#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – In 1970s San Diego, journalism was a well respected profession and people actually cared about what they saw on TV. And the top rated anchor man in the city is Ron Burgundy. He enjoys his run at the top, and has for the last five years. And his news team is equally as good as he is. Professional jock and former professional baseball player Champ Kind handles the sports, the curiously dim witted Brick Tamland – who’s a few channels short of a cable subscription – handles the weather, and ladies’ man Brian Fantana – whose collection of fine scents would be in the Guinness Book Of Records – handles the on-field reporting. But now all that is about to change forever. The TV station Burgundy works for, Channel 4, has embraced diversity and has hired a beautiful new female anchor named Veronica Corningstone. While Ron Burgundy and the rest of the Channel 4 news team enjoys fighting with competitors, drinking, and flirting with the ladies, Veronica quietly climbs her way to the top. And Veronica’s success drives Ron Burgundy crazy. So much that Veronica’s meddling causes Ron to get demoted and ultimately lose his job with Channel 6. Now left with nothing, Ron must find a way to get back to the top – and that involves a story about a rare Chinese panda giving birth on US soil. Will Ron be the one to report the story on a national level?
Plot: Will Ferrel (Old School, Elf) is Ron Burgundy, a top-rated 1970’s San Diego anchorman who believes women have a place in the newsroom – as long as they stick to covering fashion shows or late-breaking cooking stories. So when ron is told he’ll be working with a bright young newswoman (Christina Applegate) who’s beautiful, ambitious and smart enough to be more than eye candy, it’s not just a clash of two TV people with really great hair – it’s war! Filled with wicked wit and slapstick humor, Anchorman is the year’s most wildly irreverent, must-see comedy hit!

It’s Summertime: Lighten Up and Laugh Without Guilt: No Thinking Necessary
The most devoted cineastes and the average hoi polloi moviegoers both need to kick back and laugh, without probing or analysis, at a goofball, outrageously funny comedy with zero depth. And that’s exactly what director Adam McKay (also co-writer with star Will Ferrell) provides in “Anchorman.” A very warm summer day, like today, was perfect for the quick gags and physical comedy of this nutty flick. Maybe it’s even more of a relief for us folks who are still arguing with each other about “Fahrenheit 9/11” and “Control Room,” documentaries that make us confront a difficult present and a tenuous future.
Will Ferrell is TV news anchor Ron Burgundy in 1970s San Diego. This is Pre-B.W. (Barbara Walters), a dark age when men reported the news almost exclusively. Burgundy, shallow and self-absorbed without redemption, chases skirts and is so genuinely stupid he reads ANYTHING on the teleprompter. His news crew consists of adulators and one misfit, Brick Tamland, played with unremitting mental blankness by Steve Carrell. Burgundy’s dog is a delight, a pooch who can bark in a few languages.
The “Men’s Club” is jolted by the station honcho’s decision to add a woman to the newsroom, largely to appease the network satraps. He says it’s necessary in the interests of “diversity,” a word one staff member doesn’t even understand. Enter pretty but tough Veronica Corningstone, Christina Applegate. Applegate makes what really is a tough comedic role work completely.
A misadventure by Burgundy results in Veronica’s pinch-hitting chance to anchor the evening news. Veronica scores big time. She and Ron are already lovers and she expects him to be thrilled that his absence was her big break. No way and the rest of the film is Ron’s Revenge and Veronica’s Counterattack.
A subplot is the rivalry between Ron and his crew and the mobile news gatherers of competing stations. This ends in a donnybrook reminiscent of the silent film era having no rhyme or reason. The other stations’ combatants are led by Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller and Tim Robbins. Robbins, one of the most intelligent and versatile personalities in film and stage today, should be watched closely. He almost loses his composure acting the zany script. Even Jack Black makes it into the flick as a dedicated junkie.
Don’t miss the outtakes as the end credits role, especially Ferrell’s last comment on what the movie really is.
Pure summer fun-laugh, be happy.
I was never as excited about this movie as my boyfriend was, mostly because I chalk Will Ferrell’s humor up to the level of fratboy hijinx, sex jokes, and toilet humor. But I was willing to chill on the couch and watch the hour and a half comedy. I liked him okay on SNL, and I was mildly amused my Old School. I thought it would be a nice way to relax on a Monday night.
And relax I did…almost to the point of falling asleep. Not only were the jokes not funny, there were so few of them. Long periods of boring-ness separated the gags, which included, and I still cannot believe this, Will Farrell and Christina Applegate riding around on animated unicorns, Paul Rudd spraying on cologne that contained chunks of raw meat (panther), Luke Wilson getting his arm chopped off (not even worthy of the Monty Python memory it conjures up), and Will Farrell ACTUALLY EATING A PIECE OF FECES.
Have we come to this? Is this what’s supposed to make us laugh now? Even the most quotable line from the movie, which the men in my life will not stop repeating, is “you smell like big foot’s dick.” Even that just isn’t funny. (note: watch Napoleon Dynamite if you want some real quotable material.) The only redeeming qualities of the movie are Steven Carell and Jack Black’s brief scene with Baxter, the dog. If you’ve seen it, you know what I’m talking about. “Biker…Punted…Baxter” Save your time and your money on this one. I sure am glad I didn’t have to pay to see it…
