That title is an understatement. While I’m usually not one to get irrationally excited for a movie, if only because that inevitably leads to disappointment and stupid fanboy butthurt, I’m really, really, really excited about Anchorman 2’s official existence. I went into the first Anchorman with no expectations at a very impressionable point in my life. Therefore, so much of who I am now is a result of that movie. Everything from my love of nonsense humor to my love of journalism to even my love of movies can be directly traced back to that 2004 classic. It has even allowed me to be totally okay with the fact that Will Ferrell plays the same character in mostly everything he does. Endlessly quotable and funny as hell, Anchorman has consistently been my favorite movie of all time.
So how do you top that? I actually don’t think it’ll be that hard. Will Ferrell and director Adam McKay have pretty much spent the last eight years making sequels to Anchorman just with different premises. Go watch Talladega Nights, Step Brothers and The Other Guys and try to tell me I’m wrong. The thing is though, those movies are all great. As long as Anchorman 2 is at least as funny as they are but with jazz flute playing and retarded weathermen it should be just fine.
