Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Ron Burgundy is the top-rated anchorman in San Diego in the 1970s. When feminism marches into the newsroom in the form of ambitious newswoman Veronica Corningstone, Ron is willing to play along at first--as long as Veronica stays in her place, covering cat fashion shows, cooking, and other "female" interests. But when Veronica refuses to settle for being eye candy and steps behind the news desk, it's more than a battle between two perfectly coiffed anchor-persons--it's war.

Does make you laugh even if you hate yourself for doing so. A creation of former Saturday Night Live colleagues, the comedy plays like an extended skit with bits of improvisation and several slightly extended sequences.

To discover why movie fans are screaming for more Will Ferrell, and to savor the work of improv wizards like Carell, go see Anchorman.

There's no sense to the scene in which the boys get together for a close-harmony rendition of Afternoon Delight -- just pure pleasure.
