[A] very funny, silly, and well acted comedy that must be watched for the great laugh out loud performances, and gut busting gags.

By no means ... a great movie. But I not only understand why some people love it, I think I'm even beginning to love it a little myself.

Laughs galore follow the well-paced humor as cameo performances by Jack Black, Tim Robbins, and Luke Wilson spice up the buffoonery ingeniously smacked at by the rest of movie's talented ensemble.

Relentlessly silly but not quite funny parody of 70s network news never quite lives up to its promise.

Some of the material works, some doesn't.

This goofy, energetic comedy flattens out at times but milks its 1970s setting and characters for numerous huge laughs.

...like a 'Saturday Night Live' skit that got out of hand, a good idea that kept going and going but never quite jelled into a story.

A crude, funny satire that tackles local television anchors and their newscasts. Those are easy targets to skewer, but the movie mines more truth from its subject than some in the biz will want to admit.

Some of Anchorman is the kind of giddy, nonsensical stuff that can only emerge from a genuinely deranged comic brain.

Ostensibly modeled on the egomaniacal Ted Baxter of the old Mary Tyler Moore TV series, this adventure's protagonist is less comical, less endearing, and generally grates on the nerves.

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.

Word is Ferrell got the idea for the film one night while watching a documentary on the male dominated world of 70s television news. His fans should thank their lucky stars the comedian happened to catch it.

Ferrell's manic energy takes it beyond parody and into a brilliant dance of buffoonery.
