The Post-Gazette reviews movies from a family perspective:

'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues'

Rated: PG-13.

Suitable for: 12 and up.

What you should know: Will Ferrell's TV anchorman Ron Burgundy, a male chauvinist of the highest order, takes on a new challenge with the start-up of a 24-hour news channel in 1980. It's a silly homage that will have many laughing out loud and a few just shaking their heads. Much depends on one's opinion of the first "Anchorman" film.

Language: Some obscenities and Ron Burgundy's very colorful turns of phase.

Sexual situations and nudity: Is there a Will Ferrell movie where he doesn't remove his clothing? A bedroom scene, plus a make-out session between two characters in a laundromat.

Drug or alcohol use: Drinks are imbibed, and there's a joke about using crack while on the air.

Violence/scary situations: A gang fight played for laughs, some cartoony dismemberment, an encounter with a shark and. of course, all those '80s hairstyles and mustaches.
