Anchorman 2: Emerging From The Whale’s Vagina

The first Anchorman movie pissed me off. Though Will Farrell was hilariously locked in character as the smarmy and cocky Ron Burgundy, sipping on-air scotchy-scotch and misinterpreting the meaning of “San Diego,” overall the film was an amusing interpretation of the swingin’ ‘70s.

But San Diego was nothing like that in the ‘70s, and I felt ripped off. The 11 o’clock news in America’s Finest City was your standard talking head, reading murder rates and basking in the glow of a city hall that was – at that time – not constantly reported for their corruption, followed by one minute of requisite Chargers or Padres game lowlights at the 29th minute. I was boring. Nothing to wait up for. A speed bump on the road to Johnny Carson.

I wanna party with THIS GUY!

That is, until Harold Greene hit town. 1973 saw the rise of this dashing mustachioed figure. His face was on every Pennysaver and local paper and his name was on the lips of every housewife and key party guest list compiler. KGTV San Diego’s second banana newsman Jack White, employed as consultant for the first Anchorman, utilized his memories of the acclaimed mustache to help model Farrell’s iconic (and now ubiquitous) persona. Facial hair-wise, Los Angeles had Johnny Wadd, but we had the rated G version that you didn’t have to visit a seedy, sticky-floored theatre downtown to appreciate. Jazz flautist? Well, no. But a swarthy hunk of American male to be certain.

For the sequel the Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues team brings Farrell’s gang of four (David Koechner, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd) to the Big Apple and into the future with the 24-hour news cycle format. To up the comic ante, Producer Judd Apatow brought in ringer James Marsden (X-Men, Enchanted, 30 Rock) to ensure a frolicsome night of gut-busting. Marsden’s timing and delivery can carry most films, so his addition as designated bad guy should prove worthy. As is to be expected, a host of cameos – from Harrison Ford to Sacha Baron Cohen – add to the spectacle.

Though again I will be let down that my childhood was spent with drab newsreaders – many without a hint of lip broom – I will watch this sequel dreaming of what could have been.
