Benignly absurd and entertaining.
“I’m not trying to be funny, but are you sure he’s not a midget with a learning disability?” Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell)
When I realized Sacha Baron Cohen was playing a BBC reporter in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, I realized Will Ferrell and director Adam McKay were imitating Cohen’s Borat from 7 years ago. “Imitation” in the sense that anything goes, especially political correctness being foolishness in the right comedic mouths, such as the quote above addresses little and mentally-challenged people while Burgundy references his own child.
Anchorman 2 beats comedies of 2013 by a length, even my favorites, The Internship and Identity Theft. If it’s going to be funny, then best to go all out as Sacha and Ferrell do, where race relations and media harmony are decimated by exposing their inherent hypocrisy. On the world scene, Champ Kind (David Koechner) has the best line: “I believe in two things: Chicken, and that the census is a way for the UN to make your children gay.”
But sometimes it’s just low humor, for example as Ron says, “Who the hell is Julius Caesar? You know I don’t follow the NBA!” or “I’m so lonely, I paid a hobo to spoon with me.” What makes it funny is the sincerity with which Ron believes he is insightful when he really misses the whole point. Yet, he and the rest of his news team are actually likable so that the base humor comes off as nonsense rather than bigotry or worse, idiocy. When Ron exclaims, “By the hymen of Olivia Newton-John!” not only is the burst absurd, but it is also somehow dear.
“Absurd”: That’s what appeals to me. The utter foolishness captures cultural foibles while it entertains: In all sincerity Ron says, “The Tooth Fairy’s exposed breast made the child uncomfortable.” So much of what is said in this film is uncomfortable and hilarious at the same time. That’s satire at its best.
I miss Dorothy Mantooth….

It would have been a miracle if the writers usurped the material from the first movie, and they have tried so hard, but with trying so hard, it sometimes falls very hard on its face.
The main problem is that the film is just way too long. They could have trimmed 30 minutes easily, the blind sub plot is awful, and really slows the films pace down. If this wasn’t included and it just went to the last fifteen minutes, it could have been something else, but with its inclusion, it just feels bloated.
It still has its surreal sense of humour, and it works when Ron is reforming his team, but as soon as they reach New York, it loses its way in its own absurdity.
Beck is still the funniest thing in the film, and the inclusion of a love interest is funny too.
Things that were leftfield in the first movie, are handled awfully in this and the prime examples here are condom choices, not as funny as the aftershaves in the first, and the fight at the end.
The first was subtle, with a couple of good cameos. Here, they have gone overboard with pointless cameos, and when Harrison Ford turns into a werewolf, and no one laughs, you know a film is gasping for breath.
So it starts good, falters in the middle, and the less said about the end the better.
Not a disaster, but crushingly disappointing.
