This was very clever and something I have found only Will Ferell is able to do. I believe he is the only zany actor out there now that Jim Carrey has left it behind for more serious acting. I can't... Read morereally say what it was that made it funny, although when you see the bloopers and deleted scenes you realise just how much was just done on a spur of the moment. Also watch out for the numerous cameo appearances all the way through.
His news is bigger than your news.
Ron Burgundy (Ferrell) is the top-rated anchorman in San Diego in the '70s. When feminism marches into the newsroom in the form of ambitious newswoman Veronica Corningstone (Applegate), 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.
