Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

Well the holidays have started for me here from today and I started the first day by watching this flick Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. The movie was hilarious and I enjoyed every bit of it. I am a huge fan of Will Ferrell and this flick is one of his best movies.

Will Ferrell stars as Ron Burgundy who is San Diego's top rated anchorman in the male dominated broadcasting of the 1970's. His Channel 4 News team comprises of Champ Kind, the sports reporter played by David Koechner, Brian Fantana, the video reporter played by Paul Rudd and Brick Tamland, the dumb wheaterman played by Steve Carell. Together the four of them are the No.1 news team in San Diego and they go around bragging about it.

This is about to change when a new attractive female employee joins the Channel 4 News team, Veronica Corningstone played by Christina Applegate. Soon Burgundy and Veronica fall in love. One day a misadventure by Burgundy results in Veronica's pinch-hitting chance to anchor the evening news and she scores it big time. The remaining plot is about Ron's revenge and Veronica's counterattacks.

There are some really funny scenes like the scene where all the news teams of the competing stations led by Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller and Tim Robbins battle it out with each other. Guys when you watch this flick dont forget to watch the outtakes as the end credits role, especially Ferrell's last comment on what the movie really is.

In the end this is a flick which you can watch with your buddies and have a blast laughing.

My Rating: 3.5/5
