Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"At its best, McKay and Ferrell's brand of homegrown American Dada can make you collapse laughing in your seat and cry uncle."
‑ Michael Sragow, Orange County Register
"A worthy followup to the first film"
‑ Jack Giroux, Film School Rejects
"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
"Worth a watch despite occasional laugh-free stretches ..."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"Wine connoisseurs would call this a new Burgundy with an old bouquet."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"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."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"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)
"The whole thing goes down like a second, giant tumbler of scotchy scotch scotch: familiar, comforting and, ultimately, numbing."
‑ Christy Lemire,
"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,
"I can't imagine fans will come away disappointed with the amount of laughs to be had here. Stay unclassy, Ron Burgundy."
‑ Brad Keefe, Columbus Alive
"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
