Dec 19, 2013I'm in shock that this movie is getting such good reviews. I was a fan of the first one, and I love all the actors involved. This movie really wasn't that funny. So many of the scenes fall flat and so many of the jokes are stale. I was surprised by how boring this movie actually was. There are sections of the movie that drag on for so long, I couldn't wait to get the hell out of the theater. I think our standards for comedies have absolutely plummeted in the past 3-4 years.

Dec 21, 2013My only gripe with this film is that no comedy I'll ever see will live up to this fantastic standard.
Every joke was laugh out loud funny. Nothing fell flat, and the theater seemed like a happy family laughing together. I've never experienced a movie this gut-wrenchingly funny.
The plot is as hilarious as it is clever. The entire satire on how news works was great albeit predictable.
The characters are what you'd expect with some stellar additions.
The user score makes me question what film these other people saw because not one person I saw it with was anything below blown away...… Full Review »
