Anchorman 2 The Legend Continues




My face was hurting by the end of this. I haven't laughed this much since This is the End. Director Adam McKay (also of the first) knows how to let his actors and actress really explore with their characters and endorses improv. The jokes and the timing of them feel natural and, to be honest, that's what keeps the movie going on it's two hour run time. The four main characters are bumbling idiots but that why we love them. Steve Carrell as Brick was the best part of the first one and gets more screen time here and he makes the most of it. He was the funniest part especially when he had Kristen Wiig on his side. Will Ferrell and the rest do their thing and it feels like the gang got back together after almost ten years. That was the actual span between the first and second movie. With it's two hour runtime, it does drag in a few parts but immediately picks up with its charm and wit. There is also a message in the film about the news and I was shocked. I really didn't think a film like this would have some commentary to it but it and it worked. The first half was funny but the second half was even funnier. If you enjoy the first one you will like this one. If you like stupid, ridiculous, and childish humor you will like this. For me personally I enjoyed the first one a lot and I really like this one. The humor maybe weird and stupid but both Anchorman's pull it off well and I can't lie and say I didn't have a good time and wasn't entertained. My second favorite comedy this year behind This is the End. 8/10
