Movie Review: Anchorman 2 – The Legend Continues

anchorman_2_the_legend_continues_poster_3We had been out today to the Reel Cinemas at the Dubai Mall to watch the Anchorman 2- The Legend Continues.

Anchorman 2 is the absolutely required sequel of the Anchorman The Legend of Ron Burgundy.  The movie was great and entertaining. If you expect a deep storyline then forget it. This is a movie to watch, laugh and go home and still smile about the scenes.

The storyline in short:

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 Shapp, 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 new found fame last? And will Brick finally find true love?

Ron Burgundy: Who the hell is Julius Ceasar? You know I don’t follow the NBA!

I had the greatest fears going into this movie that it would not be funny and they would destroy the legacy of Ron Burgundy for two reasons. One; it would be hard to follow the comedic genius of the first one. Two; Will Ferrell has not made anything funny for quite a while. Well I guess he was saving it all for this movie. Anchorman 2 does not disappoint. If you don’t think this movie is funny then you will never find any movie funny.

Great is also to see the cast which just has little roles, Will Smith, Kirsten Dunst, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kanye West and  Vince Vaughn which was just hilarious. In my opinion a must see Movie this year. Go out and watch it.
