Anchorman 2 is now here, and given that those Anchorman quotes have become iconic in the almost decade since that first Will Ferrell film landed, some wondered if there would be as many fantastic quotes in Anchorman 2.
Well, as we stated in our Anchorman 2 review, that is certainly the case. Now, it may take years for them to take hold like the first film has in popular culture, but, make no mistake, the latest quotes from the anchorman who could not be more clueless will dominate pop culture.
