Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

"I'm Ron Burgundy?"... Judd Apatow-produced comedy following Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) as San Diego's top rating news anchor in the male dominated world of 1970's broadcasting.

Also stars Steve Carell ("I love lamp") and Paul Rudd ("Why don't you sit this next one out, stop talking for a while").

This is director Adam McKay's first film. His collaborations with Will Ferrell continued with Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Step Brothers and The Other Guys.

Certainly the silliest comedy of the year, but mainly in a good way. Not quite as inspired as Stiller's Dodgeball, but if it were any more manic you'd have to put it on Ritalin.

Will Ferrell is superb as Ron Burgundy, an egocentric legend of TV's nightly news who could only have existed in the 1970s.

...consistently ridiculous and hysterical, despite its messy mid-movie abandonment of the subject it sets out to parody.

What takes the whole thing pleasurably over the top, turning a goof into a total gas, is the film's pitch-perfect absurdist comedy and warmth.

It is not as maniacally uninhibited as Old School or as dementedly lovable as Elf, but its cheerful dumbness is hard to resist.

That he can make his anchorman chauvinistic, deluded and ridiculous but still manage to give him some humanity is testimony to Ferrell's comic talents.

Ferrell has seized on a clever concept rife with possibilities -- namely, women breaking the glass ceiling in male-dominated TV news during the '70s -- and smartly surrounded himself with a topnotch cast.
