    I love Andchorman, I'm a bit worried about a sequel to it though. I hope they can do the busines. Just keep it off-the-wall and don't go all big budget on us.

    I remember watching Anchorman in my room at Uni, with my flatmates. They were all in stitches, and I was smiling every now and then.

    THEN I PUT ON MY SHADES AND MY TRENCHCOAT.

    But seriously, I am so fucking sick of people quoting it, EVEN NOW. Have they never watched some actual proper fucking good comedy, not this bizarre US-big-budget-frat-bro-clique comedy that has spawned such shite as the Hangover and anything with Will Ferrell shouting in it?

    Before any of you start, yes, I know I am being unreasonable.

    What would you consider a good comedy then?

    Anchorman definitely isn't a big budget comedy.

    He shouted like a hairy man-child best in Anchorman. But that was in 2004 (not counting the Wedding Crashers cameo).

    Anchorman 2? Don't screw this up, Ron.

    It's hardly indie, is it?

    I loved both The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Wake up Ron Burgundy and thinking about it now I haven't seen either of them for a while now so may have to fish them out this weekend.

    I shall be very much looking forward to the new one.

    Anchorman was $26,000,000 estimated.

    Anyway, you're dignifying my ranting with responses. Please stop, else I might fall into a morgado trap.

    Eagle vs Shark FTW.

    All relative isn't it. According to IMDB it cost 10mil less than a British comedy like Johnny English that came out a year earlier.

    I agree that it's shit when the masses co-opt something like this. And it's shit when they latch onto the most obvious parts (I love lamp, etc.)But it's still a brilliant film, though. It is a comedy classic.

    "I know what you're asking yourself and the answer is yes. I have a nickname for my penis. Its called the Octagon, but I also nicknamed my testes - my left one is James Westfall and my right one is Doctor Kenneth Noisewater. You ladies play your cards right you just might get to meet the whole gang."

    Tongan Ninja is better than Eagle vs Shark.

    I have a great liking for Anchorman; I'm perfectly happy for other people not to enjoy the film, but I don't see how my rating it highly is harming them in any way. Can't we all just get along?

    This is not about Anchorman, but yes, it's relative. But to say they're not big budget is wrong.

    @President Weasel - I know, I'm just being an arse.

    This review for Jack and Jill pretty much explains why films like this cost so much

    Basically, everyone is stood there with their hand out.

    I found it predictable but hilarious. The monkey is the star of the show and I'm a big fan of Ken Jeong. The other stars, for me, don't stand up to their performances, the monkey and ken stole the show. But I foudn the film to be really funny and the photography was strangely really beautiful. Some amazing shots of Bangkok at night and day throughout the movie.

    I have to separate Anchorman: the film, and Anchorman: the fans. The film is hilarious. Having your entire peer-group continually quote the film at you for almost a decade isn't.

    I quite like Will Ferrell films, and I quite liked Anchorman, but I'd echo what Lukus said and what other said about the fans.

    It's funny, and all, the fandom that this has attracted has reminds me of
