Movie poster for “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”.

I accidentally rented this movie when we actually wanted to see the first one in the series. And since we had started this one already, we only had 48 hours left to watch this second instalment.

And this wasn’t as good. Yes, it was (partly) funny (oh, boy, that scene with Steve Carell “announcing” the weather!), but everything was just over the top. There were not many new ideas, instead everything from part one was dialled up to 11, and it kind of gets on ones nerves.

Soundtrack was again pretty groovy, and the media criticism wasn’t bad, either.
