Seriously, quite possibly, the most average movie I have ever seen. Talk about mailing it in, but in a 2013 sense. Adam McKay and Will Ferrell just decided to repeat every sight gag, every joke from the first film and make bigger. Hey, let's have fight scene, but in the one, we'll have a Minotaur and a Sex Panther bomb. But, it was nice seeing the characters again, they were like old friends that I hadn't seen in a while.

Let's start off with the best part of Anchorman 2 - the newscaster battle royale that takes place at the end of the film. This scene alone made me add an extra half-star if only because it was A) awesome and B) had some of the best cameos in any film. I won't spoil who shows up (some familiar faces and some I wasn't expecting at all). But needless to say when the GNN crew faces off against the BBC, ESPN News, MTV news, …
