My vote for both Worst of 2013. It's like they didn't even try. It's pretty damn sad that Wake Up Ron Burgundy, a movie made up entirely of Anchorman's deleted scenes, is loads better than this lazy, disappointing sequel.

3 1/2 out of 5 stars. I definitely see why most people on this page feel the need to crap all over this movie but I still laughed out loud throughout most of this movie. Admittedly it at times rehashes most of what made the original Anchorman great & most of the cameos were too much (Kayne West & Drake? Seriously?) Say what you want but I will never hear the words "chicken of the cave" without nearly pissing myself.
I did not think it could be possible, but it was even less funny than the first one. Even if the mix of images and their nature was somehow interesting, I'm a really easy public and I laughed like twice. A special mention to the couple Carrel / Wiig, which although being heavily referenced to a mix of recent american indies, is OK and quite fun. Maybe I'm not seeing something, but I really found the editing awful.
If ANCHORMAN 2 had come first, its doubtful that Ron Burgundy would have become the phenomenon that he became. But as it stands, this rather superfluous sequel is still pretty funny in its own strange way. There's a sense of "everything but the kitchen sink" comic anarchy, and it's a blast watching these guys riff off each other, clearly having the time of their lives, broadly lampooning 24 hour cable news.
