Anchorman 2 Reviews: Does the Sequel Stay Classy?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Anchorman 2 reviews. 99% of the time, they're right every time.

With the wildly anticipated sequel to one of Hollywood's most quotable movies hitting theaters tomorrow, we've gathered a series of critic excerpts below in order to help you decide whether it's worth checking in with Ron Burgundy and company again after all these years.

So relive the very best Anchorman quotes, spray on some Panther cologne and scroll down for more...

For almost every aspect of the movie I want to criticize, there is a corresponding defense. - The Arizona Republic

While I'm glad "Anchorman" is back - we need a little levity in this year of heavy films - I do wish it were better. - The Los Angeles Times

The movie cleverly spoofs the 24-hour TV news cycle, as well as sexism and racism in the workplace. Not every scene is equally funny, of course, but most of the comic antics generate laughs. - USA Today

The sheer density of the jokes guarantees a few laughs for every taste ... and the loose, improvisational energy of the performers keeps things lively. - The New York Times

It follows a limp comedy sequel formula and its lone sincere effort to break that pattern is met with mixed success. It's still - and this is the most important part - extremely funny. - CraveOnline

If Anchorman 2 seems hit-and-miss now, there's a significant chance that it will get funnier over the long haul. - AV Club

Of course, the plot is pretty much beside the point in a film like this one. What we want are jokes that are as comforting and familiar as the laugh track on a sitcom rerun. - Entertainment Weekly

Will Ferrell is a comedic genius. Those who don't "get it", are just ignorant fuhqtards.
