Collection of four comedies starring Will Ferrell. In 'Anchorman - The Legend of Ron Burgundy' (2004), Ferrell stars as Ron Burgundy, a top-rated 1970s San Diego anchorman who believes women have a place in the newsroom - so long as they stick to covering fashion shows or late-breaking cooking news, that is.
So when Ron is told he'll be working with a bright young newswoman, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), who's beautiful, ambitious, and intelligent enough to be more than eye candy, it's not just a clash of two TV people with really great hair: it's war. 'Wake Up Ron Burgundy' (2004) is an 'alternate film' companion to 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy'.
The movie was compiled from hours of extra footage, dropped sub-plots and alternate takes from the original film.
The story follows Channel 4's lead anchor and man about town, Ron Burgundy, as he chases a scoop against rival and lover, Veronica Corningstone.
In 'Blades of Glory' (2007), when rival figure skaters Chaz Michael Michaels (Ferrell) and Jimmy McElroy (Jon Heder) start battering each other on an Olympic podium in front of the world's press, they're stripped of their gold gongs and banned from the sport for life.
Several years down the line and they're reduced to IceCapades-type ice theatre shows and hating it considerably.
There's one loophole that might get them back into competing but it involves them pairing up and becoming the first male-male pair in world figure skating.
Their macho male egos are only two of the obstacles they need to overcome, and hating each other's guts certainly doesn't help.
Finally, in 'Old School' (2003), Mitch (Luke Wilson) catches the early flight home after a business trip and finds his wife (Juliette Lewis) in bed with a room full of naked strangers.
He moves out and rents a house near the campus of his old college and with the help of his two best friends (both married and with kids), he gets down to serious partying.
However, their partying soon attracts the students of the college - and the anger of the dean of the college who tries to make Mitch's neighbourhood a student-only area.
To counter this, the friends form a fraternity with its headquarters at Mitch's house.
But their high-jinks begin to take its toll on Mitch's potential love-life.
