Back in 2004, Anchorman was a surprise hit. It was always going to find an audience, with its ‘Frat Pack’ and SNL alumni connections but nobody expected it to be the monster success that it was. In the years since, the movie has taken on cult status and that it why a sequel was such a huge risk. I had only recently seen the original and was less than impressed so I didn’t hold out much hope for Anchorman 2. Ferrell is always hit or miss for me but I went anyway because…… well thats what I do.
