When Ron (Will Ferrell) and Veronica (Christina Applegate) are called in to Mack Tannen's (Harrison Ford's) office at the start of the film, Tannen comes face to face with Veronica and moves her hair. Ron then says, "You like-a da merchandise, ehh?", quoting a line from Watto in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999). Harrison Ford played Han Solo in Star Wars: Episodes IV through VII.

I have a black man that follows me everywhere when it's sunny.
Actually, I think that's your shadow Brick.
I call him Leon, he's about half as tall as I am, depending on what time of day it is. He likes to play the timpani, and he is a water color.
What happens to him when it gets cloudy outside?
He goes home.

Anchorman 2 really sucks. I am not giving this a 1 out of 10 because there are some things about this film that don't make it a 1. Lets go deeper into this.
The story is terrible, predictable and cliché. Definitely one of the movies weakest points here. Ron Burgundy is fired from his old job, so he gets offered a new job and this is his chance to make an 'epic' comeback on his road to 'changing the news forever'. I did not enjoy the story at all.
The acting is one of the best parts about this movie. Unfortunately the acting + dialogue combo is lacking majorly because the writing is so, so stupid and the jokes are un- humorously funny. The parts that are funny, are also stupid, but Steve Carrell executes his lines and acting very well that it makes it funny. Keep in mind this only happens for about 10% of the film though.
I could not believe the ending when I saw it. The ending made Scary Movie 5 look like an absolute god. The ending is THE most ridiculous, stupid, un-funny and flat out crazy. It makes absolutely no sense. Everything up until that point, everything was believable and you thought to yourself 'this could somehow be possible for these events to occur'. But as soon as that ending come up thats it. Everything is lost.
This is not as bad as Grown Ups 2, but its very close.
Weak Story -Very un-funny humour -Stupid Humour -Bad Writing +Good acting +Steve Carrell is sometimes funny
