Ron is told by his doctor: "Looks as if both optic nerves are separated from their respective corneas .... No other way to put this, but you're blind". The optic nerve does not attach to the cornea, therefore a separation of the two is a normal finding and would not result in blindness. See more »

I needed to get this out of my system. From the promos a while back One would think this is the biggest and hottest movie in some time. One would think, but One would be wrong. This is not funny, the promos weren't funny either. Before the movie was released this Burgundy character was all over the TV airwaves selling Chrysler cars and trucks. Unbelievable. Why? Why? Why? This is what One mumbles to Oneself 24/7.
It is very hard to believe that adults actually made this movie. Nothing worked. No funny lines, no funny sight gags either although they did try especially with Steve Carell's character Brick. I have other words for this movie in mind and I am trying myself to restrain myself. I never saw Anchorman 1, so I cannot make that comparison. Why? Why? Why? See, still doing it.
They even took a page from the first Borat movie when Burgundy is invited to his girlfriend's house for dinner. And, of course, disaster ensues. Again, I am restraining myself. Can't you tell? Huh?
I will have to go on bended knee to the Movie Gods and ask their forgiveness for watching something that should not be watched much less having been made in the first place. I have vowed once again to never watch a Will Ferrell movie unless it's a drama (he's good at that). I hope the Movie Gods will be merciful.
There is absolutely no point in continuing with this. Why? Why? Why? Still at it. (1/10)
Violence: Yes in an alleged comical way that wasn't so humorous. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Language: No. Some soft stuff only and not much of it.
