Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Paul Rudd, Maya Rudolph, Vince Vaughn, Fred Willard; Director: Adam McKay; Author: Will Ferrell, Adam McKay; Release Date Wide: 07/09/2004; Runtime (in minutes): 91; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: Dreamworks Distribution L.L.C.

Ron, a talking stooge, will read whatever is placed in front of him, and he treats his own brain, too, as a kind of TelePrompTer. Will Ferrell does a variation on his specialty: the completely unjustified egomaniac. There are a few laughs, but Ron is a little too derivative – he’s Ted Baxter with a touch of Wild and Crazy Guy
