“Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” directed by Adam McKay

Movie, 2013

Crass, disjointed, ridiculous but funny reprise of a gang of newsreaders and their resurrection following their appointment to the fledgling world of ‘rolling news.’ A film which doesn’t take itself in any way seriously and doesn’t really invite much in the way of comment or critique either, but which delivers some high octane, daft action, plenty of throwbacks to the original film and general feeling of chaos. It’s hard, even, to say whether the film’s ‘good’ or not – there are a few satirical punches, not least in the bastardisation and sensationalism of what constitutes ‘rolling’ news, but everything’s so ludicrous, the film should be enjoyed on its own terms.
