Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is a 2004 comedy film written by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. The film is a tongue-in-cheek take on the culture of the 1970s, particularly the then-new Action News format. It portrays a San Diego TV station where one female reporter (Christina Applegate) struggles to become the first "Anchorwoman". This film is number 100 on Bravo's 100 funniest movies, and 113 on Empire's 500 Greatest Movies of All Time.

The film made $28.4 million in its opening weekend, and $89.3 million worldwide in its total theatrical run. A companion film assembled from outtakes and abandoned subplots, titled Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie, was released straight-to-DVD in late 2004. In May 2008, it was confirmed that a sequel to Anchorman is in the planning stages.

Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) is San Diego's finest anchorman. In his city Ron is so well-known that a baby's first words are "Ron Burgundy". He works alongside his friends and co-reporters Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), who works as the lead field reporter, sports reporter Champion "Champ" Kind (David Koechner), and weatherman Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) at Channel 4 News. After a successful day of work, the team is notified their station has again maintained its long-held status as the highest-rated in town, leading them to throw a wild party (even though their boss, Ed Harken (Fred Willard), told his assistant Garth Holiday (Chris Parnell) not to let this happen). During the party Ron sees a woman and attempts to seduce her but fails miserably.
