    ★★★½ Watched 26 Mar, 2014 2

    It's the early 80's, and Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) are happily married, proud parents to a young son and co-anchoring for a New York-based network.

He's going to hand his position to them, surely! Well, he is and…

    Awkward loner Andrew (Dane DeHaan, soon to appear as Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2) is invited by his more affable cousin Matt (Alex Russell, Bait, Carrie) to go to a party, to help cheer him up. Andrew has problems at home; his mother is dying of cancer, the cost of her medication has become prohibitive, and his dad is an abusive drunk. Andrew brings with him the bulky old video camera he's been using of late to document...…
