Many years ago, a teenage girl got pregnant, and due to social pressures, moved into a convent to give birth out of the public eye. Three years later, the convent sold her son to a family in America, and she agreed to never try to contact the boy.

In later life, she met a journalist who agreed to help her track down her son, unaware that he was also searching for her, with some surprises of his own.

This sequel takes place about 10 years after the original, and the storyline is pretty similar. Ron’s wife gets offered a top job, which he objects to, and this eventually leads to their divorce. He accepts a 2 AM gig and sets about doing the news his way again, roping in his buddies from the first movie. In between all of this, he is trying to get his wife back while dealing her the new man in her life. Expect plenty of crude humour.

Cast: Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Christina Applegate, Dylan Baker, Meagan Good
