To say I'm nervous that Anchorman 2 is going to bomb is downplaying it*, but I have to say, the two new trailers released yesterday give me hope that this is going to be a solid movie. And that I think is the key, expectations. If people go into this movie expecting it to be as funny as Anchorman is flat out insane. That movie was one of the great comedy movies of all time. One of the most quoted movies, maybe ever. It was a unicorn, or a four leaf clover, or a rational tweet from Kanye West (boom roasted). So if that's what you're looking for, my guess is on December 20th you're going to be disappointed. But if you just want a solid follow up that has great moments, I think these trailers indicate that that's the direction we're going. Brick talking at his own funeral was hilarious. 'Well you know the old expression....nope' had me laughing like George McFly. So I think these make me optimistic. Just stay out of Caddyshack 2 or Dumb and Dumberer territory and I'll be happy.
* 3rd world problem for a Thursday: I hope I don't get eaten or die of an easily curable disease today. 1st world problem for a Thursday; I hope Anchorman 2 doesn't disappoint me.
PS: These Dodge Durango commercials are fire flames. Is it a gum machine no it's a Dodge Durango!
