4.0 out of 5 stars Hurrah!, 24 Jan 2006
As soon as I heard there was a new Richard Cheese album, I ordered it and played it as soon as it arrived. In some aspects, the CD matches up to its predecessors (the cover of Metallica's 'Enter Sandman' which is interspersed with moments from the song 'Mr Sandman', or the way Alanis Morissette's angsty 'You Oughta Know' opens with the swelling sounds of a love song) but in other areas I wasn't so impressed, namely the dig at Michael Jackson.

I watched this for the second time recently, having failed to appreciate it when I originally saw it. The film itself would be best described, in a nutshell, as a Zoolander for the newscasting world, paying homage to those 1970s studs that were anchormen.
I think enough people have waxed lyrical about the wonder that is Will Ferrell - for me, the comedian-turned-actor that makes the film is Steve Carrell who has some of the funniest lines in the whole film: the kind of lines that leave you reeling, thinking, "Huh?!" but laughing nonetheless. Paul Rudd gives a strong performance too and the cameos from the rest of the Frat Pack (Vince Vaughn as the rival anchorman, Ben Stiller as the… Read more
