You know what? I don’t care if Anchorman: The Legend Continues is exactly the same as Anchorman, because based on this trailer I will still love it just as much. I think nearly a decade is enough distance between these movies – it gave me more than enough time to love it, obsess over it, forget about it a little, start quoting again, enjoy it on TBS, forget about it again, and then anticipate the sequel.
You know how Hangover 2 had exactly the same plot as the original, except it took place in Thailand? And that it sucked? Right. Well I think doing a sequel too soon after an original hit is a big mistake. Most sequels in general are just a big mistake, but I have high hopes for Anchorman 2 - mostly because of the cameos, but also because I have genuinely missed Veronica Corningstone, Ron Burgundy, and the rest of the Channel 4 News Team.
It looks like the suits are still fine enough to make Sinatra look like a hobo:
Happy Easter, indeed.
