A rewatching of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, starring Will Ferrell.
With Will Ferrell in the lead role, it will be an excess of Will Ferrell-like humor. He mostly manages to land good roles, but preferably as a supporting role where he does not get too tiring. Still, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is one of the better films he does, and it's going on the positive side this time around.
With more knowledge of Steve Carell through The Office, it is he who has the most amusing scenes in this comedy set to a fictional TV news environment in the 1970s. But all in all, the film does not get better than average, it is simply not funny enough, but gets a little too much stuff and nonsense.
Most of the humor was below average, and it can be said that Will Ferrell is not the most funny, by far. The highlight of the film was when the crew from several different news broadcasts showed up at an industrial area, and the leaders of the various news programs were Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Luke Wilson.
Other cool things were when Jack Black appeared as an angry motorcyclist and kicked a dog off a bridge. And to see Danny Trejo as a bartender.
The quality of the humor in the film varied a lot, from quite funny scenes to scenes that were so not funny, but embarrassing to watch.
