Surprise surprise, the movie outplays its trailer. Picks up big well-deserved laughs in between ever decreasing non-funny moments.

All those comedy smarts boils down to one indisputable fact: Anchorman is the single funniest thing Will Ferrell has done yet.

Anchorman has a good-natured attitude to go along with its hit-or-miss jokes, and Ferrell's willingness to humiliate himself for a laugh should count for something.

Resembling Bill Murray's early career, Ron Burgundy is a Peter Venkman/Carl Spackler type performance which will be remember fondly during Will Ferrell's 2020 Oscar run.

Half of Anchorman had me laughing on cue; the other half made me want to switch channels.

Aimed squarely at the open-mouth-breathers who turned Dumb and Dumber and Big Daddy into hits.

Ferrell's written himself a perfect vehicle for his shameless overacting.

To praise Anchorman for perceptive social commentary would be giving the movie more credit than it deserves, but it isn't just pratfalls and sexual humour.

O diretor já revelou que um segundo filme, produzido apenas com as cenas deletadas deste, será incluído no DVD. Será que a pré-venda já começou?

The period detail is hilarious, abetted fantastically by Alex Wurman's score. But there's so much talent on hand that you couldn't blame anyone for wanting more.

Watching Ferrell and crew put the uproar in uproarious makes you forget, if only for a while, today's worst news.

I could have used more smarm and crisply delineated battle-of-sexes confrontation, but Ferrell's overwrought mania and wholesale comedic devotion again sell the laffs.
