Release Date: December 20, 2013
Thoughts: Well, the second trailer for the sequel to 2004’s Anchorman has arrived and, like the first preview, I’m left cold. Though I know the first film has achieved a high position on the list of cult favorites over the years, I’ve never been a big fan of what’s essentially an overlong comedy routine from Will Ferrell and his gang. Now I think all of these men are funny individually but I’ve yet to be swayed that as a group they’re the laugh riot they think they are. I barely cracked a smile during this…and that doesn’t bode well for my enjoyment of the finished product. I realize I’m in the minority here and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is poised to be a huge holiday box-office hit, but man-child humor has to work extra hard to get a laugh out of me and so far I’m unimpressed.
