Anchorman : The Legend of Ron Burgundy
When Anchorman:The Legend of Ron Burgundy first came out, I avoided it, because the trailers made it look so sexist. When Step Brothers came out, people were waxing poetic for classic Will Ferrell comedic acting. I got just that from Anchorman. Not only from Ferrell, but Christina Applegate (who sweetly gave me an autograph after seeing her in Sweet Charity on Broadway), Steve Carell, Vince Vaughn, Fred Willard and Paul Rudd turned in strong performances. Cool cameo appearances made this fun to watch. After seeing it, I realize it was not sexist, but funny, clever, smart, and, did I mention, funny? Well written and executed, I'm probably one of the last people on the planet to see this one. Enjoy!
