There was a time before cable when the local anchorman reigned supreme... Enter the hard-hitting world of 1970's local TV news, where Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and his loyal Channel 4 News Team are San Diego's Number 1 rated news source. All is well in their male-dominated world of news until beautiful , rising star reporter Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) turns it all upside down. Sparks don't just fly, they ignite and all-out war between the two perfectly coiffed anchorpersons. In a job where it pays to keep a straight face, Anchorman is the comedy that makes it almost impossible to stop laughing.
