Director: Adam McKay
Starring: Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate

It's been over 10 years since Will Ferrell introduced the legendary character Ron Burgundy and now that he is back that legendary status continues with the same jokes and news crew as the first one. Somehow though, this time around just didn't do it for me. I am not going to say that my taste in comedy has matured, because I still love a good cheap laugh, but this time around Ron and his crew just weren't that funny.

The story continues into the 1980's and takes the piss out of the introduction of 24 hour news channels like CNN. After Ron gets fired from his co-anchor role with wife Christina Applegate, a new channel subtly called GNN, recruits him and his posse Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner. They even throw in a bit of a political statement about media control with the Rupert Murdoch Esq flavored character played by Aussie Josh Lawson

Most the jokes felt like a regular Saturday Night live show. Your going to get a couple of laughs here and there but nothing to get that hairy belly bouncing. There's about 2 good laughs, and the rest of the movie was just a nostalgic trip back to San Diago days. The big celebrity battle at the end has some nice cameos, but still not enough to mark this down as a legendary comedy.

I loved Steve Carell last time but now his scenes are just stupid, I mean really stupid. Another thing that really got under my skin was this god awful child actor who plays Ron's son. Something about him just really shitted me.
