About Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy
Will Ferrell stars as Ron Burgundy, a TV news anchorman in San Diego, 1977. With huge hair and a porn-star moustache, he is a chauvinist egomaniac, exuding machismo through the airwaves. But an ambitious, feminist reporter (Christina Applegate) arrives and threatens to oust him from his throne. Ferrell is brilliant as the preening lord of prime time, with a host of quotable catchphrases and an ongoing feud with rival Wes Mantooth (Vince Vaughn). The rest of the film is rather carried by his star power, and it dips at the end, but there's enough laughs to keep it near the top of the ratings.
