and I'll watch Step Brothers
Aug. 5, 2010, 2:20 a.m. CST
the first one was largely unwatchable IMO, except for a few GENIUS moments. That's my memory of it anyway.<p>Maybe I'll watch it again and warm up to it.

Except Ghostbusters...which is technically PG but Anchorman would have been much better Rated R. I mean what does it say about our current film state when a buddy cop action comedy is PG-13??? Has there ever even been a PG-13 buddy cop movie? Studios are such pussys(except you Warner Bros.) when it comes to ratings. I don't care what anyone says they make a difference just look at how fake and phony live free die hard feels compared to the first 3. Then they hide behind the unrated DVD cut to proove that they are pussys. TV shows work as PG-13ish but can anyone name me a truly funny film that has been rated PG/ PG-13 that's not called Ghostbusters or Dr. Strangelove. Okay bad examples cause the times ans ratings criteria worked differently so let's say within the last 10-15 years what's a PG-13 comedic gem? And if anyone names Austin Powers...then your a tool. Those movies do not hold up well, I use to laugh my ass off @ those flicks but god they are awful. Let the naming begin!
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:10 a.m. CST
All you have to say for me to go is Adam McKay. Call me easily amused. I'll call you a fag.
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:12 a.m. CST
I'd call you a fag SHITTER. Or...shitty,shitty,fag,fag.
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:12 a.m. CST
Ooo double meaning. I'm talking about Kevin Smiths shit flick and threw in some nice little irony for the kids since PG-13 buddy cop movies are a cop out. Ooh yeah, that's right..I just explained that for all you irony deprived mofos. Gotta get your daily dose of irony(lame)

Brilliant Australian pop/rock band. Been around for about 40 years now.
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:17 a.m. CST
Also it isn't as bad as everyone says it is. Smith only directed it. All the other Smith movies you don't like are his fault.
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:25 a.m. CST
Unless it comes to "Anchorman 2" Lame.
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:28 a.m. CST
A film about a all the women in world vaginas changing into dicks. All the viginas of the world are gone!!!! Ok that is a horror movie right there. After th elast woman on earth loses her virgina all the women of the world become sex crazed rapists, and they start raping all the men of the world in thier asses and mouths. I'm telling you it's comedy gold. Like a zombie movie but not. Crazy man raping chicks with dicks in a pussyless world. Who's ass is safe???

Make good movies, then leave them be. I didn't care for TALLADAGA NIGHTS, but both ANCHORMAN and STEP BROTHERS are excellent, and parts of ANCHORMAN border on genius.
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:38 a.m. CST
then make a damn super fucked up extended version of that film man. I love that movie so much. it's perfectly fucked up. If theres tons of unseen stuff in it that had to be cut for time reasons, now's the time to dick it back in.
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:49 a.m. CST
making it harder to put it back in you could go the "Mr. Payback: An Interactive Movie" by allowing the viewer to use the remote to select which take on the scene they may want to watch. <P>Mr. Payback: An Interactive Movie is right up thier with Troll 2 and the Munchies though...
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:56 a.m. CST
If you expected a whole bunch out of "Cop Out", you might be a redneck. Or... you might just be retarded,and Tommy should hit you on the head, with a tack hammer. C'mon. It was made by the fucking "Clerks" guy. This is, also, coming from a dude called "DutchRudder", who is a little bit of a Smith fan.
Aug. 5, 2010, 4:48 a.m. CST
... and they won't greenlight Anchorman 2.<p> Stay classy, Hollywood.

Aug. 5, 2010, 7:26 a.m. CST
Puerile and retarded but damn it was funny. That sleepwalking sequence, tag team job interviews and the infamous Drumkit tea bagging are standouts. Would love to some more of that unreleased improv.

My wife and I don't agree on much, but we laughed our asses off during most of it.

So I didn't bother reading what this steaming pile of mediocrity had to say about his tedious output of shrieking Will Ferrell moments.
Aug. 5, 2010, 8 a.m. CST
... But I do find the idea of taking ANCHORMAN 2 to the stage first in the same way that the Brothers worked out their material in stage shows before filming them to be an intriguing idea.
Aug. 5, 2010, 8:06 a.m. CST
The one they pieced together from deleted scenes. It's only available as some kind of DVD box set, right? I wanna Netflix it.
Aug. 5, 2010, 8:16 a.m. CST
Everything about that sleepwalking sequence still fucking kills me. If there is more footage from that lying around somewhere then may God have mercy on whoever is holding it back.
Aug. 5, 2010, 8:29 a.m. CST
This was in theaters in 2008. But I watched it again last week and laughed. And laughed. And laughed. It's quite a grower. I certainly wouldn't be against a sequel.
Aug. 5, 2010, 8:30 a.m. CST
I am a Smith fan. Have been for many years. Liked most of his movies (exceptions: Mallrats, Jersey Girl), and I stopped watching Cop Out after 15 minutes. Tracy Morgan was so annoying; I didn't buy him as a cop for even a second, regardless of the comedic context of the movie. Smith didn't write this one and it showed. He should have taken a pass on that one. I wonder if Red State will be worth watching? I sincerely hope so.
Aug. 5, 2010, 8:31 a.m. CST
It's worse. Much, much worse. It literally made me sell all of my Kevin Smith DVDs. ALL OF THEM. That's how bad it is.

There is nowhere to go with it and there are so many better subjects to be comedically explored. I'd like to see Will Ferrell as an MMA fighter, for example.

Gonna be on during jersey shore tonight!
Aug. 5, 2010, 10:24 a.m. CST
with a brand-new story & characters with Farrell, Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Sam Jackson... but they can't reunite the cast of "Anchorman" for a sequel?
Aug. 5, 2010, 10:26 a.m. CST
tryin' to say that "Other Guys" is just "Cop Out" with a different cast.
Aug. 5, 2010, 10:32 a.m. CST
Jersey Shore is on tonight? P.S. Adam McKay is my favorite comedy writer/director so thanks for this interview. Him and Will on Charlie Rose the other night made me happy.
Aug. 5, 2010, 10:43 a.m. CST
i literally couldn't get past the first scene. the 'funny' opener where tracy morgan does movie impressions. i couldnt understand how that was even supposed to be comedy. maybe it wasnt. maybe it was 'urban' comedy (different cultures have different comedy.) either way, i couldnt muster up any interest to watch the rest.<br><br>in fact, i feel bad for "the other guys." unfortunately now they have to work twice as hard to make me interested in that movie.
Aug. 5, 2010, 10:52 a.m. CST
were unfunny trash. As far as I'm concerned Anchorman is a fluke on McKay's part. Not looking forward to The Other Guys....
Aug. 5, 2010, 11:30 a.m. CST
That movie after a couple viewings really became almost a comedy classic for me. It did not get a lot of love and seemed way underrated. One of the best scenes is when deweys folks are dancing to his music and she trips and falls out the window. Stupidhilarious
Aug. 5, 2010, 12:15 p.m. CST
I live in canada and we get what's called 14A rating instead of "R" movies and sometimes "PG-13" like the dark knight was 14A here but PG-13 in the states. But i swear I remember a commercial saying it was PG-13(we get American advertisments) but i guess not. Still it doesn't matter i can't think of any great comedys made within the last 10-15 years that have been PG-13
Aug. 5, 2010, 12:52 p.m. CST
think about it... is this the best we got?? when i see "The Other Guys" i envision the Hollywood wheel spinning yet again... Hollywood exec: let's see what the wheel has for us today- Will Ferrell... let's spin it again.... Mark Walhberg. Great! those two haven't been in a movie together yet!
Aug. 5, 2010, 12:59 p.m. CST
apaprently paramount is watching that realse, if it does well they might ok AM2. I think macay is just saying its dead to either not get fans hopes up or some sort of bargoning chip. So get out there in a few weeks and buy anchorman on bluray, lets show paramount thaty the film is lovedand we want a sequerl
Aug. 5, 2010, 1:08 p.m. CST
in the last 10 years? Not many. Anchorman and Step Brothers are definitely up there. Hangover was overrated and most of Ferrels comedies outside of Anchor and Step Bros. have been hit or miss (Kicking and Screaming being my favorite that's not one of those two).
Aug. 5, 2010, 2:07 p.m. CST
...to describe this man :-)
Aug. 5, 2010, 2:37 p.m. CST
Anchorman, old school, hot rod, sex drive, talladega nights, sarah marshall, superbad, and 40 year old virgin...I'm also a big fan of hangover but its not funny
Aug. 5, 2010, 2:40 p.m. CST
Considering, for the most part, the modern PG-13 rating is about on par with an R from the 70s/early 80s, I really don't see the big deal. As long as the movie is actually made well, the rating is irrelevant IMO. If I was standing in front of my movie collection, I could probably point out a bunch of PG-13 rated comedies that are great. Off the top of my head, not so much. But maybe that proves your point. If the comedy was really, truly great, I should have no trouble remembering it.
Aug. 5, 2010, 2:43 p.m. CST
is a guy that I have NEVER found funny. Before I get flamed for this, lemme just say that I am the LAST dude to hate on something because it's popular. The guy has made a great career for himself and makes other people laugh, and I respect that, but he has literally never gotten a laugh out of me. Not once.
Aug. 5, 2010, 2:56 p.m. CST
I disagree 100%. I think just the opposite. PG-13 has been pussed out. I remember when even a PG movie could say bad words and if you found the right PG-13 you could maybe see some boobage.
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:06 p.m. CST

didnt get to finish my point: yes it's rare, but godfather 2 is far from the only sequel to better its predecessor. and for fucks sake NOBODY wants a step brothers sequel. it's insane i have to even type that.
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:09 p.m. CST
If you watch old R movies (generally speaking of course - there are always exceptions) they're pretty mild. They are definitely not what an R is today.
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:27 p.m. CST
character is so out there, a perody of the dumb, rich movie star that lives in their own bubble. But outside of that, everything seems to be wildly overplayed, going for 10 when a 6 would be just right. And mugging....
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:31 p.m. CST
personally, I like Morgan, but I can see why some others think him unfunny. To those people, I'd say see his standup. It's nothing like the "30 Rock Tracy Morgan". Maybe you'll like his material better when not watered down. Or, maybe not. Just throwing it out there.
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:33 p.m. CST

Its The Fucking Catalina Wine Mixer!<p>Well, its also the non sequitar swearing, such as, "This house is a fucking prison! On Planet Bullshit! In the galaxy of This Sucks Camel Dicks!" There is something about the stream of nonsense obscenity that makes me giggle like a little kid.

PG-13 has been watered down. I say that having watched Just One of the Guys recently (I was bored and it's on netflix streaming). That's PG-13 and there's swearing AND boobs, either f which would be an automatic R these days. Ehhh isn't to say I agree with the PG13 point as there have been good ones over the years, but I won't list them as comedies can be pretty subjective so I'm sure if I list them I'll just get flamed for my lame comedy taste.

The fact that The Other Guys comes out in August, the dumping ground for bad films, should be proof enough of what the studio thinks of this.

Then all involved should defer pay for a cut of the gross. They all want to be paid 20 million each for a film they know won't make a profit so they can get paid to have a good time. Please. And screw you for not setting Anchorman in Philly! You were willing to change the setting to save a buck and get the film made then. Do the same now!

since all those guys are now stars (with the exception of the guy who plays Champ). Hell, Will Ferrell even said "News Team, ASSEMBLE!" in the first Anchorman! The buzz just keeps growing around Anchorman and the potential sequel and the original came out in 2004! That a lot of traction for what was billed as a throwaway comedy. Director McKay and Will Ferrell never go anywhere without being peppered with questions about a potential sequel. Look for it in 5-10 years when Steve Carrell and /or Paul Rudd need a career boost and will come in under their standard payday to make the film the fans have been clamoring for.

Personally, I'm SICK TO DEATH of "outrageous" R-rated comedies that spew filth and racism at the viewer for "shock" effect. The 40-Year-Old Virgin worked because, despite the crass "pussy-juice cocktail" jokes, you actually LIKED the characters, who authentically seemed to be friends, whereas a piece of shit like The Hangover just leaned on it's dirtiness like a crutch, with baby-abusing, naked Asian stereotypes, and anything else just tossed up there for teenagers slipping through while buying a ticket to a PG-13 movie chortlin g like Beavis & Butthead at every inane joke just because, haw-haw, dey's swearin'.

was probably the best Saturday TV Funhouse sketch on SNL (which I wish they'd bring back, I guess SNL Digital Shorts have replaced them). But it's also the one that was never shown. It starts out talking about random conspiracies, but eventually talks about the media oligopolies that exist in our country right now. It's absolutely brilliant and you CAN find it on the internet. Totally recommended. What a great question btw Mr Beaks.

The inflatable auto pilot, white guy teaching black tribesmen basketball, stewardess singing, jive talking african americans with sub titles, June Cleaver cameo, Peter Graves and the boy: Billy, you ever see a grown man naked?, Looks like I picked the wrong to..., Surely you must... That movie never gets old
Aug. 6, 2010, 9:56 a.m. CST
A weird, Michael Moore style, political screed...awful. And the movie was too long and only the first half was remotely funny.

Aug. 6, 2010, 2:21 p.m. CST
I wasn't crazy about it in theaters either, but when it started playing 67 times a day on Starz, I couldn't stop watching it. A lot of it is due to the great supporting cast, which is the case in every McKay movie. Adam Scott's family singing "Sweet Child O' Mine"... Rob Riggle: "LIKE KOBAYASHI!" and, of course, the almighty Richard Jenkins... "Finally, one day, my father told me to put away my childish things and move on. Well, actually, he said 'you're 17 years old, stop trying to be a dinosaur and get a fucking job.'"

Thanks for a look into McKay's politics- I think its interesting and relevant that the yahoos who didn't get Anchorman, were all over Talladega Nights. Not saying one was better than the other, just that one was more profitable. Point being, Talladega was the buy-in for a lot more people than Anchorman, because McKay noticed Bush's ratings and decided to investigate what he thought was Bush's demographics. By embracing the culture, even in satire, he succeeded in making a blockbuster.
