I have a real problem with contemporary american comedy; Adam Sandler, Jim Carey, Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell. NONE of them make me laugh. At all. This movie wasn't offensive or obnoxious or even inane in the same way as a lot of these kind of modern comedies are, and I did see what it was trying to do. But it didn't make me laugh. Not even once.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy review

A famous San Diego news anchorman Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) works for KVWN-TV Channel 4 Evening News with his team: the frank Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), sportscaster tough and loud Champion "Champ" Kind (David Koechner), and mentally retarded chief meteorologist Brick Tamland (Steve Carell). Network boss Ed Harken (Fred Willard), hires Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), which causes envy and commotion since there has never been a female news caster in 1975. Cameos from Tim Robbins, Ben Stiller, Luke Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Jack Black and Seth Rogen were a treat. Only aspects of the film that bothered this reviewer are its ludicrous scenes such as the lack of blood when Wilson's arms decapitated, pushing a woman in a bear pit, grown men fighting over ratings and Burgundy beati...

"I don't know what we're yelling about!"

Because I'm easily entertained, I found parts of Anchorman to be entertaining, but for the most part, the movie was really poor.

The story for Anchorman was really stupid, almost lacking, but some of the jokes kept me entertained. Some of the jokes, however, were old before they said them. "I am lamp" is a great example of that. However, when Steve Carell's character would say something, or yell, I would find myself laughing, maybe just a little.

The characters, for the most part, were pretty stupid. I didn't like Ron Burgundy, and the other characters were only reacting to him. The only character I really laughed at, as I said before, was Steve Carell's.

For the most part, Anchorman wasn't even worth watching, even for the little jokes that I liked.

Not a very funny movie

"Ron Burgundy" (Will Ferrell) is the most popular news anchorman in 1970s San Diego, despite being an immature bafoon. His career is jeopardized when the station hires an attractive female reporter (Christina Applegate) who wants to be the first female anchorperson.

This movie is not as funny as the TV promos lead you to believe. Although it does have some funny moments, but not enough to make it a good comedy. The comedy bits that do make you laugh will make you giggle, but nothing more.

The cast itself is fair, but are one-dementional for the most part. The best defined are those played by Applegate and Ferrell.

The performances, for the most part aren't that good as a whole -- with exception to Applegate, and Ferrell. In my opinion, Applegate was the best of the performers ...
