60% OF THE TIME IT WORKS 100% OF THE TIME: Anchorman 2 review out now

As you can see by the title of this post, I struggled to remember any stand out jokes from the new Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues film, instead using the dubious statistics of the Sex Panther aftershave from the first film. One of the main reasons why this is has happened is because the jokes in the new film, copy, parody and extend to a ludicrous degree in the new film. It's very hard to remember the new ones, because they are so much like the old ones.

The Anchorman sequal has fallen foul of the follow-up sickness. All the jokes are a kind of nostalgia for the old film, which is never a good thing to do. While you want to pay homage to the first film, you never want to clearly admit to your audience that even you thought the original was better.

Listen to our review of Anchorman 2 in the player below, or you can subscribe and listen on iTunes too.

Don't forget to listen to some of our other recent reviews, including Spike Lee's remake of Oldboy (seriously, if you want to see this version, listen to our podcast first).

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has also recently come out, and me and Richee discuss Peter Jackson, made up characters and dragons. Enjoy!
