      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Filled with inspired silliness and quotable lines, Anchorman isn't the most consistent comedy in the world, but Will Ferrell's buffoonish central performance helps keep this portrait of a clueless newsman from going off the rails.

      Nell Minow Common Sense Media Silly comedy that's definitely not for kids Rated: 3/5 Dec 21, 2010 Full Review Anna Smith Time Out Takes a joke and runs with it -- sometimes too far, but usually long enough to wear you down and force you to submit to its craziness. Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Empire Magazine Certainly the silliest comedy of the year, but mainly in a good way. Rated: 3/5 Sep 11, 2004 Full Review Cory Woodroof For the Win (USA Today) You could argue that Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is one of the Mt. Rushmore comedies, a pitch-perfect character study combined with some incredible set pieces, unforgettable jokes and scathing commentary. Aug 21, 2023 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies “Anchorman” has a number of great scenes and I found myself laughing out loud numerous times. Unfortunately I found myself rolling my eyes just as much. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 19, 2022 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand The men are crude, the weatherman (Steve Carell) has the intellectual depth of a dust bunny, and the news teams swagger around town like overdressed street gangs who rumble when they collide.

      david n One of the Top 20 comedies of all time. Our entire family loved this movie...so did our friends. Definitely underrated by "critics"...as usual. Watch this and laugh and laugh. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/30/24 Full Review Mike W One of the best comedies of the past 25 years, and some of the best casting in any film in that same period. The chemistry of the cast makes the jokes hit that much better and Will Ferrell is at his very best as the comically arrogant and oblivious Ron Burgundy. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/04/24 Full Review BRENDEN J Funniest movie ever made. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/24 Full Review Weston K Super Funny! This is probably the most influential movie of the 21st century. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/24 Full Review Tee M The comedy hits you like the scent of Sex Panther to the nostrils. It brings tears to your eyes. Lots of strong performers find a great balance, and cameos galore. Watch it. Watch it again. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/24 Full Review Nathan O Best movie I have ever watched Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/03/24 Full Review Read all reviews
