When I watched Anchorman 1 in the cinema all those years ago it did not blow me away, years later I caught the movie again and viewed it in a different light, there are so many quotable lines that for whatever reason were deemed silly and blase first time round, years later the original seemed to have a second life on TV networks and DVD releases, It’s now known as a comedy cult classic.
I was excited about ” The Legend Continues” , the movie is very funny and you can see that the cast and the writers went all out to impress and please, it does kind of feel like a holiday resort that you experienced years ago, the staff were funny, loving and friendly and you go back years later and nothing has changed, problem being , try as you might, you can’t recreate that first magic holiday!, that’s kind of how this film feels, I still had fun watching and cannot deny how funny the entire cast are, but that youthful innocence and energy is no longer evident.
I would happily digest another, the 90’s would be interesting.
I walked into this film expected a blasé movie,there are part’s which are, but then Paul Rudd lifts the film up and brings his everyman sarcastic nature to what would have been a misable film.
Jennifer Aniston plays her usual Rachel character to a new boring degree.
The film is about a couple who are stressing over their career and success,in between their journey they stumble across a bunch of people who change their out look on life…..
6/10 (Just for Rudd)
Oh Jenifer, Your Beauty is undeniable I have to admit you are my guilty pleasure, even though you pain with your acting skill, your beauty always transfixed me. I can always find a way of defending you in someway….”but that has to stop now”. Jeez Louise, she was just damn right awful in this movie. Like I said I will normally throw her a life line, I know she is a one trick pony, but when your one trick starts to fail than its time to let her sink. “This is the movie business not the beauty business”. It was the horrible bosses movie that got me, that was supposed to be her shinning moment, to show she had some different skills( fart noise),forget it Jen, you should have given Brad the children he desired and let him do the acting, because the I want to concentrate on my career” hasn’t really worked out has it?”
Side note to Paul Rudd, you can piss off as well, man was someone holding a gun to your head when you signed this contract. He thought.” Oh well if she can do it, why can’t I”.
If you have ever seen the episode of South Park when Kyle wakes one morning and everything he hears on TV is just fart noises, then this is that movie.
P.S If you ever see that David Wain has written or directed a movie, avoid it like an Eddie Murphy Film.
