There’s no way to say this except the really rude way I already said it in the title — the Anchorman 2 trailer has just arrived on the scene, and it stinks and steams like a pile of hot New York garbage. I guess I figured that since the writers and the director had taken an almost ten year hiatus in between movies, it would give them lots of time to craft new ideas that were just as funny as the first version, but instead it seems to have caused some of the inspiration to melt and drip out of their earholes. No offense. (It’s not rude if I say ‘no offense’ at the end of a sentence, right? I remember that being a thing.)
I guess I’m finally starting to understand why they’re packing this cast with so many celebrity cameos, because it doesn’t seem like the plot is quite solid enough to hold up. So instead of improving the script, let’s throw some money in the air to see if Kanye West and Drake will come dance in it! And put a pie out to cool and see if Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will show up to steal it out of the windowsill. As much as I love those ladies, their presence alone does not a good movie make. Just watch the trailer for yourself.
