I caught Anchorman today at a “matinee” (I say that word in quotes because the price for the “matinee” was $9.50, whereas the regular show would have been $9.75. WTF??). I was hoping for something along the lines of Dodgeball or Old School, but I didn’t quite get it.
The movie was decent enough, with a few rather funny moments to tide me over through the mediocre parts. Wil Farrell did a, well, decent job of his part, and Christina Applegate was underused. Steve Carell (a refugee from the Daily Show) completely stole every scene he had, playing the mildly retarded weather man. As far as the rest of the cast goes, there are some great cameos, and a plethora of refugees from SNL.
Watch time :46.
Oh, and the credits. Yes, there are some easter eggs in the credits (including one from Smokey And The Bandit for some reason), but they’re not worth staying. Apparently, they had some many outtakes worth keeping that there will be an entire second DVD worth when this movie hits the home market.Powered by Sidelines
