Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy (2004)

Lists: Comedy, Romantic Comedy

Brief Synopsis: "It's the 1970's and San Diego anchorman Ron Burgundy is the top dog in network TV, which gives way to his freewheeling sexism with his fraternal-like crew. But all that's about to change (or be jeopardized) when ambitious reporter Veronica Corningstone arrives as a new employee at his TV station."

Drezzy90 - Every time I rant on Will Ferrell for being unfunny for the majority of his career or want to point out that most of his movies are fucking terrible, the one caveat is Anchorman, which I'd easily put in the upper-tier of comedies alongside Caddyshack, Slap Shot, and Airplane.
Bryan Lienesch88 - Full-on, gut-busting laughter.
