Here's a secret that anyone who has spent time working at a television station knows: news anchors (and the occasional weather person) who think they're funny love quoting Anchorman. A "I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch," here, a "You stay classy, San Diego," there, so on and so forth. Why none of them realize the movie they should be identifying with is Broadcast News remains a mystery.
A new trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is out and we're sure it's bringing big laughs to newsrooms across the country, as well as all of those who've spent the last nine years waiting for the further adventures of Ron, Bryan, Brick, and Champ.
As for the trailer itself, it doesn't reveal much about the movie, but the plot isn't what's bringing in the viewers here. No one going to see A2:TLC is hoping for emotional catharsis or life lessons learned. All they need is Will Ferrell with magnificent hair and some one liners they can spend the next few years beating in to the ground.
Just remember to make sure your mike is off before you start making jokes. Stay classy.
