    When is a movie fall-down funny even when some scenes fall flat on their fat ones? When it's Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. show more

    Yet it's very funny, a disappointment only to those who expect to see something bold and new. show more

    The movie cleverly spoofs the 24-hour TV news cycle, as well as sexism and racism in the workplace. Not every scene is equally funny, of course, but most of the comic antics generate laughs. show more

    I thought it was pretty funny, but not nearly as memorable as the first one.

    Just awful, we walked out. We were the only ones in the theater. Can\'t believe that Will Farrell was able to get so many other actors to be a part of the stupidy with him. Even my husband, who typically likes Will Farrell, was more than willing to walk out.
