridiculous scenes filled with jokes that absolutely cross the line, then this film is not for you. If that sounded interesting to you, and you have not seen Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy then you should by all means watch that first.

The film follows a glorious news caster named Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), and his crew: Brick (Steve Carell), Champ (David Koechner), Brian (Paul Rudd). This is a news team from San Diego that re-unite to cast on a ground-breaking 24/7 news channel, Global News Network (GNN).  This news team is in a war for ratings, in an attempt to defeat Burgundy’s nemesis, Jack Lime. The film escalates to the point where Burgundy goes blind, is divorced, and lives in a lighthouse by himself. His crew has abandoned him, as he fights to regain his senses and get back on the air as a news anchor. For anyone who has seen Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy there is a certain sympathetic feeling towards Ron Burgundy throughout this film.

Most of the actors did an incredible job, Will Ferrell and his crew combined. However, Christina Applegate offered very little, and has offered very little throughout the series. She seems to let the jokes simply roll off her, without actually offering any comical value to the film. While she plays an important role, one can only imagine the difficulties of trying to be funny with a stiff, rigid partner. Do not let this small crack ruin the entire film for you, because it is a great comedy, with or without Christina Applegate.

The narrator, as usual, is magnificent. The voice, while melting you, also adds a very peculiar comical value. The entire film is a sarcastic wreck, but without the narration, the effect of the sarcasm would surely be missed. The ridiculous actions of Ron Burgundy without the reinforcement of narration would be dry.

This film is rated R for a reason, as the comical aspect of this film is rather inappropriate. It is not a family film, and it is definitely not for those feint of heart. This film features verbal abuse, with obscene jokes and crude language.
