| Not as good as the first one, but still a bunch of fun!
I was a big fan of Anchorman for so long. Will Ferrell's performance is as the type of hero that is so unlikable to the point of ironically being likable and amusing. The jokes were vulgar yet great, it had a charmed that I remember, and the conflict of these characters really made it entertaining to watch. So when I heard all the hype about the sequel, I got eager. The trailers were well done and I had fairly high expectations.

Thankfully, I wasn't disappointed (for the most part) and at the same time, it was a great experience in the theater. The effort went all the way to deserve being a great sequel. As far as plot, the original one is better. However, the humor was slightly funnier than the first. I'll be honest I didn't enjoy the performance of the woman who played Linda, the actress for the part didn't feel right and her involvement in the story made me enjoy this movie less than its predecessor. I laughed a lot, especially at the recurring jokes, such as Brick going from grenade to futuristic gun, Brian going from perfume to condoms, or Champ frequently saying "Whammy!" as a catchphrase. I won't spoil anything, but get ready for the traditional random splooge of cameos during the fight, like the first one. It was so satisfying to see all these famous people show up unexpectedly, including Kanye, Drake, John C. Reilley, and Tina Fey to name a few.

Bottom line, although it might not be as good as the first one or even have the same charm, but it was a hilarious movie. It was brilliantly stupid, so don't go into the film expecting it to be an intelligent comedy. The only way to know whether you like it or is to see it. If you're a fan, it's a must-see. Otherwise, enjoy this movie, even if you hate it after wards!
