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.

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."

It's older, fatter but as sublimely silly as ever, with ba-da-bing! timing and a finale of celebrity cameo craziness.

My favorite part of this movie was nothing.

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

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

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

Loved the first one. Didn't so much love this one. There were a few laugh out loud moments, but the rest of the movie's lameness erased those. What a… More
