"Anchorman"- Best Film of All Times?


So, so, so funny. I don't want to do a stupid movie review on this, cos intellectualizing it would make it dumb. Let's put it this way- Will Ferrell actually said this to female co-star Christina Applegate:

"I'm going to punch you in the ovaries. A real haymaker in your baby-maker."

Steve Carell was predictably great, David Koechner was perfect as the sportscaster, and amazingly enough, Paul Rudd somehow nailed late 70's pig headed machismo. All were hilarious as the news team, as were the cute cameos. It was fun seeing Luke Wilson- let's be honest though... he's not really funny. Seems like a great guy. Just not that funny.

And Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn and Tim Robbins- all included in the killer "Gangs of New York" spoof. But EASILY the best cameo... Jack Black. He said "Broseph." He drop kicked a dog. He is... the man.

And in case I forgot to mention- Will Ferrell is a genius and I can't wait to see all the movies he's going to make.
