Summary: Marking the directorial debut of Adam McKay, former head writer for Saturday Night Live and founder of the Upright Citizen's Brigade, Anchorman is set during the 1970s and stars Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy, San Diego's top-rated news anchorman. While Burgundy is outwardly willing to adjust to the idea of females in the workplace -- even outside of secretarial positions -- he certainly doesn't want his own job challenged. Keeping that in mind, it's no wonder that the arrival of Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), an aspiring newswoman, is, in Ron's eyes, not the studio's most welcome addition. After Veronica pays her dues covering so-called female-oriented fluff pieces (think cat fashion shows and cooking segments), the ambitious Veronica sets her eyes on the news desk; more specifically, on Ron's seat behind it. Not unpredictably, Ron doesn't take the threat lightly, and it isn't long before the rival newscasters are engaged in a very personal battle of the sexes. Anchorman was co-written by Ferrell, and features supporting performances from David Koechner, Steve Carrell, Paul Rudd, Tara Subkoff, and Maya Rudolph. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

Perry Seibert

Fans of Will Ferrell argue that his relentless commitment to his characters is what makes him a special comedic talent. The downside of this intense commitment is that his characters often lack a connection to reality. His characters in Old School and Elf live in a world of their own and the comedy comes from those characters' inability to acknowledge life as average people live it. Anchorman continues this structure and gives Ferrell plenty of opportunities to engage in the kind of bizarre behavior and surreal non sequiturs on which he has built his following. The film is full of supporting characters who are basically pale versions of Ferrell's benignly egomaniacal Ron Burgundy. There is just one style of comedy on display throughout the film, and it is a type of comedy that does not allow the film to have any resonance outside of the world it creates. Ferrell does not commit to the character so much as he commits to a comic construct that he knows is funny. Instead of becoming the character, his intensity is a novel way of allowing himself to comment on the character. Therefore it becomes impossible for anything close to a three-dimensional person to develop. While Anchorman certainly offers ingenious moments of surreal comedy (especially whenever Steve Carell opens his mouth), the lack of any reality keeps the film from offering anything other than fleeting laughs. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
