Its Burgundy Wednesday which can only mean #Anchorman2 is out today! Here’s our review #film

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 14.12.26

Back in 2004, Anchorman birthed a fan-favourite character in Ron Burgundy and has since gone on to become a cult hit, blossoming into an oft-quoted piece of pop culture. 9 years later, Ron and the team are back by popular demand for another helping of improvised one-liners, celebrity cameos and Brick…being Brick, and the sequel is a worthwhile, if at times over-indulgent follow-up.

Directed by Adam McKay, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues takes place in 1980’s New York, with Ron (Will Ferrell, who co-wrote the screenplay with McKay) now married to co-anchor Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate). When Ron loses out on a promotion to his wife and is unceremoniously fired, he accepts an offer to join rivals GNN – the first 24-hour news network – and quickly reassembles his old team, including Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Champ Kind (David Koechner) and weatherman Brick Tamland (Steve Carell). Only slick anchorman Jack Lime (James Marsden) stands in their way of success.

At its best Anchorman 2 is a hilarious, inspired comedy that manages to tap into what made the original work, effectively giving us more of the same. As the old adage goes, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”, and that certainly applies here. With that said, there is an unexpected but very welcome satirical through-line offering up a light commentary on the importance of good journalism that’s tackled in entertaining fashion.    Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 14.12.50

With many scenes given the improvised treatment (the first cut was 4 hours long), unsurprisingly not every gag hits its mark. Some of those unamusing moments involve an over-indulgence in Brick’s eccentricities, whilst other lapses occur when Ron interacts with African-American boss Linda Jackson (Meagan Good). Particularly when you consider how much the film gets right, it’s disappointing that the filmmakers felt the need to resort to humourless racial jokes.Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 14.13.20

Thankfully, Ferrell’s charm helps to ease the uncomfortable nature of these lazily written scenes, and needless to say he’s at the forefront of the film’s best moments as well. Indeed, If God put Ron Burgundy on this Earth to have salon quality hair and read the news (Ron’s words, not ours), then similarly Ferrell is the man who has been ordained to play him. Elsewhere, Carell’s lovable oddball Brick scores many laugh-out-loud moments, though scenes with Kristen Wiig’s love interest come off as awkward as opposed to funny, whilst Rudd and Koechner both deliver solid turns returning to their supporting roles.

It’s rare for comedies to get a sequel and even rarer for those sequels to be any good. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues proves to be one of the few exceptions, and though it doesn’t quite outdo its predecessor there is plenty of new material for fans of the first film to laugh at. Here’s hoping we won’t have to wait another decade for the inevitable conclusion to the trilogy.

Revealed: Covent Garden Tops Your Tipple! #nightlife #drink @London_Pride #facts

Screen shot 2013-09-04 at 08.49.40So this Summer is going on and on and on! Not that we’re complaining in any way, but if you’re enjoying those long Summer nights of sociable drinking and hanging out with friends in the Capital, then this new insight might be of interest to you! Impress your friends by becoming the most knowledgable of nights out with these interesting facts.

Think you know where the best night out is? Are you the go-to person for the hottest night out in town? Well, did you know that during the week Londoners are most likely to go to Covent Garden for a night out and order a pint to unwind after a working week, according to a new poll on behalf of London Pride.

Over 23% of the 1,000 Londoners surveyed chose Covent Garden as their favourite area to go out in and over a fifth (21%) of Londoners go for a pint on a Friday night.

Whats the top tipple? 

While a pint is the preferred tipple on a night out for the majority of Londoners, 15 per cent choose a glass of white wine and 11 per cent go for a spirit and a mixer. Do you know which category you fall into?

 And surprise, surprise, Londoners don’t break the age old gender habit with 49% of men ordering a pint whilst the ladies of London (20%) much prefer the more feminine glass of white wine! Screen shot 2013-09-04 at 08.41.29

 Call yourself a Hipster? Here’s where the cool kids hang out…

Hot spots for younger Londoners on a night out include Shoreditch and London Bridge. Areas such as Islington, Mayfair, Clapham, Chelsea/Fulham and Greenwich are equally enjoyed by a range of generations in London, whereas Notting Hill and Kensington are more favoured by the older age groups.
