Despite the fact that I hate myself for laughing at anything during a Will Ferrell movie, I was unable to contain myself – a few times.
Most of the movie was rather forgettable. The humor was embarrassing, or most of the time, just not funny. However, I loved the “last battle” scene. That alone almost made it worth going to see, almost.
The social commentary, about the state of journalism in America, was well done and added a layer of depth to the movie. Not that it was any deeper than a teaspoon of water, but it’s better than nothing.
The best I can say is if you’re a Will Ferrell/Anchorman fan then I’m sure you’ll love the sequel. And, if you’re trying to drag someone to see it with you, who isn’t a fan, then you can tell them I said they probably won’t hate it as much as they think they will.

Creator and developer of the RunPee app. When something doesn’t work right in the app it’s pretty much his fault. 🙂
Aspiring author. Would like to finish his “Zombie Revelations” trilogy if he could break away for working on RunPee and the cottage he’s building for RunPee Mom.
