Ron Burgundy is San Diego's top rated newsman in the male dominated broadcasting of the 1970's, but that's all about to change when a new female employee with ambition to burn arrives in his office.
Will Farrell followed up his star-making vehicle Elf, which matched his fine-tuned comic obliviousness to a sweet sincerity, with a more arrogant variation on the same character: Ron Burgundy, a macho, narcissistic news anchor from the 1970s. Along with his news posse--roving reporter Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd, Clueless), sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner), and dim-bulb weatherman Brick Tamland (Steve Carell, Bruce Almighty)--Burgundy rules the roost in San Diego, fawned upon by groupies and supported by a weary producer (Fred Willard, Best In Show) who tolerates Burgundy's ego because of good ratings. But when Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate, View from the Top) arrives with ambitions to become an anchor herself, she threatens the male-dominated newsroom. Anchorman has plenty of funny material, but it's as if Farrell couldn't decide what he really wanted to mock, and so took smart-ass cracks at everything in sight. Still, there are moments of inspired delirium. --Bret Fetzer

The story is set in a sexist news studio in San Diego, America. The lead anchor Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) falls for a woman at a party, and she incredibly, to Ron, rejects his not so subtle advances. The next day that very woman, Veronica Corningstone is appointed as a journalist in their very newsroom. Cue brilliant pick-up attempts, witty one liners, emotional breakdowns and scenes that don't leave the mind for weeks. Brick is the lovable fool, who interrupts with odd - yet hilarious - lines at random parts of the movie, he is the weatherman. The sports commentator Champ Kind, is a more roguish persona, who suffers a mental breakdown after Ron decides to go on a date with Veronica instead of attending their monthly pancake breakfast. Yes it's that irrelevant. Bryan Fantana is the 'man on the scene' and is the typical ladies man. All the acting in this film deserves to be noted, they all convey the different personalities of the charchters superbly and somehow without laughing.
All in all I thoroughly recommend this film to anyone with an irrelevant humour or in need of something up-lifting, which this film oddly fulfils. A cult classic in the form of Zoolander. Do watch out for the battle scene and a cameo from Jack Black. Pure comic brilliance.
Now, Anchorman. I was highly anticipating this movie, after seeing 'Elf'(my second favourite all time film) and ferrells capability to make me laugh my socks off, i couldnt wait until ferrels latest outing. I wont go on with the story but this movie is superb. The acting is first class- from Ferrell and Christina Applegate-who plays Ferrell's rival.
Ths story is clever and the jokes are fast paced, although its not as funny as ELF.
With that aside- this is great and has a lots of cameos ranging from Ben Stiller (YESSS) Vince Vaughn, Tim Robbins,Luke Wilson and Jack Black- who all take part in some of the funniest scenes in the film. I'm flaberghasted about how this didnt really do well with critics and in the cinema.
But this is still a must buy for all ferrell fans and people who want to be highly entertained. BRILLIANT.
I do feel, however, that this type of humour might not appeal to everyone, and agree with a previous review that it's like Marmite, you either love it or hate it- I can't see any middle ground.
To summarize, if you like films like Old School, Dodgeball or American Pie, or programs like Little Britain or Trigger Happy TV, I would heartily recommend you give Anchorman a watch.
However after buying it on dvd and re-watching it, over and over again (far more times than my Dodgeball dvd) I've realised what a real gem of film this is.
The script, characters and everything else in this movie is brilliant, and as mentioned earlier this film is soooo wacthable especially considering the amount of subtle jokes, background activities and cameos.
The extras on the disc are equally as funny and the commentary is hilarious.
Buy this film, if you don't like it the first time round give it a second chance before bad-mouthing it.
"Ron Burgundy has a voice that could make a Wolverine purr and suits so fine he makes Sinatara look like a hobo!" The film is filled with brilliant and quotable material such as "I have many leather bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany" - That's a chat up line from the legendary news anchor!
Best character in the film has to be "Channel 4's man on the street" Brian Fantana! Brian has a wonderful array of aftershaves which prompts RB to ask - "What cologne you gonna go with? No wait, let me guess - London Gentlemen or blackbeards delight?"
I love this film so much it gets better everytime you watch it. How many people do you know that can read the news AND play Jazz flute???
If you like this, you'll also enjoy the best of Saturday night live with Will Ferrell. Hilarity guarenteed.
I'll leave you with this - "I WANNA BE ON YOU!"
