22. Anchorman

directed by Adam McKay

If any movie could qualify as the post-modern Airplane! (which would be a great name for a third album), it’s Anchorman. It unequivocally solidified Will Ferrell’s brand of comedy and character-type – seismically self-involved celebrity. It also raised the profiles of pretty much everyone else involved, and seriously now, is there a more quotable movie since this one came out in 2004? Are you starting to rattle them off in your head right now? No matter how much you love or loathe the McKay/Ferrell style, there are just too many jokes to ignore it. Perhaps it’s just as the movie tells us: 60-percent of the time, it works every time.

    Yay! Truly a modern comedy classic. So zany and joyfully absurd.
