Two new clips from Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues prove that the comedy magic is still alive

"I'm not even mad. That's amazing."

The biggest fear when it comes to sequels is whether or not they'll live up to the magic of the original and the stakes are even higher when it comes to ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES, especially since the first film is so, well, legendary. Fortunately, in this instance, the sequel looks bang-on hilarious and each new trailer, promo, and clip has eased my worry and upped my anticipation more and more. Case in point: these two new clips, which have Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) squaring off with Jack Lime (James Marsden) and the gang having some trouble understanding "Australian."

Do you want an autograph?:

Your accent. It's rather thick:

I was really impressed with ol' James Marsden here, who shows some really nice comedic back and forth. He's dabbled in comedy before, but he seems like a great foil for Ron and his team and it's nice to see the actor getting some love. Marsden is notoriously the "screwed over" character and I like him playing the bad guy for a change. Really shows his diversity, which is also the name of an old, old wooden ship that was used during the Civil War era.

ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES opens on December 20, 2013.

Yep. I laughed

James Marsden is highly underrated as a comedy actor, IMO. He pretty much stole ENCHANTED as the prototypical Disney prince. Nice to see him getting more work.

Lol, how can you make a statement like that? There have been so many highly anticipated movies, especially sequels, that have looked amazing and then been completely and utterly mediocre. I'm not saying that Anchorman 2 won't be good, I'm just saying that the fact that you are saying that is simply a testament that they have a great marketing team and that us movie fans have very short memories for when we get screwed over.

At the moment, I think This is the End is the funniest film of the year (so far), and judging by the trailers, clips, etc. this seems like it will surpass that.

It's just all opinion though.

Agreed. I hope I'm wrong and that it is awesome! Remember when the trailers for Spiderman 3 looked good? Hahahaha.

Just two of I'm sure a ton of great comedy in this. Love how they've made James Marsden look like a ken doll.
