Overview

Marking the directorial debut of Adam McKay, former head writer for Saturday Night Live and founder of the Upright Citizen's Brigade, Anchorman is set during the 1970s and stars Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy, San Diego's top-rated news anchorman. While Burgundy is outwardly willing to adjust to the idea of females in the workplace -- even outside of secretarial positions -- he certainly doesn't want his own job challenged. Keeping that in mind, it's no wonder that the arrival of Veronica Corningstone (Christina ...

Overview

Marking the directorial debut of Adam McKay, former head writer for Saturday Night Live and founder of the Upright Citizen's Brigade, Anchorman is set during the 1970s and stars Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy, San Diego's top-rated news anchorman. While Burgundy is outwardly willing to adjust to the idea of females in the workplace -- even outside of secretarial positions -- he certainly doesn't want his own job challenged. Keeping that in mind, it's no wonder that the arrival of Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), an aspiring newswoman, is, in Ron's eyes, not the studio's most welcome addition. After Veronica pays her dues covering so-called female-oriented fluff pieces (think cat fashion shows and cooking segments), the ambitious Veronica sets her eyes on the news desk; more specifically, on Ron's seat behind it. Not unpredictably, Ron doesn't take the threat lightly, and it isn't long before the rival newscasters are engaged in a very personal battle of the sexes. Anchorman was co-written by Ferrell, and features supporting performances from David Koechner, Steve Carrell, Paul Rudd, Tara Subkoff, and Maya Rudolph.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
To some people, Will Ferrell remains an acquired taste: Success in skit-comedy TV shows doesn't necessarily guarantee big-screen stardom. There are those who believe Ferrell is strictly a supporting actor and not a leading man, Elf notwithstanding. Anchorman -- one of 2004's goofiest and most entertaining comedies -- soundly refutes that notion. Set in the 1970s, when women's liberation and the sexual revolution turned the culture topsy-turvy, Anchorman chronicles the misadventures of Ron Burgundy guess who, a clueless, misogynistic TV newsreader. Ron is the toast of San Diego, adored by women and admired by men, his Neanderthal attitudes notwithstanding. But he's about to get real competition from an ambitious female reporter Christina Applegate determined to become the station's first woman anchor -- even if it means undermining Burgundy by means both fair and foul. Anchorman would not have been such a giddy delight had writer/director Adam McKay head writer on Saturday Night Live during Ferrell's tenure there simply fallen back on tired battle-of-the-sexes tropes. In fact, the film's best bits involve comedy that verges on the absurd. Ferrell's Burgundy is a walking caricature, although he seems practically normal compared to the bizarre yes-men played by Paul Rudd, David Koechner, and especially Steve Carell, who is sidesplitting as dim-bulb weatherman Brick Tamland. Vince Vaughn adds to the general hilarity as a competing channel's anchor, while Luke Wilson, Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Tim Robbins, and many other familiar faces pop up in effective cameos. The Ferrell-McKay screenplay is peppered with snappy one-liners and pop-culture references, and while nobody will ever confuse Anchorman for sophisticated humor, this movie can be counted upon to put a smile on the viewer's face and keep it there.
All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Fans of Will Ferrell argue that his relentless commitment to his characters is what makes him a special comedic talent. The downside of this intense commitment is that his characters often lack a connection to reality. His characters in Old School and Elf live in a world of their own and the comedy comes from those characters' inability to acknowledge life as average people live it. Anchorman continues this structure and gives Ferrell plenty of opportunities to engage in the kind of bizarre behavior and surreal non sequiturs on which he has built his following. The film is full of supporting characters who are basically pale versions of Ferrell's benignly egomaniacal Ron Burgundy. There is just one style of comedy on display throughout the film, and it is a type of comedy that does not allow the film to have any resonance outside of the world it creates. Ferrell does not commit to the character so much as he commits to a comic construct that he knows is funny. Instead of becoming the character, his intensity is a novel way of allowing himself to comment on the character. Therefore it becomes impossible for anything close to a three-dimensional person to develop. While Anchorman certainly offers ingenious moments of surreal comedy (especially whenever Steve Carell opens his mouth), the lack of any reality keeps the film from offering anything other than fleeting laughs.

    Anchorman

    Anchorman is a hilarious take on the 1970s when women were really starting to become powers in the workforce. This is a story about Channel 4 News anchor Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), who is used to being the man. Women want to be with him, and men want to be him. His news crew of Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Champ Kind (David Koechner), and Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) run the city and party every night. But one day, Ron is challenged in the News Room when the station hires hot news reporter Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate). Every man is outraged that the station would hire a woman to report the news. This movie was written by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. They do a great job of capturing at how the 1970s was a big movement for women in the workforce. Veronica stealing the spotlight from Ron shows that women were looked at in this decade to change things up and keep things fresh to keep people interested in whatever it is they were doing. The writers also do a great job making it funny to watch. Will Ferrell always adds his hilarious sense of humor in to keep everyone entertained. Adam McKay does a great job of making sure each character has a personality of his/her own as well as a little backstory for each main character. This is a great movie for anyone who is a big Ferrell fan, or anyone who likes movies that depict the 1970s. The movie also does a tremendous job of getting the look right for the 1970s. The costuming is everything you would hope for when watching a movie taking place in a different time. It makes you feel as if the movie was actually made during the seventies. The moustaches sported by Ron and his friend, Brian Fantana (Rudd), are very thick and stereotypical of the 1970s too. All of this makes the movie just that much more fun to watch. Another thing that makes this movie great is every actor who shows up on camera in this movie. The actors really help capture the situation they are in at every moment. Christina Applegate does a great job of playing a feminist woman who just wants respect, and isn't afraid to speak her mind when something is not just. Will Ferrell does a very good job of playing a womanizing ladies' man who is threatened by change. My personal favorite part of the movie is when Ron is trying to explain to the rest of the crew what love is. He is at a loss of words, since he is still a little confused on the topic. So to explain, he starts singing the song "Afternoon Delight" because the rest of the group knows and loves the song so much. Anchorman does a great job of entertaining anyone who puts the movie on. It's a great movie to watch with your friends, and will have you quoting nearly the whole movie after you are done watching it. The movie has done such a good job of entertaining others in the media, that some TV personalities will impersonate him or repeat lines from the movie on their shows. Will Ferrell and Adam McKay score big with another hit movie. This movie is inappropriate at times for kids under the age of 13, so younger kids should not be watching it. Anyone from ages 13 and up will find something that they enjoy about this movie. It will make older people think back to the seventies and make younger people laugh until no end. I give Anchorman five stars out of five. It was a box office hit, and for good reason.

Illegal in nine countries." "You woke the bears, why did you do that?" "Diversity is a very old wooden ship." "You know I don't speak Spanish, in English please." "I love lamp." "Agree to disagree." "The man punted Baxter." "You're a smelly pirate hooker." "why don't you go back to your home on Whore Island!" I can go on this movies is awesome!

    This movie rocked!

    If your a Will Ferrel fan, this is a must see. Anchorman is a ridiculosly funny movie that many ages will find funny. Will Ferrel plays the main character Ron Burgondy. Me and my friends are always quoting things off of this movie. I also later watched the movie again and my dad walked in and got hooked on this movie. He's not the youngest guy around and he was laughing at everything. In the Anchorman the news crew that will ferrel is apart of has this song that they sing. They made a music video out of it, called afternoon delight. Also in the movie one of the funniest sences that i think is where will ferrel talks to his dog baxter and he says that he's speaking spanish. but the dogs just barking. it's really funny. this is a must see movie.

    Anchorman is Hilarious

    I wouldn't say this was the best movie of all time, but it was definitely a must-see! All of the main characters were hilarious, especially Will Ferrell. I don't know how the cast kept a straight face in some of the scenes. This movie keeps me in stitches every time I watch it!

    A Gigantic Piece Of DooDoo

    This movie had to be the biggest piece of junk I've ever seen. It had to be done simply to mock the viewer who was stupid enough to pay to see it. Everyone in this movie or remotely associated with it should be ashamed.

    Anchorman ''ROX MY SOX OFF!!!''

    The greatest movie of all time, out of all the movies in my life, I have never laughed and cried so hard that i nearly wet my pants! It was so funny lines like ''I'm trapped in a glass cage of emotions!'' and 'I ate a giant red candle' I believe for this sort of movie you have to have a great sense of humour because it's so random it's hilarious, the director and writer i love you because you guy's must be awesome to make such a funny movie, I live in new zealand and im waiting till 23rd March when I can take home the DVD for myself, Thankyou to the Ron Burgundy crew I LOVE YOU!

    Funny but so overly TERRIBLE

    There was no point wat so ever to this movie. It was terrible acting by both Will Farrel and Christina Applegate. It did have some funny parts to it (chocolate squirl) but was quite childish. BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD okay thats enough bads. Maybe one more, BAD. If you were to watch this movie you have to be clinicly insane. BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD! If you havn't gotten the point yet THIS MOVIE STUNK!!!!!!!!!!! If anyone gives this movie a 5 star rating they are also clinicly insane and should be shot twice in the head. But thats just our opinion. So if you want to lose IQ points go ahead and watch the movie.

    Hilarious

    My girlfriends and i had this really lame teacher in junior high, and when we saw the previews for this movie, we knew we had to see it. I honsetly expected it to be one of those stupid comedies that are only funny if you're drunk or sleep deprived:not my tipe of movie(i'm more for puns or plays on words) However, this movie cracked me up! i laughed so hard in certain scenes, i couldn't breathe. The actor who plays 'Brick' you will recognize as 'Evan' from 'Bruce Almighty'-he is so incredibly funny. This movie is a must see!!!
