Will Ferrell is superb as Ron Burgundy, an egocentric legend of TV's nightly news who could only have existed in the 1970s.

Hotshot television anchorman Ron Burgundy welcomes upstart reporter Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) into the male-dominated world of 1970s broadcast news - that is, until the talented female journalist begins to outshine Burgundy on air. Soon he grows jealous, and begins a bitter feud with her.

Supporting Ferrell and Applegate, Paul Rudd is clearly having a lot of fun as Brian Fantana, another crass newscaster, with Steve Carell somehow managing to keep a straight face as Brick Tamland (the names are all great), a goofy weatherman (who, the closing voiceover tells us, goes on to work for the Bush administration).

There's a real sense that everyone in Anchorman is having a great time, and that’s exactly how we want you to feel watching it. You stay classy, St Albans!
