Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is an American comedy film released on July 9 2004. This DreamWorks comedy stars Will Ferrell as TV news anchor Ron Burgundy and Christina Applegate, Vince Vaughn, Steve Carell, and Paul Rudd. It was also written by Will Ferrell and written/directed by Adam McKay

The movie is a tongue-in-cheek take on the culture of the 70s via this look at a TV news organization where one female reporter (Applegate) struggles to become the first female "anchorman."

The title has to some appeared to be a satirical reference to the film Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy, though both titles use a conventional format.
