“Anchorman” Ron Burgundy and his band of merry broadcasters are back in theaters…

Is Anchorman 2 the most important film of 2013?

“Anchorman 2″ is fun & silly and it’s gotten some pretty decent ratings.  But could it actually be the “most important” film of the year?

Reason.tv’s Nick Gillespie makes a good case with 3 key reasons:

1. It Foregrounds Media Cliches and Pat Formulas.

2. It (de)humanizes the Production of “News.”

3. It Eviscerates the Media’a Hero Complex
