Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

Will Ferrell features in probably his best film to date.  He’s known for writing and starring in a wide range of hit movies and why?  Because he’s hilarious.  Not all of his films would get a Comedy Simon 5 star rating but this one is one of the best comedy films ever made.  It is the usual whacky stuff combined with some awkward moments and some of the best quotes from comedy films this century.

A strong cast includes Steve Carrell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate and many more who completely nail their roles.

The story of a hugely successful anchorman from a bygone era who goes through ups and downs, love and loss and completely over-reacts to everything along the way.  Is it a feminist statement?  Is it a poke at celebrity status?  We don’t care about underlying messages and moral lessons here – all we know is this is hilarious.

If you haven’t seen it then see it today – you will not regret it.
