Describe it in 25 words or less.

Pete: A News Reader loses his job to his wife and must find a way to win back both career and family.

Brigette: Catch up with the whole Channel 4 News team and join them on their next adventure.

Any particular reason for choosing this film?

Pete: After watching “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” I thought this would just as good.

Genre:

Pete & Brigette: Comedy

Who was your favorite character and why?

Pete: Brick Tamland because he was ridiculously funny.

Brigette: Veronica Corningston because she fought for her family.

Who was your least favorite character and why?

Pete: Jack Lime because of his arrogance.

Brigette: Kench Allenby because he was greedy.

How was the casting?

Pete: Lots of big names with a couple of new actors too.

Brigette: I enjoyed the new characters introduced in the fight scene, but felt the others had lost a lot of their mojo.

Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while?

Pete: It grabbed me immediately but wasn’t as funny as Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

Brigette: I was really excited to see this one and went into it with high expectations and was sorely disappointed, feeling that the film dragged on a fair bit.

Favorite quote:

Pete: “Who the hell is Julius Caesar? You know I don’t follow the NBA!” – Ron

Brigette: “I have to say this is super creepy and unorthodox.” – Ron

What would you change?

Brigette: I would have liked to see them mix it up and come up with a more original storyline. I felt like they were sticking to a formula: same jokes, an obligatory song, the fight scene again, internal turmoil that didn’t work this time around.

Is it part of a series and have you seen the rest of the series?

Brigette: We recently watched Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy and LOVED it, so this one was a big disappointment for me.

How was the soundtrack?

Brigette: Once again, it was very funky indeed. We’ve put the music from the film on Spotify, Grooveshark and Rdio.

How was the ending?

Pete: Predictable and not as clever as I thought it was going to be.

Brigette: Extremely anti-climatic.

What was the moral of the story?

Pete: It’s never too late to make things better.

Brigette: The love of your friends and family will always be more important than a job.

Who would you recommend it to?

Pete: Anchorman fans.

Brigette: I would only recommend this to die-hard Will Ferrell fans who will see anything and everything he is in whether it’s good or not.
