Breaking News! Anchorman 2 Sucks
Anchorman 2 really sucks. I am not giving this a 1 out of 10 because there are some things about this film that don’t make it a 1. Lets go deeper into this.
The story is terrible, predictable and cliché. Definitely one of the movies weakest points here. Ron Burgundy is fired from his old job, so he gets offered a new job and this is his chance to make an ‘epic’ comeback on his road to ‘changing the news forever’. I did not enjoy the story at all.
The acting is one of the best parts about this movie. Unfortunately the acting + dialogue combo is lacking majorly because the writing is so, so stupid and the jokes are un- humorously funny. The parts that are funny, are also stupid, but Steve Carrell executes his lines and acting very well that it makes it funny. Keep in mind this only happens for about 10% of the film though.
I could not believe the ending when I saw it. The ending made Scary Movie 5 look like an absolute god. The ending is THE most ridiculous, stupid, un-funny and flat out crazy. It makes absolutely no sense. Everything up until that point, everything was believable and you thought to yourself ‘this could somehow be possible for these events to occur’. But as soon as that ending come up thats it. Everything is lost.
This is not as bad as Grown Ups 2, but its very close.
* Weak Story -Very un-funny humour -Stupid Humour -Bad Writing +Good acting +Steve Carrell is sometimes funny
Disappointing Near Train Wreck
Such a disappointment. Where to begin?
(This review will make more sense if you’ve seen the film.)
The first film had a nice coherent theme: male chauvinist 1970s TV anchorman, simultaneously threatened by and romantically involved with a woman entering his profession, becomes a better person when he accepts her for her competence and ability.
The second film SHOULD HAVE BEEN: dimwitted 1980s TV anchorman, tempted by success and a ratings-obsessed woman boss he desires, becomes a better person when he commits to journalistic integrity. The seeds were all there for that, and that SHOULD have been the thrust of the film.
Instead, the “romance” (if you want to call it that, since there is ZERO chemistry) does nothing but consume screen minutes while being completely unnecessary to the plot. Yes, she’s black and Ron Burgundy initially has difficulty with that–the scene in which he offends her middle class family by talking in stereotypical black street slang to them is mildly amusing–but that difficulty has ZERO consequence for the plot. And the female boss is discarded by the script near the end, because (1) she didn’t have anything to do, anyway, and (2) Ron has to reconcile with Veronica. (Verdict: Unnecessary, episodic distraction.)
Which brings up the second major subplot: Ron trying to reconnect with his six-year-old son. This is ultimately what the climax of the movie is built around: Ron trying to get to his son’s recital in order to prove that “daddy cares” (how many times are we going to see this recital cliché?). One problem: WE DON’T CARE. The kid seems perfectly happy and well-adjusted, and Ron never seems too broken up about not being in the kid’s life. If the climax of the movie resolves the problem, there has to be A PROBLEM. (Verdict: The script doesn’t care much about this plot line, so neither do we.)
The Brick/Chani romance is occasionally charming but it, too, has zero connection to the plot. If excised completely from the film, it would make no difference. (Verdict: Unnecessary, episodic distraction.)
The subplot that SHOULD be the main theme–it’s the only area in which the film has something intelligent to offer–is the conflict between entertaining, facile news that gets ratings or important investigative journalism. The script has all the elements in place–Fantana writing an expose about poorly maintained airplanes, the station’s owner wants the piece covered up because he owns an airline, Ron’s boss (and love interest) wants him to suppress the story to keep the owner happy. But this subplot–the IMPORTANT ONE, the one where Ron actually makes a meaningful change in his life–is given VERY short shrift. The climax of the film SHOULD be built around Ron choosing integrity and trying to get Fantana’s piece on the air. But, no, the best the script can do is give Ron a few words on the air about journalism’s responsibility to the public and then it’s off chasing the other, uninvolving subplot. As far as we know, Fantana’s piece never made it to the air.
There is also a loooooooong sequence late in the film leading up to the climax where Ron goes blind and lives a hermetic lifestyle in an old lighthouse. This is supposed to be where Ron takes stock of his life, has a change of heart, etc., and gains the wisdom/strength to resolve the film’s central dilemma (which is–take your pick–restoring his relationship with his son, winning back the friendship of his news team, resolving his romantic relationship with his boss, or finding journalistic integrity). EXCEPT IT DOESN’T. It’s just another long, unconnected episode that has doesn’t really prepare you for what comes after it.
All of the weaknesses in plot could be forgiven if the movie was one laugh-out-loud moment after another. But it isn’t. In fact, 15 minutes in, I was sure this thing was going to be a total disaster. It isn’t, but that’s not to say it’s successful, either.
The funniest moment is probably the RV scene; but you’ve seen that in the trailer. The only time the movie gets near the clever comedy of the first is when it’s ripping it off: there’s another scene with Brian Fantana opening a closet of manly accessories (condoms this time, not cologne) and another news team battle. I’ll say this: the news team battle in this one–it’s the climax of the film–is overflowing with celebrity cameos. But it really comes out of nowhere and doesn’t have the wacky freshness that original fight did.
Upshot: incoherent plot, too many diversions from the main theme, long stretches of unfunny material, and recycled gags from the first film keep this movie from rising above a disappointment.
