2004 M Contains sexual references.

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.

Anchorman is definitely what I could see as being one of those ‘love it or hate it’ movies. The humour is often clever in that it's completely inane, which is fine by me. I guess the best comparison... Read more

I was looking forward to this, but it was awful. The most unbelievable facet of the storyline was the romance between the blonde woman and the main git. Give me a break. This movie would've been funny... Read more

Got through it but just. The height of silly, but not in the clever way. A few laughs here and there. The sort of movie you keep hoping might get better!

Tries hard to show the behind the scenes of TV news broadcasting - as most of us are not privy to what goes on it is well worth a watch.

I had heard this was a comedy classic. What a disappointment. Not even slightly amusing - dire. Unless you are a fan of asinine adolescent humour - avoid.
