I Love Lamp, Anchorman 2

I Love Lamp, <i>Anchorman 2</i> Will Ferrell, did you read my review of your latest moviefilm and feel that you needed to redeem yourself in my eyes? That is so considerate of you, you big lug! Why else would you and Adam McKay announce you were in the midst of creating a follow-up to the dumb-larious Anchorman just after I made the assertion that of all your various cinematic man-child incarnations, Ron Burgundy was the bestest?

According to, Anchorman 2.0 will jump ahead to the Eighties (no more pornstache? Boo!). As to the remainder of the plot, there's no word, but I have some theories: Ron and Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) are in lurv and mounting a campaign to rule the world of broadcast news, Baxter finds a lady friend to perpetuate his legacy of cuteness and Paul Rudd's character Brian Fantana quits the media racket to develop a line of men's fragrances called Boner Goat.

All I really care about though is Brick coming back. In the intervening years since the first Anchorman came out, Steve Carrell has gotten to be a big ol' Hollywood leading man. Who knows? He might not deem the supporting character worthy of his precious time. I don' t know about you guys but for me a new Anchorman wouldn't be anything without his stupefying non-sequiturs. These types of movies are only as good as their "I pooped a hammer" moments.
