Storyline

Having left San Diego for New York City, Ron Burgundy is living the high life with his wife Veronica Corningstone and son Walter Burgundy. However, when the boss decides to promote Veronica to full time lead anchor and fire Ron, everything changes. Now heading back to San Diego, Ron is washed up and working part time at Sea World. His shot at redemption though comes in the form of a man named Freddie Schapp, who's an executive producer at the Global News Network, the world's first 24 hour round the clock news channel. He hires Ron, who proceeds to reunite the news team of Champ, Brick, and Brian, and head back to New York City. While there Ron and his news team are given the graveyard shift and a challenge. Ron comes up with a radical new idea to transform the news and that puts him at the top of the game once again. But how long will Ron's newfound fame last? And will Brick finally find true love?

Goofs

Brick states "I ain't 'fraida no ghost", and is smiling and winking when he does it, so he is clearly seen to be referencing the theme song from Ghostbusters. Anchorman 2 is set in 1980, yet Ghostbusters was not released until 1984. See more »

Quotes

Ron Burgundy: If you've got an ass like the North Star, wise men are gonna want to follow it.

Terribly disappointed
28 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

Liking the first movie a lot, I was looking forward for months the second movie. The trailers and hype built up was huge. I saw it last night and it was awful. No story line, jumps from scene to scene. The jokes weren't funny, and when you do laugh it was minor. Steve's role was stupid as all he does is mumble words. I was happy when it was over and feel bad they ruined a good thing. How it got over a 7 rating here is beyond me.

They could have had any story line better than the one they did. It bounced all over so much it was horrible. How about a GNN launch but a battle with another news team for the lead. This was minimal in the movie. Please save your money for a movie well made and an ounce of thought put into it.
