Not sure I can tell you what the plot was, it picks up with the team a few years later after they have gone their separate ways. Ron is recruited to the first 24 hour news channel after he splits from Christina Applegate who got the nighttime news anchor spot. The boys turn up at the new CNN parody with an overnight shift and go on a bender of misbehavior. Somewhere shortly after they knock the ratings out of the park I gave up the ghost and went to sleep so I can't tell you if it gets any better. The sad part is I love all the actors in this film and fully expected this to be an instant comedy classic that would live in my library forever. As it was, I sent it back unopened (hooray for borrowing a copy while it was in transit).
Apparently this is a maybe rent, definitely don't need to own title. For me at least.
It's a bit like the Hangover sequels in that sense. This movie doesn't really have a reason to exist, because it adds nothing building from the first movie. While it does technically continue the story, it's not really a continuation that needed to be told.
Some of the jokes got some laughs, which is why this movie isn't a total failure. But if you've watched the first film, you already know the type of weird wacky and awkward jokes that are in this one.
I guess if you are really hungry for more Ron Burgundy in any capacity, then maybe check this one out. Or if you haven't seen the first one, so certain this one follows many of the same beats. Otherwise, I'd give it a pass.
Most importantly though - the special features on this DVD are fantastic! There is a 2-part gag real that's very full and hilarious, there are several line-o-ramas as well. But even better than that, there's 2 DIFFERENT versions of the movie! Not just a longer/extended version or whatever, the Super Sized and Theatrical versions are actually different - they used the improv and line-o-ramas to actually change many scenes!
Very happy to see a movie that actually gives us those type of "extras" - everyone should do it. So disappointed any more especially when I buy a comedy and there's no gag real or anything with it. This movie isn't just a great movie, it really gives back to the customers and makes you feel like you seriously got your money's worth for the first time in a long while.
There are a few truly hilarious moments however. When Meagan Good's character takes Ron home to meet the family the rampant political incorrectness and the families reaction to it are almost enough to save the movie by itself. The slow-motion rollover has it's moments. There are other moments as well. Unfortunately they are interspersed with a lot of stuff I didn't find even groaningly funny and a plot line I didn't find the least bit interesting.
Basically some good stuff surrounded by mediocracy.

Silly, irreverent and sometimes awkward ( hilariously played by Kristin Wiggins and Steve Carrell) everything you want in Will Ferrell film.. Probably could use a bit of editing. Read morePublished 16 days ago by That is what she said
