Wanted to see because everyone says this movie is so funny...... we turned it off about 1/2 way through it was so bad. Definitely not funny.

Movie Review: Anchorman

in the city of San Diego there lives a legendary news team of four men: Champ, Brick, Brian and at the lead of the famed news cast, Ron Burgundy. Living in the prime of their lives having fame, money and stable work life. Though it would not remain that way for long as a new member is being introduced to the news crew. The most upsetting news to the crew though is that the new person to be joining them is a women. While not something that would be seen as upsetting in the 21st century, it is not; seeing a woman in the news room wasn't commonplace. The news crew tried to solve their dilemma by attempting to sabotage her by preforming various pranks on Veronica, usually falling under the category of being raunchy and perverted. Though something changes in Ron something that neither his friends nor he could have expected.

Join in on one of the most renowned comedies of all time, with a famous comedy crew cast and excellent writers. If you like ridiculous comedies then this is a perfect movie for you.

Sad, sad waste of a bunch of genius comic actors. Guess I was in the minority to hate this one..

Revised - this movie had some good laugh moments and cameos. You'll enjoy it more if you have something to drink first.

This is a really funny movie. There are appearances by famous people (Danny Trejo a.k.a. Machete, Vince Vaughn, Jack Black, Ben Stiller etc.). It is a ridiculous movie, but it is really funny. This is definitely worth seeing.

Not a Will Ferrell fan, at all (I find that man incredibly unfunny, especially in his modern works), but this film is still fairly entertaining, mostly because of the supporting cast. As a feminist, I feel I should hate this film, but I don't. If nothing else, it's at least the most tolerable.

Ron Burgundy is San Diego's top rated newsman in the male dominated broadcasting of the 1970's, but that's all about to change when a new female employee with ambition to burn arrives in his office.

Brian Fantana: [about Veronica] I'll give this little cookie an hour before we're doing the no-pants dance. Time to musk up.
[opens cologne cabinet]
Ron Burgundy: Wow. Never ceases to amaze me. What cologne you gonna go with? London Gentleman, or wait. No, no, no. Hold on. Blackbeard's Delight.
Brian Fantana: No, she gets a special cologne... It's called Sex Panther by Odeon. It's illegal in nine countries... Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good.
Ron Burgundy: It's quite pungent.
Brian Fantana: Oh yeah.
Ron Burgundy: It's a formidable scent... It stings the nostrils. In a good way.
Brian Fantana: Yep.
Ron Burgundy: Brian, I'm gonna be honest with you, that smells like pure gasoline.
Brian Fantana: They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time it works, every time.
[cheesy grin]
Ron Burgundy: That doesn't make sense.
Brian Fantana: Well... Let's go see if we can make this little kitty purr.

Brian Fantana: That's the smell of desire my lady.
Veronica Corningstone: God no, it smells like, like a used diaper... filled with... Indian food. Oh, excuse me.
Brian Fantana: You know, desire smells like that to some people.
News Station Employee: [Disgusted] What is that? Smells like a turd covered in burnt hair.
