Get FREE tickets to a preview of the eagerly-awaited Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, with a special NYCOTC giveaway. See the legendary Ron Burgundy and his bumbling buddies back in action at a special preview showing Mon., Dec. 16 NYC. Thanks to the producers and promoters of Anchorman 2, NYC on the Cheap has fifty tickets to give away. Well, actually 49, since I’m grabbing one of these freebies for myself.
The link for signing up is at the end of this posting.
Here’s the plot, although that probably doesn’t matter as much as the sight gags and laugh lines: With the 70’s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), returns to the news desk in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.” Also back for more are Ron’s co-anchor and wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), weather man Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), man on the street Brian Fontana (Paul Rudd) and sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner) – All of whom won’t make it easy to stay classy…while taking the nation’s first 24-hour news channel by storm.
FYI – in a previous life, I was an on-air reporter on Channel 7 Eyewitness News, when the anchormen were Roger Grimsby and Bill Beutel, and fellow reporters included Rosanne Scamardella, John Johnson and Bob Lape, so I can report that some of what is up there on the big screen isn’t too much of an exaggeration.
The first 50 people who sign up here will be able to download and print out passes for the screening, at 7 p.m., at AMC Lincoln Square.
