25 Favorite Films: Anchorman-The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)

I could go on a whole spiel on why the first Anchorman is hilarious. But why not actually show instead of tell? Here are some of my favorite jokes and what’s great is that, for the most part, you don’t really need to see the film to get the context. This film is improvised so well you could probably turn this into a web series where we get tiny blasts of scenes. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is over ten years old and yet it still feels timeless. I have a feeling decades from now we will all be saying the same thing.

(I will say I love this moment in the movie. It comes out of no where and the back story for it is very interesting. Apparently the original joke didn’t work so they came up with singing this song on the fly. You wouldn’t know it was spontaneous though considering how in sync they are.)
