A couple of weekends ago Mike and I met up with our friends Chris and Kassie to check out Anchorman 2.
Director: Adam McKay
Runtime: 1 hour, 59 minutes
Plot Summary: (from IMdB) Having left San Diego for New York City, Ron Burgundy is living the high life with his wife Veronica Corningstone and son Walter Burgundy. However, when the boss decides to promote Veronica to full-time lead anchor and fire Ron, everything changes. Now heading back to San Diego, Ron is washed up and working part-time at Sea World. His shot at redemption though comes in the form of a man named Freddie Schapp, who’s an executive producer at the Global News Network, the world’s first 24 hour round the clock news channel. He hires Ron, who proceeds to reunite the news team of Champ, Brick, and Brian, and head back to New York City. While there Ron and his news team are given the graveyard shift and a challenge. Ron comes up with a radical new idea to transform the news and that puts him at the top of the game once again. But how long will Ron’s newfound fame last? And will Brick finally find true love?
Rating: On Demand
This movie was pretty darned funny. The whole cast is back (including Steve Carell & David Koechner) and as hilarious as ever. There are some borderline jokes (as one would expect from Will Ferrel/the Anchorman franchise) but it was definitely funny. Let me explain why I gave it an “On Demand” review instead of a “Theater” review. I loved the movie. It was hilarious and really entertaining. But you could watch it at home and get the same experience. Just my two cents. 🙂
- Theater: This means the movie is awesome. Go see this movie in the theater – well worth the $100 you’ll spend for a night out to see it on the big screen!
- On Demand: Since no one actually rents movies anymore, this category has changed to On Demand. This means it’s a great movie, but it is as good at home as it is in the theater and worth seeing a little sooner.
- TV: This means the movie is ok. Wait for it to show up on HBO and see it for free.
- Skip It: Movie sucks, don’t waste your time.
