ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES (Adam McKay, 2013)
I had feared the worst, but this really turned out much better than it had any right to. Of course it doesn't scale the Olympian heights that the original Anchorman somehow accidentally did, but it's probably my favourite Will Ferrel movie since. He's always funny, but Ron Burgundy seems to be the character he was born to play. All kinds of stupid hilarious stuff happens, and even the bits which are blatant throwbacks to the first movie with celebrities shoehorned into them all made me laugh. We tried to watch Terence Malick's experimental humanist epic "The Tree Of Life" beforehand, and i'm glad we turned it off and watched this.
