Critical Mass: Will 'Anchorman 2' be tonight's top story?

Jacques Clouseau. Frank Drebin. Austin Powers.

Make way for Ron Burgundy on the Mount Rushmore of comic buffoonery.

With Anchorman 2, the legend really does continue. With Will Ferrell back as the bloviating male chauvinist behind the porn mustache, Paul Rudd on the prowl, Steve Carell courting a she-Brick, and David Koechner crossing every friendship boundary, the chemistry that made the 2004 comedy a frat-boy quote machine is intact. In the new film, Ron reunites the news team at GNN, the first 24-hour cable news station, after a very public fall from grace that cost him his job and marriage to Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate). But you can’t keep a good hair-do down who just wants to read the news.

Like the Austin Powers sequels, Anchorman 2 doubles down on what you giggled the longest at in the first film — for better and sometimes worse. As EW’s Chris Nashawaty writes, “If it has a 2 — or, classier yet, a II — in the title, the smart money says that it won’t be as funny as the original. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues doesn’t defy that axiom, but it’s still plenty hilarious in a reheated sort of way.”

Before you head to the theater, click below to see what the leading critics are saying — and which critics shoe-horn the best Anchorman references in their headlines.

Sony Pictures Classics sets release date for Steve Carell and Channing Tatum pic 'Foxcatcher'

Moneyball director Bennett Miller’s highly anticipated Foxcatcher, starring Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum, will hit theaters on Dec. 20, Sony announced Thursday.

Foxcatcher tells true story of Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) and his younger brother Mark (Channing Tatum), both Olympians, and their fraught and dangerous relationship with John du Pont (Steve Carell), a paranoid schizophrenic and heir to the du Pont fortunes. A late December release date positions the film in an ideal space for awards consideration. Miller’s previous narrative films, Moneyball and Capote, both received significant awards buzz.

'The Way, Way Back' trailer: Sam Rockwell and Steve Carell star in Sundance summer comedy -- VIDEO

We’ve seen Steve Carell do funny. We’ve seen him play crazy. We’ve seen him do awkward. But in Sundance favorite The Way, Way Back, Carell plays mean, and he’s the one picking on the awkward guy: his girlfriend’s teenage son, Duncan (Liam James).

The Way, Way Back follows Duncan through his summer break that’s rather nightmarish whenever he’s with his mom (Toni Collette) and her boyfriend, but has bright moments whenever he’s at the local water park, where he strikes up a friendship with one of the slacker employees (Sam Rockwell).

The trailer shows off a good chunk of Way, Way Back‘s impressive cast, including Allison Janney, Maya Rudolph, Rob Corddry, and co-director/co-writer Jim Rash.

Check out the trailer, which kicks off with one of Carell’s toolish moments inspired by a traumatic moment in Rash’s real life, below: READ FULL STORY
