Amerikaanse komedie uit 2004 van regisseur Adam McKay met in de hoofdrollen Will Ferrell (Elf) als de populaire zelfingenomen nieuwspresentator (anchorman) John Burgundy, Paul Rudd als de reporter ter plaatse en Steve Carell als de weerman. Dit succesvolle nieuwsteam is zeer populair in San Diego in de jaren zeventig. Als er voor het eerst een vrouwelijke nieuwspresentator (Christina Applegate) op het toneel verschijnt, die ook nog zeer aantrekkelijk is en ambitie heeft, krijgt Burgundy het moeilijk in de concurrentiestrijd. Het verhaal is gebaseerd op een waargebeurd verhaal. Brian Webster (Apollo Movie Guide, i) is enthousiast. Hij vindt deze komedie echt grappig en Ferrell zeer goed als acteur. 'Anchorman is about as silly as comedy gets, and it works consistently. Mixing slapstick with lower key humour, McKay and Ferrell have managed to strike an almost perfect middlebrow comedy balance. Ferrell makes Burgundy as lovable as he is stupid, and the laughs come steadily throughout.'
