Seven years after capturing the heart of his co-anchor and wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), Burgundy (Will Ferrell) is offered the chance of lifetime: to be in on the world’s first 24-hour global cable news network, GNN, in New York City. The newsman quickly rounds up his classic news team – sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner), man on the street Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and weatherman Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) – and heads to The Big Apple. Upon arriving, he is quickly challenged by his strong female boss, Linda Jackson (Meagan Good), Australian multi-millionaire network owner Kench Allenby (Josh Lawson) and a chiseled popular lead anchor, Jack Lime (James Marsden). It’s up to Ron and the team to find their own way to the top of news – and the top of the ratings.

I am not going to trounce all over Anchorman 2, there is just enough gags and tomfoolery that gets some proper belly laughs to justify watching it. Thats about as recommendable as i am likely to be though.
We get reacquainted with the supporting characters who, in the first movie, seemed important at the beginning but ultimately had little to do with story as it progressed, and they get to go through the same motion here.
The black jokes and black dinner sequence were clichéd and insipid. Everyone has heard a white person or comedian imitate a black person thousands of times and seeing Will Ferrell do it is not much funnier. Brick's(Carell) role here becomes overbearing and it is like they have all suddenly become caricatures of their original characters. It has a good opening, vibrant half an hour but once the bloated, cameo-filled fight happens toward the end you will almost be nodding off.
At the end of it, it felt like a high school reunion with people you determine were more joyless than endearingly nerdy. The first movie was charming and satirical, its dour sequel is funny in places but too over zealous and re-hashed in its style. Nothing classy about this.

Anchorman was great but number two is errr....a number two!
Unfunny and desperate for laughs which were either cringe-making in the bad sense or just plain not funny.
If the whole film could've been as funny as the funny bits it would've been a top film but sadly, it was just a shambles of dire jokes.
Great shame.

After a long wait , I finally settled down and watched without doubt the worst will Ferrell film ever ,and honestly there have been some real howlers .This was a prime example of a film made with no script .
It just stumbles along at no real pace and with a few very poor gags that's it

I was unsure about watching the first Anchorman because it was typical obvious unsophisticated American humour. However I had a few recommendations and actually quite enjoyed it. I had a few chuckles - still not on a par with the best comedy that is out there. It was with this in mind that we decided to watch Anchorman 2. What a major disappointment! They tried to milk the few bits that were marginally funny from the first film, and did it badly. There were lots of random bits that made no sense at all. It has to rank as one of the worst films I have seen. I cannot imagine it would even make a child laugh. It was inane

I maybe alone but after the hype of the first movie, when I watched the original Anchorman. I didn't laugh once. Then one night I watched a re run on TV as I nearly always give a film a second chance, for some reason it all fell into place and I didn't stop laughing.
I approached Anchorman 2 as most do a sequel with trepidation, but I loved it, Extremely funny though not as quotable as the first as funny a film as I have seen in a long time.

Not as good as the first but still very funny. The gag reel is an absolute must!
