Anchorman: Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)

For those of us who loved Will Ferrell on SNL, it's been an absolute joy to watch his ascention to the silver screen. This tale of a San Diego television anchorman in the sexist 70's who falls in love with the first female anchor...well, as they say, the devil is in the details, folks. "Take me to pleasure town!"  While uneven and crude, "Anchorman" is also genuinely anarchic, and in a frat-boy kinda way, an absolute hoot.  For Ferrell fans, probably an A-.  For more stable humans, probably a C+.
