Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
Usually dispatched within 24 hours
Goofball comedy directed by former Saturday Night Live writer Adam McKay. Will Ferrell stars as Ron Burgundy, a top-rated 1970s San Diego anchorman who believes women have a place in the newsroom - so long as they stick to covering fashion shows or late-breaking cooking news, that is. So when Ron is told he'll be working with a bright young newswoman (Christina Applegate) who's beautiful, ambitious, and intelligent enough to be more than eye candy, it's not just a clash of two TV-people with really great hair: it's war...

Egos clash as Ron Burgundy, a chauvinistic top-rated 1970s anchorman, is told that he'll be working with a new partner... a beautiful, but brutally ambitious, young newswoman.
British audiences are finally waking up to the fact that Will Ferrell is one of the funniest men alive. He’s been a star in the States for going on ten years now, thanks largely to his role on cult TV sketch show Saturday Night Live. But we had to wait for his movie career to kick off before we got a taste of that crazy Ferrell magic for ourselves. Here’s a guy who steals every film he’s in, no matter the size of his part, from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back to Zoolander and Old School, though it was his first starring role, in Elf, that really made his name in the UK.
And Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is ten times funnier than that, a smart and silly tale of men being men in the days before equal rights spoiled everything for them forever. Ferrell plays number one San Diego anchorman (American for newsreader) Ron Burgundy, a man of deep, deep shallows with perfect hair and a stone age attitude to women that’s perfectly in keeping with the male dominated, Seventies setting.
Then along comes stunning wannabe anchorlady Veronica Corningstone (Married… With Children’s Christina Applegate) and the sparks begin to fly. Bolstered by an awesome supporting cast and a hoard of all-star cameos – Ben Stiller, Tim Robbins, Vince Vaughan, Luke Wilson and Jack Black among them – Anchorman is comedy gold.
