Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Worth a watch despite occasional laugh-free stretches ..."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"This is the kind of movie where most people know what they want and are pretty sure what they will get, that being "more of the same, please.""
‑ Andrew O'Hehir,
"It goes on a bit longer than it probably needs to, but the humor hits more than it misses, resulting in only a few sluggish places in a film that otherwise pays its audience's desire to revel in nonstop absurdity with just a dash of genuine social satire"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"Burgundy's earnest manly stupidity is a sure-fire laugh-getter and while he's off on his own a lot more this time around, his news team remains convincing both as his buddies and as different varieties of total idiots."
‑ Anthony Morris, The Vine
"A distressingly underwhelming sequel..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The whole thing goes down like a second, giant tumbler of scotchy scotch scotch: familiar, comforting and, ultimately, numbing."
‑ Christy Lemire,
"Too much of a good thing isn't always a good thing, especially if you don't think the good thing was so good in the first place."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Anchorman 2-2 extracts, objectively, 20 percent more of a viewer's lifespan than its fleeter ancestor did, and certainly it does not feel, subjectively, like 20 percent richer an experience."
‑ Chris Klimek, The Dissolve
"A hulking, Rob Ford-like movie; a lazy, drunken-stupor mess. The non-comedy includes Burgundy telling his ex she's 'like a mentally ill whore having PMS from the 1800s.' Slapdash, flat, bloated (119 min.) and gratingly full of its own white-power bulls**t"
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"I laughed more than a few times, but for every joke that hits, there's at least one that misses."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"Wine connoisseurs would call this a new Burgundy with an old bouquet."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"The jokes are more weird than funny, and Ferrell and Carell, never the most subtle of performers, labor to put them across by bellowing, howling, and screeching."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Brevity is a friend to McKay, but as experimentations go, reworking known elements to manufacture a new perspective on all the monkey business, and the "Super-Sized R-Rated Version" remains a mirthful and mischievous vision."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Fittingly, it all climaxes with a cacophonous, cameo-filled brawl between anchor teams from increasingly esoteric cable-TV territories."
‑ Jonathan Kiefer, SF Weekly
"The movie works the borderland that connects the satirical and the surreal; the humor is scattershot but sometimes laugh-out-loud hilarious."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
