Not necessarily the news

“Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” — the sequel to the 2004 comedy that introduced Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), the fatuous, substance-free news reader — possesses all of the boneheaded gags and inspired lunacy of the original, as well as some dull material. But buried inside this grab bag of hits and misses is a pretty good point about the descent of TV news into a miasma of 24 /7 speculation, fluff and hype. Considering the improvisatory talents — even genius — of Ferrell and his co-stars, it’s no surprise that laughs abound. The Blu-ray (Paramount, $40; no extras on DVD, $30) includes longer R-rated and unrated versions, commentary and more than 90 minutes of deleted scenes.
