ANCHORMAN 2 - THE LEGEND CONTINUES is an revised and extended version of a film previously rated 15. The film is a comedy sequel, set in the 1980s, in which newsreader Ron Burgundy reassembles his old team at a 24 hour news station. It is rated 15 for strong language, sex references and drug use.

This version of the film contains five uses of strong language (four uses of 'f**k' and one use of 'motherf**ker').

There are infrequent strong visual and verbal sex references, including a scene in which a man graphically explains different types of condoms, and a scene in which a man explains in detail how to perform oral sex on a woman. The film also contains frequent comic sex references of a less detailed nature.

There is a scene in which men are seen smoking crack, which is comically presented as part of a news investigation. However, the men doing the smoking are subsequently arrested. There are also verbal references to drug use. There are occasional scenes showing adults drinking alcohol and a scene in which a man has a cigar in his mouth.

The film contains some milder bad language, including uses of 'bitch', 'son of a bitch', 'piss', 'shit', 'bloody', 'bullshit', 'bugger', 'crap', 'dick', 'ass', 'Christ', 'hell', 'damn', 'goddamn', and 'Jesus'. There is also some discriminatory language and behavior, all of which is clearly disapproved of. In one scene, rival news teams engage in a comic mock battle with makeshift weapons. This includes some heavy blows, as well as comic sight of an arm being severed and an eyeball landing on a hockey stick. There is also a scene in which Ron is depressed and attempts to hang himself. The attempt fails and there is no detail.

No-one younger than 15 may see a 15 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger than 15 may rent or buy a 15 rated video or DVD.
