There is an air of mysticism and legend when it comes to Anchorman, not only concerning the antics on screen but offscreen as well. The type of fanbase that the Anchorman films have accumulated is to such a level that an almost cultic status has been reached, one that I cannot seem to fathom.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues serves up another fresh, ludicrous, wild and surreal doseage of filmic fun. Starring Will Ferrell as the infamous Ron Burgundy but alongside a cohort of numerous actors from the likes of Harrison Ford, Meagan Good and cameos featuring Will Smith, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Carrey, Tina Fey, Liam Neeson - the list goes on - Anchorman 2 seems to give fans exactly what they want.

The general narrative is carried on from the previous film; still reporting the news, Ron Burgundy does what he does best. Now married to Veronica Cornerstone (Christina Applegate) with a son in company too, Ron Burgundy feels as if he is on top of the world...

Husband & Wife...

that is until his world suddenly begins to fall apart; not only does his wife leave him, Ron loses his job, his son and the company of his friends.

You have a friend in me...

Retribution and redemption is the description of this film to the hilt. Director Adam McKay gives a sterling attempt at balancing the seriousness with the absurd; a theme that is ever more prevalent with the Burgundy tagline stating ' I'm quite a big deal'.

...Time to fight...

Ron's journey takes him from becoming blind to befriending a shark to finding new love.

Not friends after all...

A real rollercoaster of a ride is set in motion for those who rather watch something light and fun than deep and complicated.
