Consensus: It's just as uneven and loosely structured as the first Anchorman -- and while Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues may not be quite as quotable, it's nearly as funny as its predecessor.

Ferrell and McKay were so determined to tell new Burgundy jokes that they didn't appear to care what they were about or whether they were any good.

At its best, McKay and Ferrell's brand of homegrown American Dada can make you collapse laughing in your seat and cry uncle.

The unscripted, off-the-cuff joshing between Ferrell and co-stars Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner this time fails to come up with enough good jokes, though they do hit the occasional satirical bull's eye.

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."

I can't imagine fans will come away disappointed with the amount of laughs to be had here. Stay unclassy, Ron Burgundy.

What made the original "Anchorman" special, was the unexpected absurdity of it: the time period, the focus on gender politics, the inane and yet… More

Perhaps suffering at the hands of its' own hype, this sequel can't help but feel bogged down. The jokes now feel too forced to be as funny as they… More

It's as funny and stupid as the original- and at least 10 times more random.

The news team is back and better than ever in a sequel that is damn near as good as the first one. An outrageously funny and endlessly enjoyable comedy that… More
