"Anchorman" is a movie I have seemed to have unintentionally put off seeing for years. For the last few years, whenever I told anyone that I hadn't seen it, they would be shocked. I finally got around to seeing the movie, and I enjoyed it as a silly comedy. I don't think it is among my favorites in the genre, but it was definitely a fun movie. I think it mostly works because it knows it's meant to be over the top due to its satirical nature and has hilarious characters. I think where its most lacking is its story. To me, there really isn't much interesting going on in the story here. However, I think, for the most part, the characters and consistently funny moments make up for what it lacks in its storyline.

A Solar Car team classic. We quoted this movie wayyyy too many times in Australia
"So hot... black [team shirts] was a baad choice!"

A perfect comedy. Filled with memorable characters, memorable quotes. This movie had me nonstop laughing. I was at times crying at how much I was laughing. Will Ferrell is Ron Burgundy, a fantastic performance. The writing is great

Don't waste your time with this awful, cringe-worthy movie. Don't let the likes of Paul Rudd, Steve Carrell ad will Ferrel trick you. DONT WATCH THIS

Upon its release, it didn't get rave reviews, but like Animal House its splendor was not going to be hidden by critics in ivory towers. This movie is rife with childish machismo and hilarious one-liners that never stop landing and has carved itself a nice little niche for its place in comedy history.

Over the top and silly but fun nonetheless

It doesn't seem like an actual movie-you can't really take it seriously; instead, it seems like a series of SNL sketches stitched together

While it doesn't really have a well defined plot and feels more like a series of sketches, this turns out not to be a problem, since most of these isolated moments are pretty funny and the excellent cast (including some welcome cameos) nails it with their mostly improvised lines.

Imagine slowly dying of a horrific bowel cancer. I can assure you it would be a lot funnier than this awful film and considerable less painful than having to sit through it.

This is a great film starring the hilarious Will Ferrell who plays Ron Burgandy the manly news anchor broadcasting live from the 1970s San Diego. The film looks great and the recreation to a time gone by is incredibly accurate. Of course it is the performances that will have you in splits and everyone from Paul Rudd to Steve Carrell is outstanding, as is Christina Applegate.

Anchorman is perhaps the best film Will Ferrell has ever starred in. The comedy is funny and fast-acting. The story line is one that keeps viewers interested, but most importantly allows for comedic freedom. 5/5 stars

Will Ferrell is one of the unfunniest and most overrated comedians in Hollywood. If you disagree, you'll love this abysmal 'satire' of TV news and outdated male childishness. Even genuinely gifted comics like Fred Willard, Paul Rudd and Steve Carell can't save this turkey. Leaden.

Anchorman is one of those comedy's that I call stupid comedy's. This doesn't mean it is bad, but you have to be in the right mood for it. The comedy was a mixed bag for me. Most of the time it was pretty good but sometimes it fell flat and sometime the comedy got too stupid that it was no longer funny. The cast is great and everyone gives a good performance, however the plot of the movie is uninteresting and a little generic I felt. My other complaint was the the film did feel a little long. Overall it is fine and watchable.

One of my all time favorite comedies that no matter when or how much I watch it I still love it. The cast is amazing and they all put their all to make every line hilarious. If you haven't seen it go watch it right now!!

Overrated and bloated attempt at a workplace comedy.
