Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues


anchorman2After getting kicked out of a prestigious news job in NYC, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) is offered to join the worldā€™s first 24-hour news channel, and gets the old gang back together. Getting this sequel off the ground took its sweet time, and once again it seems impossible to create a coherent story around these characters. The CNN satire could have been smarter, but thereā€™s a charming outrageousness to the whole project thatā€™s irresistible; very silly and very funny at times. Chock-full of amusing cameos, but Ferrell is a wonder to behold; no one can look as dim-witted straight through an entire film.

2013-U.S. 119 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Adam McKay. Screenplay: Adam McKay, Will Ferrell. Cast: Will Ferrell (Ron Burgundy), Steve Carell (Brick Tamland), Paul Rudd (Brian Fantana), David Koechner, Christina Applegate, Meagan Goodā€¦ Dylan Baker, Greg Kinnear, James Marsden, Kristen Wiig, Fred Willard, Harrison Ford.

Quote: “It doesn’t matter whose fault the break-up was, I was stubborn, you were like a mentally ill whore from the 1800s.” (Ferrell to Applegate)
