An­chor­man: The Leg­end Of Ron Bur­gundy

The Western Star - - LIFE -

Tues­day, go!, 9.30pm, M (2004)

We now cross over to groovy 1970s San Diego for this quirky first 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 the 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.
