  • Will Ferrell returns to the role of Ron Burgundy in ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES, which finds the popular San Diego television newsman pulling up stakes with co-host Veronica (Christina Applegate), his intrepid reporter Brian (Paul Rudd), overenthusiastic sports reporter Champ (David Koechner), and imbecilic weatherman Brick (Steve Carell) in order to move to New York City and launch the first ever 24-hour news network. Adam McKay, who directed the original, returns as well to helm this comedy.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Adam McKay and Will Ferrell keep things classy in this generously funny new adventure for '70s-era newsman Ron Burgundy, here catapulted into 1980..."
    Rolling Stone

    "[A] good percentage of the funny stuff is right on the money....[Farrell] is, as before, a dunderheaded delight in this role..."
    Hollywood Reporter

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[It] sneezes up enough nonsense non-sequiturs, crack-smoking irreverence and hair-based hilarity to tickle anew....The laughs are well-spread..."
    Total Film

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here are still considerable spurts of laughter, primarily when Ferrell/Ron is on screen and in the newsroom, unwittingly sparking a revolution in newscasting through his own obtuseness. "

    "ANCHORMAN 2 has its distinct pleasures, chief among them its characters....[Carell's] scenes are hysterically saturated with the eternal sunshine of a spotless mind."
    Los Angeles Times

    3 stars out of 4 -- "The movie cleverly spoofs the 24-hour TV news cycle, as well as sexism and racism in the workplace....Most of the comic antics generate laughs."
    USA Today

    "[T]he way Ferrell flings himself into this absurdist character, and wrings laughs out of some of the most politically incorrect scenarios anyone would dare try in 2013, is a marvel."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[H]ilarious....Will Ferrell may be our greatest conjurer of clueless cinematic blowhards..." -- Grade: B
    Entertainment Weekly

    3 stars out of 4 -- "It's been nearly a decade since Ferrell played the role, but it still fits him like a comedy glove."
    Rolling Stone

    "Adam McKay and Will Ferrell keep things classy in this generously funny new adventure for '70s-era newsman Ron Burgundy..."

    "There are a handful of strong sequences. The early stretch in which Ron rebuilds his news team en route to GNN is a kick..."

    "Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are comedys premier purveyors of pop surrealism, and ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES is their most dream-like film since 2008s STEP BROTHERS..."
