Very Funnny

This is an amazing follow up to the hilarious 2004 comedy. However, this movie is not for kids. There is some intense language, two uses of f**k, a couple uses of b****h, one use of a**, several uses of h*** and d**m, and a couple uses of s**t. The sex is not too bad, just a couple of lewd references, that will surley make your teens laugh, and some suggestive sex scenes. But, the content is not too extreme, and teens about the age of 12 and up will be able to handle it.

Great movie

This movie was very funny. Ron and his friends had no common sense although Ron and his friends do help each other in a comical way.

Decent silly and dum

Anchorman 2 just like the first one is crude sexist shock humour but if you can get over that it is funny. Brick gets more screen time. And there is violence one extremely violent scene involving a deep fryer.l language is one use of f**k bi**h he*l da*n hymen and more sex is one brief sex scene no nudity. Also a lot of sex jokes but every scene Ron spends with is son is big laughs it is a decent dum silly comedy for mature 12 year olds

Yuk! Will Ferrell, why?!?!

Don't do it! our family are huge Will Ferrell fans, and thought the original Anchorman was funny, despite some sexual innuendo. But this one was not only not funny, but the amount of stupid and crude sexual innuendo was over the top. My 12 year old has seen Austin Powers and other PG-13 comedies - but we all agreed this one could have used a higher rating.

Six Year Olds Can Handle It

I saw Anchorman 2:The Legend Continues with my six year old brother and to movie was fine. It was a very light PG-13 and I think it is perfect for anyone 6 and over.

Only watch it if you enjoyed the first

Let's just say I did not enjoy the first Anchorman, and the sequel was about the same. Just a whole bunch of jokes that weren't funny and stupid humor. My brother throughly enjoyed it though… I can't wait for the day he will stop reciting lines from it. So, ya, don't watch it (unless you liked the first one)

Anchorman 2 review...

I personally liked this film. on the other hand, Parents need to know that this is an adult film.. And most of the content is questionable for Younger adults. I noticed in this film that the F-word was used at least three times.. (“One of the F-words was mumbled .”) I would also want to be aware that it also contains drug and sexual material.. Otherwise, great for older teenagers..

Funny as hell!!!!!!!!!!

MESSAGES: There is actually one decent good message including the importance of family and love which is more important than the actual news. ROLE MODELS : None VIOLENCE: There is some very comical violence most notably the two main action scenes: Where the RV crashes down and the news rumble part 2. It is less brutal than the last installment since it's rated PG-13. SEX: Light sex, but still graphic for little kids including choosing the right condom. LANGUAGE: A couple of curses but nothing major. CONSUMERISM: ESPN and MTV( not a lot) DRINKING: Slight passages of people drinking. DRUGS: The news anchor team is smoking crack. SMOKING: Heavy passages of smoking crack and light cigarette smoke.

Possibly one of the funniest movies ever

Even if you havn't seen anchorman, anchorman 2 will make your holiday season even more exciting. Ferrel, Rudd, Koencher, and Carrel return as the mischievous news crew, who has just recieved a new job in New York. There are many inappropriate scenes and references, but it's still hilarious! Also, nobody could play Brick better than Steve Carell, he is perhaps the funniest character in the entire history of film. I will not spoil anything, but you need to see this! Grade A+ and one of the best movies ever

Pretty inappropriate But nothing Graphic

This movie has lots of sexual jokes...LOTS. Not as bad as the first but still a Lot. First off there is some language. Mostly S words, d words, a words, dicks, b words and 2 muffled f words. Lots of sexual humor. Ron says that there boss raped him which is shown, implied sex but also shown but played for laughs, kissing scene shows underwear also played for laughs, and over 100 sexual jokes some drinking and nothing really bad other than sex humor and language. Good for 12, 13 year olds.

It was good, but a lot like the first one. BRICK IS AWESOME!

There are sooo many sex jokes in this movie. I mean, Brick was going on a date and his friends gave him condoms.. Brick is really stupid but he is HILARIOUS. The rest of the news team is really perverted. Young kids won't get the inappropriate jokes. There is also a good amount of swearing.. Another thing was that the movie kept on going back and forth (happy, then sad, happy, then sad) It was weird and it gave me a headache. The news team smoked pot and talked about "top 100 vaginas" or something like that on a news broadcast.. And the people loved it. Ron was going to give his ex a sexy gift until he found out that she found a new boyfriend. So he gave the gift to his son and he was "lace man"

The funniest and best movie I've ever seen in my life, should have been rated R.

Anchorman 2 is a sequel to Anchorman, viewers do not need to watch the first movie to get what is going on with the plot. This contains a HUGE amount of crude and sexual content and humor. There is one comic scene where Ron(Will Ferrell) is sleeping with his boss (No nudity depicted) All this sexual humor is not brief and can sometimes drag on for a couple of minutes. The words "Sh*t", "ass" "bitch" "damn" and one non-sexual use of the word "F**k". One brief scene has the main characters smoking crack on live television, though they are depicted being arrested , the characters make some what persuasive remarks while doing drugs. The humor in this is completely irreverent and extremely funny. Since this takes place in 1984, so there is a small amount of racist humor involved. Especially when Ron is eating dinner with his African-American girlfriends family. There is a small amount of violence, but all the violence is completely comical.

You're better than this, Adam Mckay.

Of Course, it could never be as good as the comedy classic that is the original Anchorman, but I didn't really expect it to be this unfunny. I personally feel as if Steve Carrel's Hilarious depiction of the mentally handicapped Brick Tambland was the highpoint of this meh film.

Funny enough to merit a matinee or a rental, but nowhere near the original

If you have seen the first Anchorman, there is no more violence in II than was in the first (both include comical fight scenes). Product placement/consumerism is likewise similar. In keeping with Ron Burgandy's gradual emergence into "forward thinking" society, he now makes the leap from reluctant acceptance of women as professional peers to a black woman as a boss (and more). This is the predominant sexual situation, and it is (as usual) at Ron's comical expense. The language in this movie is as conspicuously overdone/pushing the envelope for a PG-13, as usual these days. This is funny, but in my opinion not nearly as much so as the original. Still loved it, though.

Anchorman 2 is Not as Good as the First

Anchorman 2 is funny from the start but as it says in the title it is not as good as the first. The movie is insanely ridiculous much like the first, but if you did like the first this one you'll enjoy the second just not as much.

Will Ferell did well in this one!

I honestly believe that a 12 year old can watch this. There is no nudity... a little glimpse of a sex scene though, but no naked parts are shown. This movie has a great back story and truly one of Ferell's best. Very little blood(when almost eaten by shark) and the fight scene is more humorous than gory. I recommend to have your family watch this, a bit of swearing but you'll get a laugh out of this.
