Anchorman Celebrates Ten Years of Important Life Lessons

10 Life Lessons We Learned from Anchorman

Originally posted 07/10/2014 10:45AM

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.)

See Will Ferrell and His Chili Peppers Doppelgänger Face Off in a Drum Battle

Originally posted 05/23/2014 08:50AM

Will Ferrell puts his pants on one leg at a time, just like you. Except, once his pants are on, he stages hilarious late-night drum battles with his rock and roll lookalike.

For much of his career, Ferrell has been saddled with the gift and the curse of looking exactly like Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. This has resulted in a playful rivalry between the two men, with Ferrell pretending to be Smith after a recent Reddit AMA. Smith didn't take the insult lying down, challenging the comedian to a musical duel – drum vs. cowbell – all in the name of charity.

Jimmy Fallon is wrapping up his first week as host of The Tonight Show with some major guests and serious laughs.

On Thursday night, Michelle Obama joined Fallon for a segment called "Ew!" Taking on the persona – and braces – of a 'tween girl named Sara, the host welcomed a cross-dressed Will Ferrell and FLOTUS to talk about things that make them go "Ew!"

Daddy long legs, dorky stepdads and jelly doughnuts all made the list of valley girl no-nos, but when the "young ladies" tried to poo-poo exercise, Mrs. Obama had something to say.

Will Ferrell took part in Reddit's "Ask Me Anything" series Tuesday afternoon. Because he's a stand-up guy, he was doing it to support Cancer for College (a charity that helps provide college scholarships to cancer survivors) on World Cancer Day, and because he's Will Ferrell, he made a lot of ridiculous jokes.

From a Shelter to Showbiz: Anchorman 2's Baxter Is a Scene Stealer

Originally posted 12/27/2013 11:00AM

Look out, Ron Burgundy! There's more than one star making his comeback in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

Baxter, Burgundy's beloved canine companion, returns for the highly anticipated sequel, but with a twist: The pup's original portrayer, Peanut, passed away in the years between films, so a new pooch was cast to fill his A-List paws.

Shelter pup Quince "was found wandering around a grocery store supermarket," says his trainer Ray Beal, before making his big screen debut in Anchorman 2. But you'd never guess the dog was a newbie based on his days on set.
