Anchorman: The legend of Ron Burgundy (directed and written by Adam McKay and Will Ferrell)

In 1970s San Diego, journalism was a well respected profession and people actually cared about what they saw on TV. And the top rated anchorman in the city was Ron Burgundy. And his news team was equally as good as he was. Professional jock and former professional baseball player Champ Kind handled the sports, the curiously dim witted Brick Tamland handled the weather, and ladies' man Brian Fantana handled the on-field reporting. However, the TV station Burgundy works for has embraced diversity and hired a beautiful new female anchor named Veronica Corningstone. While Ron Burgundy and the rest of the news team enjoys fighting with competitors, drinking, and flirting with the ladies, Veronica quietly climbs her way to the top.

Starring: Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Fred Willard, Kathryn Hahn, Fred Armisen, Seth Rogen, Judd Apatow, Jack Black, Luke Wilson, Ben Stiller, Tim Robbins, Jerry Stiller, Vince Vaughn

Why I loved this film: This is Will Ferrel up to his usual shenanigans. I laughed the entire way through the movie. However, do not expect a super plot or a twist, it is a simple comedy. But you are bound to laugh so hard that you will not be able to breathe. This movie also features the greatest comedy stars teaming up together to form a perfect icing on a pretty good cake!
