Anchorman Celebrates Ten Years of Important Life Lessons

10 Life Lessons We Learned from Anchorman

It has been 10 years – 10 FULL YEARS – since Ron Burgundy came into our lives, the one anchorman who was more man than the rest. And a decade after Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy opened in theaters, he's still (say it with us) kind of a big deal.

We can't think of a movie that has given us more quotable lines, more flammable-looking suits or more reasons to avoid drinking milk on a hot day. And we're not exaggerating when we say that Burgundy and the Channel 4 News Team managed to teach us a few things, too. In honor of its 10th anniversary, here are 10 life lessons that we learned from Anchorman. (Yes, 60% of the time these tips will work every time.)

Will Ferrell has been making the rounds as his Anchorman character Ron Burgundy in preparation for the 2004 film's hotly-anticipated sequel coming out in December.

He appeared in a series of ads for the Dodge Durango, and most recently, co-anchored an edition of Bismarck, N.D.'s KXMB's broadcast.

Ferrell/Burgundy brought all his signature moves, slowly leaning into co-anchor's Amber Schatz's screen, before warning her that he's married, so "Don't get any ideas." He casually reaches into sportscaster Jon Schaeffer's frame and pats him on the shoulder mid-report at one point as well.

Film's most acerbic, politically incorrect broadcaster, Ron Burgundy, is back!

The new trailer for Anchorman 2 – The Legend Continues was released Wednesday, showing the twisted and hapless Burgundy, played by Will Ferrell, now under intense news pressure, working for a 24-7 cable news network in New York City, far from his comfort zone and the '70s wild life of his home base in San Diego.

Co-anchor Veronica Corningstone, now his wife, makes a return with Christina Applegate once again in the supporting role. Other journalists join Burgundy on his Big Apple adventure. Playing reporters are Steve Carell, David Koechner and Paul Rudd.
