Review: In 'Anchorman 2,' the classy-or-not gags continue
LATimes - about 3 years
Will Ferrell returns as Ron Burgundy in 'Anchorman 2,' which has more silly moments than it can handle well, but has fun catching up with Steve Carell, Christina Applegate and Paul Rudd's roles. Every time I see Ron Burgundy, a.k.a. Will Ferrell, hawking Dodge Durangos on TV — which seems like a million times a day — what strikes me is how brilliant the "Anchorman" conceit is in small bits. The carefully manicured hair, the flashy suits, all just window dressing for that marvelously bloated ego, the absurd made irresistible in 60-second increments.

Why Thanksgiving Is Never As Good As It Was on <i>Friends</i>
Huffington Post - over 3 years
It's that time of year, friends. A time to give thanks, gobble 'til you wobble and celebrate with friends and family. For you, Thanksgiving might be synonymous with epic eating, festive frenzies and obligatory reunions. For me, the holiday evokes a type of nostalgia that only people who spent one night a week between 1994 and 2004 glued to an NBC sitcom can identify with. It makes me miss my Friends. Chandler, Joey, Monica, Phoebe, Rachel and Ross spent 10 years making us laugh, cry and occasionally laugh so hard we cried. They dedicated a decade to navigating young adult life in the big city, and we watched all the while, captivated by heartbreak, big breaks, ups, downs and everything in between. Each and every year, without fail, they also gave us unrealistic expectations for Thanksgiving. First and foremost, the cast of characters simply doesn't match up. Sure, your family may be dysfunctional enough to include a King of sarcasm, village idiot and neurotic fat-girl-slim. But n ...
