"Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" movie quotes bring the gut-busting laughs back in the long-awaited sequel to "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy." The whole gang, plus numerous cameos, is back for the comedy movie as is director Adam McKay, who co-wrote the film with leading actor Will Ferrell. "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" opened in theaters in the United States on December 18, 2013.

In "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and his news team of Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Champ Kind (David Koechner) and Brick Tamland (Steve Carrell) have been out of the news game for a while but are brought back to work at a new 24-hour news station, GNN. Accordingly, they all hop in a motorhome and trek from San Diego to New York City, roaring with the 1980s.

But adjusting to the decade, the city and the new competition is tough for Ron as he deals with a new female black boss (Meagan Good), his ex-wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), and a new rival Jack Lime (James Marsden). Luckily he has old friends, like San Diego rival Wes Mantooth (Vince Vaughn) and a whole bunch of new chums including those of roles by Kristen Wiig, Harrison Ford, Jim Carrey, Liam Neeson, Kanye West, Sasha Baron Cohen, Tina Fey, Greg Kinnear, Amy Poehler and many others.

While "Anchorman 2" is sure to be a hit with fans, it has competition from other movies playing such as "Her," "American Hustle," "Saving Mr. Banks," "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," "Dallas Buyers Club," "Inside Llewyn Davis," "Out of the Furnace," "The Last Days on Mars," "12 Years a Slave," "Frozen," "Oldboy," "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," "Delivery Man," "Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas," "Ender's Game, "The Counselor," "Captain Phillips," "Gravity," "Don Jon," "Rush, and "Prisoners".
