Will Ferrell is Ron Burgundy, a top-rated 1970's San Diego anchorman who believes women have a place in the newsroom - as long as they stick to covering fashion shows or late-breaking cooking stories. So when Ron is told he'll be working with a bright young newswoman (Christina Applegate) who's beautiful, ambitious and smart enough to be more than eye candy, it's not just a clash of two TV people with really great hair - it's war! Filled with wicked wit and slapstick humour, Anchorman is the year's most wildly irreverent, must-see comedy hit!
Over the Top & Boring
- Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy review by Chris Barnes
I theory this film could be good but its not for the simple reason that its not funny, it far to over the top and the jokes are boring and sad. It may suit others but for me it was a bit boring.

One of the best comedies ever
- Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy review by DG
I first saw Will Ferrell in Zoolander, his style is totally over the top if you like this sort of style then this is the movie for you.The whole film is a total piss tke of the news corporations in the 1970's with its male dominated news rooms.I don't know what film the other reviewers were watching but I found myself actually crying with laughter at some points.Its one of those films that if you like his style its for you, if not.Avoid

- Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy review by Leasa Clarke
I am not sure how anyone can find this film UNFUNNY! True that some of the humour is quite outlandish and random but if you like other Will Ferrell, Steve Catrell Films such as '40 year old virgin' or ' Blades of glory' you will absolutely LOVE this. Set in a 70's News room, the film makes fun of the hyped up stardom obtained by Ron Burgandy - the local anchorman! There are some absolutely hilarious moments in this like a group comedy rendition of 'Afternoon delight' which had me rolling off the Settee straight to the replay button of my remote. I think men seem to 'get' this film more than women as quite often the humour can be rather random.
