Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy 1.0 stars

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy movie poster

Promising comic premise -- a swinging single San Diego newsman in the Seventies, and his personal attraction but professional resistance to a female colleague -- subjected to a strategy of anything-for-a-laugh: wild exaggeration, improbability, impossibility, fantasy, absurdity, ribaldry, animal abuse, cartoon interlude, musical numbers, celebrity cameos (Vince Vaughn, Jack Black, Luke Wilson, Tim Robbins, Ben Stiller). There are indeed some laughs, but at a poor rate of return for the effort. Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Fred Willard; directed by Adam McKay. 2004.

Great movie, but if I hear one more person say "Keep it classy, San Diego" I'm gonna pop off.
