Anchorman 2, Take Two: Same plot, all new jokes in “Super-Sized Rated-R Version” re-release

As Will Ferrell told Jimmy Fallon last night: “Originally the movie was four hours long. We played around with the idea of splitting it into two movies. But that didn’t really work. And, so we just had a second editor working the whole time with alternative jokes. So it’s the same movie. It’s 20 minutes longer. There’s a musical number we had to cut from the original one. Little treats like that. And it will be out for a week.”
