Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013)

Director: Adam McKay

Stars: Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Dylan Baker, Meagan Good, James Marsden, Greg Kinnear, Kristen Wiig, Fred Willard, Harrison Ford

Seven years after capturing the heart of co-anchor Veronica Corningstone, newsman Ron Burgundy is offered the chance of a lifetime: a spot on the world's first 24-hour global cable news network. Ron quickly assembles his team: Champ Kind, Brian Fantana and Brick Tamland. Challenged by his tough female boss, a network owner and a popular anchor, Ron and his pals must find their own way to the top of the ratings.

This movie had some funny parts and moments to it, but the movie was not that funny as a whole. They brought back the same cast with a few new characters and big names to add to the list. This is how it always is with a big movie. If the movie becomes very popular, they add nothing but bigger names to the cast for the sequel. They got Harrison Ford to play a role. I guess he had nothing better to do.

The jokes in the movie were hit or miss. The whole scene in the RV was pretty good. Most of the jokes were a bit sophomoric. The racial jokes were just too much. The movie was set in 1980, not 1950. They acted like they had never seen a black woman. The scene with she family was just a bit offensive, and not funny.

This is worth watching once, and that is about it. In some ways it was better than the first one, and in way it was worse. I'm kind of in the middle with this movie. Watch it, if you want. Enjoy.
