This has got to be the worst comedy i have ever seen,i mean i know part 1 was dumb but at least i could watch it without wanting to fall asleep. This movie has me fighting to keep my eyes open,just a bunch of nonsense that makes no difference in the plot whatsoever.Painfully slow and boring with uneventful scenes and just alot of yelling & screaming.Stupid,and i mean stupid storyline. He goes blind then can see again,Steve Carell makes you want to hit him(moreso than usual)he is more annoying than Ferrel is.I just would not waste my time. Don't ruin the memory of part 1 by watching part 2. I didn't laugh but 1 time. Movie is best watched with a noose at your disposal for pleasure.

Saw these actors on Jon Stewart and they were a riot, I thought I have to see that movie. Missed it in the theatres, so I purchased it on Amazon, despite the mixed reviews. My advice, if you have to see it, rent it, don't buy it! I should have heeded the 3 star reviews and just rented this. There were only a few times where I actually laughed while watching this film. I was disappointed. I actually had a hard time staying focused on it - it just didn't do a good job of pulling me in.

So rent it first, and if it fits your fancy, then buy it. But it wasn't the right choice for me.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues picks up not too far from where we left off. Ron (Will Ferrell) and Veronica (Christina Applegate) are still together, only now they have a kid, and Veronica gets offered the promotion of a lifetime. Ron tells her that it’s her or the job and, knowing what we know about how headstrong Veronica was in the first film, we know which choice she will make. Chaos ensues as Ron tries (and fails) to kill himself and almost simultaneously is offered a ground-breaking job at a global news network. Now that we have the set-up, we can look for our familiar favorites. What follows should go without saying: spoiler alert!

What I Liked

– As a sequel, the film wasn’t half bad. Of course, it was never going to live up to the original, especially ten years later. But if you went into it with less expectations and more of a desire to just be entertained, then you got what you came for.

– Brick (Steve Carrell) was, yet again, given some of the best lines. One of his best this time around? “A black man follows me everywhere when it’s sunny.”

– Baxter is back as the wise and profound man’s best friend who ends up saving Ron from the shark he raised when the shark comes back to eat him.

What I Didn’t Like

– That god-awful song to the shark. Actually, that whole scene in general. It was too drawn out and also painfully unfunny.

– Champ’s (David Koechner)’s “Whammy!” catchphrase was so overdone at one point that it felt like from Family Guy when they repeat a joke ad nauseum until you have no choice but to laugh. The problem here is that “Whammy!” is not now, nor was it ever, funny.

– Ron’s fling with his new boss, the “black” Linda Jackson (Meagan Good).

There's a line between satire and stupid. Anchorman II crossed it. This movie happened because comedy stars with too much money smoked too much pot and made a movie for "fun"

"Anchorman 2," starring Will Farrell as Ron Burgundy, is an entertaining and hilarious spoof on the fare offered by 24-hour news channels. Set in the late 1970s, at about the same time as CNN's entered the new world of cable TV, the movie parodies a phenomenon that has long since devolved into no news 24 hours a day.

Ron Burgundy and his fellow newscasters are likable bumblers who have a sixth sense for what people want––a diversion from their boring lives. Burgundy and his cohorts provide these people this diversion in a way that is weird, funny, and entertaining.

If you’re looking to spend an evening immersed in some harmlessly funny diversion provided by great comedic talents, watch this movie. It’s enjoyable inaneness that makes for easy watching, with some not so subtle commentary on the way news is presented today.

I usually dislike silly tales that base their humor on absurd ideas such as two dumb people celebrating their marriage with a kiss after the husband covers his wife’s face with her vale and kisses her through the vale. But I liked this film. I am on a ship and the crew showed the film so I went to watch it. I thought it was funny. I even thought that most of the silly behaviors were comical in context. There were also some parts that were very sentimental such as Burgundy’s relation with his son. Most quirky but correct was the mockery that the film made of 24-hour news. I recommend the film.

Much of Will Ferrell's "comedy" is striking simply because you can't believe he would actually do the outrageous things he is willing to do. It's more being shocking than actually funny. I suffered with this stinkeroo until I just couldn't stand it any more. I don't care how the rest of the story goes;; it's too painful to finish.

...let alone be allowed to see the light of day.

Do yourself a favor: if you consider watching this piece of humorless dreck, consider the endless alternative ways to spend the 119 minutes of your life you will invest. Because no matter how young you are or how old you might become, there will come a time when you will want those two hours back. And when it comes, you will remember the time you sat in front of this wire-to-wire disaster of a movie with deep regret.

Few movie watchers are neutral on Will Ferrell. Usually I find his presence in a movie to yield enough self-deprecating and physically charged humor to result in a moderately entertaining movie experience. The original Anchorman movie effectively skewered the topics it took on (in a big wrapper of slapstick), and was funny enough to entice me to watch the sequel. Big mistake. This movie contains less than 10 minutes of legitimately humorous content; the rest is sheer pain as the unfunny bits linger too long and fall utterly flat.

It's the start of the 80s: Ron's old San Diego newsroom gang is recruited for the overnight shift at a newly launched 24/7 news channel, and hilarity fails to ensue. The few bright spots center on the growth of cable news and the popular iconography that results (car chases, obsession with celebrity crime, overdone graphics and utter lack of concern for facts).

The balance of this movie consists of back stories that that are variously sophomoric and crude. Anchorman 2 squandered an opportunity to spotlight many things in funny ways. Instead it bungled every effort as comic explorations of race, relationships, ratings, disability (yeah, really) repeatedly fail.
