Although 'Anchorman 2' wasn't groundbreaking at the box office even being a more moderately budgeted comedy, it did make significantly more than its beloved 2004 predecessor. So, could there be an 'Anchorman 3' somewhere down the line? As far as co-writer and director Adam McKay is concerned ... No. Never. Ever.

Dorothy Mantooth Is a Saint! Watch the ‘Anchorman’ Bit Played Out in ‘The People’s Court’

Funny or Die Anchorman People's Court Sketch
Funny or Die

In a famous scene from the first 'Anchorman' movie, the Channel 4 news team had a throw down of the words with the competing Evening News team led by Vince Vaughn's Wes Mantooth. As each side threw shade at the other, Champ (David Koechner) made a remark about Wes' mother, causing the phrase, "Dorothy Mantooth is a saint," to be repeated by fans for years to come.

Now Funny or Die has gone ahead and dramatized the repercussions of Champ taking Wes' mom, Dorothy, out for a nice seafood dinner and never calling her again -- in 'The People's Court'!

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Anchorman 2′ Can’t Quite Catch ‘The Hobbit’

Paramount
Paramount

The return of Ron Burgundy and his news team has been positioned as a big, huge deal. 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' has been marketed more than any major release this month and everyone just assumed that the film would effortlessly snag massive box office numbers thanks purely to saturation (on top of the fact that the original is quite beloved). So it must sting a little for Paramount to see the film open in second place and it must sting even more once they compare the opening numbers to the opening of the first film from 2004.

‘Anchorman 2′ Review

Anchorman 2 Review
Paramount

There are a handful of extremely funny, laugh-out-loud moments in 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.' One happens early – the reveal that David Koechner now runs a cut-rate fast-food joint that saves money by serving fried bats (or, as he calls it, “chicken of the cave"). Another is a retread from the first film – a battle royale of news teams from various networks, but this time even more extreme. There's also great humor in what I suppose passes for “the point” of this movie – that lowest common denominator attitudes like those of Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy are what inadvertently invented the cesspool of modern cable news.

Of course, what you will find funny is entirely dependent on your own taste, but these highlighted scenes (and several others, I must point out) really landed with me. It struck me later, as I was trying to piece together why the movie felt about six hours long, that these moments were all dependent on gags that could not have been ad-libbed. Ferrell, Koechner, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and the rest of the gang are deservedly respected for their quick-thinking comedy chops. When they get together and riff, few can top them. The problem is that 'Anchorman 2' relies on this far, far too much. It's like a a dessert plate where mounds of fluffy whipped cream obscures the fact that, underneath, there's only a tiny bite of pie.

Paul Rudd - Monologue (1 Direction & Cast of... by IdolxMuzic

When someone guest hosts 'SNL,' it's usually because they have something to promote. Even the great Paul Rudd doesn't host the show for no reason. The man has 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' coming out soon and he's got to keep the promotional train a'moving. Call this week's opening monologue a commercial if you want, but man, it's one heck of a commercial. Anything that lets us see Ron Burgundy's news team reunite to perform "Afternoon Delight" is worth the effort. Oh, and there's also that band One Direction because the kids like 'em.
