ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND OF RON BURGUNDY (2004) ****

 

Will Ferrell stars in the title role as a hard drinking, none too bright newscaster in 70’s San Diego whose masculinity is threatened by the presence of a female anchor (Christina Applegate), who he of course, falls in love with.  Ferrell is good, but his news team (Paul Rudd, David Koechtner, and Steve Carell) and a slew of celebrity cameos (Vince Vaughn, Luke Wilson, Jack Black, Tim Robbins and Ben Stiller) steal the show.  Director Adam McKay used to be the head writer on Saturday Night Live.
