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.

Every bit as funny as the original. Probably best to be wary of anyone who says otherwise, & possibly set kittens on them.

I found this pretty funny. I don't understand all the comments saying "the first one is amazing, the comedy in this one is rubbish" or something similar since the humour is pretty much the same

I suppose what's a little disappointing is it's too much like the first one. There are new scenes but they tell the same story underneath.

Overall: Funny, worth watching but definitely only worth renting.

Better than the reviews and PC hypocrites give it credit for. Yes some may be slightly offended by racial epiphets. But its just a bit of fun, and is not really that offensive. There has been far worse racial humour in other movies and comedy. Less zaney or wacky than the first, and the humour is basically relying on the same characters, some of which do better than others. will Ferrell keeps the movie afloat, and he co-wrote it.
Admittedly I only chuckled once, despite it having lots of gags, and is amusing, perhaps repeat viewiing is required, it could have been better I think if some of the gags were extended or taken even further perhaps. But there was restraint, and it feels a bit rushed. A better ending than the first, but still taken from the original. If you like comedy and you enjoyed the first, and like Will ferrel's humour and this socially inept but loveable character , then this is worth a go. For the price you cannot complain.

It was a good film. Certainly not a bad one. I heard this came out so I had to watch it after enjoying the first film and yeah I liked this a lot.

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
