  4. 4. McKay Awaits Funding For "Anchorman 2" "Anchorman" director Adam McKay tells MTV News that he's currently in discussions with Paramount to get the financing for a sequel. Helping on that front are the cast members - "It's a tricky movie because everyone went and did really well after it, so everyone's prices went up and everyone's time got a little more valuable. But at the same time, graciously, Steve and Paul and everyone agreed to cut their price to come and do [the sequel], which you don't see very often in Hollywood - and cut their price substantially" says McKay. Yet that still doesn't guarantee a green light - "even with that, it's just a budgetary thing with Paramount in terms of how much they'll give us to make it" says McKay. If they do go forward, some further script work will be done this Fall with shooting to possibly begin as early as next February.
  5. 5. Release On November 27, 2013, Paramount Pictures moved the release date up two days from December 20, 2013, to Wednesday, December 18, 2013.

  12. 12. response • • • • • • • • The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 74% approval rating with an average rating of 6.4/10 based on 180 reviews. The website's consensus reads, "It's just as uneven and loosely structured as the first Anchorman -- and while Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues may not be quite as quotable, it's nearly as funny as its predecessor.“ Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter gave the film a positive review, saying "It's bawdy, on-target in its take on what's become of TV news, and packed with wacky performers.“ Joe Neumaier of the New York Daily News gave the film two out of five stars, saying "Anchorman 2 joins Caddyshack II, Airplane II, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo and Arthur 2: On the Rocks on the list of unnecessary sequels.“ Kyle Smith of the New York Post gave the film two out of four stars, saying "Anchorman 2 is like watching Anchorman being re-enacted by semi-professionals trying to cover up their lapses by being extra-emphatic, superdoofy: 2013 Steve Carell does a lousy impression of 2004 Steve Carell.“ A.O. Scott of The New York Times gave the film a positive review, saying "The sheer density of the jokes guarantees a few laughs for every taste ... and the loose, improvisational energy of the performers keeps things lively." [ Chris Nashawaty of Entertainment Weekly gave the film a B, saying "Comedy sequels generally follow the law of diminishing returns. If it has a 2—or, classier yet, a II—in the title, the smart money says that it won't be as funny as the original. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues doesn't defy that axiom, but it's still plenty hilarious in a reheated sort of way.“ Peter Travers of Rolling Stone gave the film three out of four stars, saying "When is a movie fall-down funny even when some scenes fall flat on their fat ones? When it's Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.“ James Berardinelli of ReelViews gave the film two and a half stars out of four, saying "At two hours, Anchorman 2 overstays its welcome by at least 20 minutes, if not longer.“
