Anchor-Blogger: The "Legend" of Unreasonable Man

I saw Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy over the weekend. It was very funny, but weird in a lot of ways. It has, by far, the most comedy actors I have ever seen in one movie. Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn, Steve Carell (formerly of the Daily Show), Fred Willard, Ben Stiller, a short appearance by Jack Black... heck, it even has Tim Robbins (who isn't so much a comedy actor, but he can be funny in certain situations).

The other two things I loved about the movie where the over-the-top fake character names (besides the title character there's Veronica Corningstone, Wes Mantooth, Champ Kind, Brian Fantana, Garth Holliday, and my favorite, Brick Tamlin, who was the funniest character in the movie) and the wonderfully terrible '70s clothing including shortie ties, polyester leisure suits, and the white pants/colored socks/white loafers combinations which were hysterical.

It would be difficult to describe this movie, other than to say "it's funny," because it is very weird at a few points (for those of you who've seen it, I'm thinking of the "rumble" and the Kodiak bears), but very, very funny. If you like Will Ferrell type humor, you will not be disappointed.
