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.

Format: DVD
Ron (Will Ferrell) gets terminated from his job and leaves his wife. He is offered a job from upstart GNN 24 hour news. He assembles his news team etc. etc. etc. The plot is not important. The film is fairly simple and it is more like a connection of skits and one liners than a real situation comedy. You could pretty much start watching the movie at any time and it wouldn't matter. The humor, while crude at times, was original and funny. Sure there were a few scenes I would have cut, the condom selection and racist dinner, but there were too many scenes which had me laughing out loud. Excellent support cast.

Some lines from the film:

"Bats: Chicken of the cave."
"He wanted to donate his organs before he died."
"Remember ten years from now..."
"He bottle fed and raised a shark..."

This is high caliber low brow humor. Crude and racial at times.

Parental Guide: 2 F-bombs. No nudity. Brief comical sex scene. Crude sexual talk.

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.

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.

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 so looking forward to this movie but what a disappointment it turned out to be.
This is one of those movies/sequels where you really have to think what was the point. Like so many other films it just did not meet the same standards set by the first film (which was no masterpiece either).
In 2 hours three are only two or three funny scenes. I must admit I did enjoy the end scene and the cameos.
Like a lot of other movies the trailers made it look really good but aside from the clips shown in the trailer there isn't really much else to laugh at in the film. I found a lot of the scenes in the movie to stupid to be funny.
The biggest problem this movie has is that it just isn't that funny.

The film is far too long (2 hours) for the material contained in it. Chopping at least 30mins off the film would improve it no end.The numerous fantasy sections simply dont add to the story or the enjoyment of the film and actually end up taking away from it. I enjoyed Anchorman 1 but was disappointed with the sequel. It had some good parts in it - but because it dragged on so much I ended up getting fed up with the film and not enjoying it. Dear Mr Film Editor - sometimes less is more !

I was not a major fan of the first Anchorman, although I do like many of Will Ferrets film, so watching number 2 was going to be a test. There were some great funny moments (hence I can manage 2 stars), the problem was these were very scarce, and with a film lasting 2 hours, there were many more moments of dire humour - just not funny moments. I reckon big fans of Anchorman 1 will enjoy this, but anybody else give it a wide berth.
