I really loved Anchorman when it came out and the first 4-5 times I saw it after that. But it was terribly over-played and over-quoted and I can't get past the first 10 minutes if I tried to watch it now. I will try to go into the sequel with an open mind, but I don't have good feelings about it, honestly.

If it's all the same cast, I'm in. If not, probably won't go see it in theaters.

"Ron Burgundy" was hilarious on Conan last night when he announced it.

I just like the way Ron Burgundy made fun of Conan. Other than that all I could think was how old Will Ferrel is getting and his voice sounded weird.

I'll see it. A little worried that it'll be more of the same, but I think they're good enough to make it something new and exciting.

So doing the math, there is a 50% chance that a Will Ferrell movie will be good, 50% chance that a Steve Carrell movie will be good, and a 25% chance that a Paul Rudd movie will be good. So in the end, this movie has just over a 6% chance of being good. They got lucky last time but I think this will probably not be that great but I will definitely see it.

I think there are enough brainless fans of the first one that they will like this regardless.

I don't think that's how math works.

Can you cite your sources where you got those percentages?

Why? Do you think they are too high?

But to answer your question, I used math and science.

That really isn't how math works though. You'd average the percentages not multiply them. 6% is the chance that each one will make a separate movie and all three will be good.

Based on your numbers the odds of it being good are somewhere around 41%

my thoughts exactly.

also im looking forward to this at the very least for a cheap laugh, but i expect something more like a caddyshack 2. i thought the first one is in my opinion a top 15 comedy of all time so this could be ok.

Look at Corey getting all defensive because he's a big dummy.
