I'll get this out of the way immediately, this is not a film that will appeal to everyone. It is what could be only described as a 'marmite' film. Some will adore its comic irreverence, and some will quite frankly 'not get it'. To me personally this is my favourite comedy of all time, and quite possibly my favourite film in general. I will attempt to not use any of the classic quotations from this film as it will spoil the brilliance of hearing them for the first time.

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.

First off, Will Ferrell has to be number 1 in my all time favourite actors (including ben stiller, tom hanks and Steve Martin). He is hilarious and i adore all of his movies hes starred or cameo'd in.
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.

This film is by far the best since Smokey and the Bandit 2. Will Ferrell is the new and improved Jim Carrey (although they've probably been around the same amount of time).
"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!"

but in an excellent way. the anti feminist plot is asking for hilarity. i thought this was the funniest movie in the last 10 years. after dumb and dumber. it is filled with lovable characters like brick. steve (bruce almighty) carell. the most random bloke you will ever witness. he is the funniest character by far but what makes the film so good is that will ferrell plays an excellent part of a big headed anchorman. even baxter the dog is brilliant. this film is sheer class and i will watch it again and again. the cheesy one liners, the street fights, and the slapstick humour is all i would want in pure comedy. well worth the money i paid for the cinema. the cameos from ben stiller, luke wilson, vince vaughn, tim robbins and jack black made it even more worth while.

I watched this at the cinema a few days after watching Dodgeball and was originally disappointed by it in comparison.

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.

:-)
