Will Ferrell co-wrote the screenplay with Adam McKay, a former "Saturday Night Live" head writer who's making his directorial debut with "Anchorman." In the film, Ron Burgundy (Ferrell) thinks he is a lot smarter and more talented than he really is. He has somehow gotten by on his charisma and although he is a basically just a mediocre journalist, San Diego seems to love him. That is until Veronica Corningstone's arrival. San Diego has seen weather girls before, but this woman is brought in as a reporter and that had simply never happened here. To make matters worse, she is not only beautiful, but she is smart and strong. When she's assigned to be on the air beside Ron Burgundy, things get hot. Ron's news team is made up of: David Koechner ("A Guy Thing") as a sportscaster named "Champ,", Steve Carell ("Bruce Almighty"), as Brick the weather man, and Paul Rudd ("The Cider House Rules") as Ronís investigative reporter, and Fred Willard ("A Mighty Wind") and Chris Parnell (TVís "Saturday Night Live") are the news producers. Kevin Corrigan ("Slums of Beverly Hills"), renowned rap musician Chuck D (of Public Enemy), Tara Subkoff ("American Pie") and Maya Rudolph (TVís "Saturday Night Live") appear as members of the radical underground group The Alarm Clock, which becomes the big news story of the day. This is a highly entertaining, very funny film that's equally intelligent, hilarious, appalling and appealing.
