I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.
In comedy, the overall story is not as important as the jokes involved. There are few places where that is more true than in the “Anchorman” movies.
Will Ferrell, whether you like his work or not, has done something almost unique with this film. He has made a successful and well-written film which is simply a series of SNL sketches with a paper-thin complete disaster of a plot. Given the premise, you won’t believe the situations which happen and then just sort of stop!
While “The Big Lebowski” was similar and definitely more subtle, the “Anchormans” make up a Legend which deserves its following of almost the same size.
