    Anchorman is the most underated comedy i know, when i ask people if they've seen it they always say no cuz it looks stupid, but then i hear that they loved it after they see it a few times...its just so ridiculous, thats what makes it a funny movie to me :]

    Tim Robbins-" Public News has taken a break from its pledge drive to kick some commercials...NO MERCY " lol

    Say what you will, but I didn't really like the first one. But I welcome a sequel. It's been rumored/requested for a while now so why not? Anchorman, like any other comedy, ended with barely any to no room for a sequel. All I can say is: I wonder if Ron and Veronica ended up having two boys.

    that was really funny. idk if it will live up to the first, but if they can get rudd and carrell on board, i think it could definitely be entertaining...
