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

So funny that you won't care that it has no real plot but boasts more bad wigs than The Lord of the Rings...

Fans of the Todd Phillips school of comedy are going to be divided on this one -- there's real potential here and a great premise but had it been a little cleverer it could've been so much more.

Overall, I put Anchorman on about the same level as Dodgeball. Both movies are pretty stupid and don't generate as many laughs as you wish they would.

Nothing in Anchorman will be mistaken for the work of Preston Sturges, but the occasional chuckle and even a loud guffaw is unavoidable.

If we want to judge Anchorman by its own standards, we can observe that nothing in the movie lives up to, say, Toonces the driving cat.

Avoid Anchorman like the plague, you'll thank me later.

Ferrell wrenches every drop of ingenuity from a lackluster screenplay and amplifies it through his face, his voice, his gut - even his underwear.

Certainly the silliest comedy of the year, but mainly in a good way.

Doesn't quite live up to the promise of its admittedly funny trailer, though it does have several good laugh-out-loud gags.

balances its social satire with some outlandish visual gags and moments of surreal hilarity

Ferrell is at the top of his game, giving us a character who is utterly shallow, silly, and vainglorious, yet completely likable.
