In a nutshell:
Legendary Anchorman Ron Burgundy finds his career and male superiority threatened by the arrival of a sexy little lady.
If Ron Burgundy says it… it‘s the truth!
Ron Burgundy: ‘You are a smelly pirate hooker.’
Veronica: ‘You look like a blueberry.’
Ron: ‘I know that one day Veronica and I are gonna get married on top of a mountain, and there’s going to be flutes playing and trombones and flowers and garlands of fresh herbs. And we will dance till the sun rises. And then our children will form a family band. And we will tour the countryside and you won’t be invited.’
‘I’m in a glass case of emotion!’
Ron Burgundy is San Diego‘s top anchorman. At a party he meets Veronica Corningstone; a new breed of smart, sassy lady reporter with an eye on his job.
At first she’s stuck doing the small stories like cat fashion shows. But then tragedy strikes Ron - involving a burrito, a biker and Ron’s beloved dog, Baxter.
Ron can’t make the studio in time to read the news, so Veronica persuades the boss to let her read in his place and a battle of the sexes ensues.
Can Ron recover his prestigious solo spot, with the help of his Neanderthal chums?
Who will triumph in the gangsta rumble between the network news teams?
Or will Ron and Veronica simply be eaten by bears?
That’s all we have time for. Stay classy, Tumblr.
