Fans of Will Ferrell-Adam McKay collaborations have been waiting nearly a decade for a follow up to arguably their best work together so far. Quotes from the original are burned into our vernacular – “I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch,” “60% of the time, it works every time,” “I’m in a glass case of emotion!” Now, the wait is over; Anchorman 2 barrels into theaters next Friday.
The film picks up with Ron Burgundy collecting his news team for a spot in the brand new 24-hour news network in New York City. From the opening credits to the closing scene, Anchorman 2 reaches new heights in comedy. Champ Kind is louder, Brian Fantana is smoother, Brick Tamland is Brickier, and Ron Burgundy is all around more legendary.
