Episode 41: Anchorman: the Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)

I’m Ted Baxter; here now, the news.  Flawless impression, right? This is one of my Guilty Pleasures, the Will Ferrell comedy “Anchorman.”  Yes it’s juvenile and as lowbrow as you can get without being a neckbeard but it makes me laugh and the cast is amazing, as are the cameos.  Seriously, how many movies are there that have appearances by Tim Robbins, Danny Trejo, and Jack Black. Oh. Really? That many? Huh.  I had no idea.  Well, anyway, this one is a lot of dopey fun and it’s the movie that spawned a thousand memes (“Well, that escalated quickly!” “I love lamp.”) So slap on some Sex Panther, put on some jazz flute and dust off your many leather-bound books as we tackle the movie that asks the question “Why even bother trying to be classy?”

  1. I just don’t find Will Farrel funny at all, I have yet to sit through even one movie of his. When I worked with Mike, I did have Dan Dare the man from nowhere eyebrows, however.

    1. Well, you and I agree on this one, but that’s just us. Dan Dare. Man, I would not have guessed he’d show up in anything American! I have a book or two of that stuff but it’s pure British comics gold. Don’t think it’s ever been brought over here.
