Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy
Wednesday, 9go!, 8.30pm, M (2004)
We now cross over to groovy 1970s San Diego for this quirky fir st feature from director Adam McKay (Step Brothers, Talladega Nights). In an era where the hair was bad and the clothes were invariably beige, Will Ferrell, in career-best form, picks up the title role of Channel 4’s suave and seedy news mainstay whose “men’s club” is threatened by fledgling newswoman Veronica (Christina Applegate). Jealousy soon becomes war and all-out sleaze as he TV crew embarks on a mission to woo the new recruit. With support from Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, Vince Vaughn, Jack Black, Ben Stiller and Tim Robbins, well, it’s kind of a big deal. Tune in.
