Film Review: Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues


I recently saw Anchorman 2 at the cinema, in fact it was Friday that I hit up that Vue cinema with my boyfriend to see it. I can honestly say I was rather excited, for one I haven’t had time to go to the cinema for quite a while, and secondly I love the first Anchorman film so was interested to see what the second had in store for me.

As always, I try not to talk too in depth simply because I think everyone should make up their own minds about whether they like a  film or not, and shouldn’t go see films knowing too much! That’s part of the reason I avoid reading reviews until after I’ve seen a film, as I prefer to make up my own mind and not be influenced by someone else’s opinion.

If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the trailer to wet your appetite:

Let's get straight into what you need to know, I enjoyed the film, it was funny and had plenty of laugh out loud moments. Was it better than the first? No, but does that really matter? Personally, a film like Anchorman 2 wouldn't be able to beat the original, simply because the original is somewhat of a cult comedy film that everyone I know seems to have watched and can quote from. Anchorman 2 does it's job, it's funny which is the most important thing, it equally has plenty of moments which I found me and my boyfriend to be quoting or laughing about since seeing the film, which to me is always a sign to a good film.

My favourite scene would have to be the 'fight scene' which had a few cameos which I wasn't expecting, in fact there was only one that I knew about before seeing the film so it was cool seeing some other funny faces. Plus, being British the BBC news channel was always going to be a brilliant thing to see portrayed. 

Worst part of the movie, would have to be the fact that I now need to find time to watch the original Anchorman film again as it's made me crave seeing it again! 

Have you seen the film? what were your thoughts?
