Anchorman 2 (2013)

Directed by Adam McKay
Written By Will Ferrell, Adam McKay
Starring Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell

I love lamp! And I love this movie. Everything about anchorman I love. It not that it’s a hilarious movie pocking fun at media culture and pandering news channels… I just really like how stupid they all are. Every character in this film is terrible. Its like slapstick comedy during an earthquake. There is really no “anchor” to help keep perspective. This is the genius part of the film.

This one has an all-star cast and even drake and Kanye make a special camio. All the old characters are still a big part of the film and the story just keeps going. Everything changed in new media and the change revolved around Ron Burgundy and that exactly how it should be.

The greatest part of this film is that it doesn’t take away from the first film. A lot of sequels and trilogies tend to change how the first film played out. But not anchorman 2! This film has all the class and dignity of the first film but all the swagger of a sequel. They did a good job of making the film stand on its own even though it pays tribute to the original.

Top 5. This film won’t but should make history.
