Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

"They bring you the news so you don't have to get it yourself."

It's the 1970's as San Diego anchorman Ron Burgundy is the top dog in network TV, which gives way to his freewheeling sexism with his fraternal-like crew. But all that's about to change (or be jeopardized) when ambitious reporter Veronica Corningstone has just arrived as a new employee at his TV station.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Paul Thomas Anderson was originally a producer on the project.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In several shots of downtown San Diego's Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres can be seen. Petco Park opened in April 2004. During the 1970's the Padres shared then called San Diego Stadium with the San Diego Chargers.
  • In the night club, Ron plays jazz flute in the style of Ian Anderson (IV), lead singer and flautist of Jethro Tull. Ron blurts out "Hey Aqualung!" at the end of the song, a lyric from the Jethro Tull song "Aqualung", the title track of their 1971 album. In addition, the riff that he plays on the flute just before he does so is the main riff of the same song. Indeed, the scene is rife with Tull references, as the pose Ron strikes at the end of the song is also a clear imitation of the band's logo of a flautist turned sideways with one leg up.
  • The zoo scenes take place at the old Los Angeles Zoo that closed in 1965. The remaining buildings are a tourist attraction in Griffith Park.
