ANCHORMAN - THE LEGEND OF RON BURGUNDY is a 2004 US comedy in which a 1970s news anchorman falls for the network's first female news anchor.

Sex

There are frequent visual and verbal sex references throughout the film, some of which are crude in nature but all of which occur within a clearly comic context. These include sight of a bulge under a man's trousers and discussions of the pet names applied to men's genitals. There is one discreet sex scene, which does not go beyond the couple passionately kissing on a bed.

Violence

There is a mock battle sequence between different network news teams, using make-shift weapons. There are a couple of heavy blows and a brief gory shot of a severed arm.

Language

The film also includes a comic use of strong language ('f**k') and some moderate and mild bad language, including uses of 'bitch', 'frigging', 'son of a bitch', 'ballbuster', hell', 'damn', 'ass', 'crap', 'butt', 'turd' and 'shit'.

There are some undetailed verbal references to drug use, including a reference to a man being 'on Acid' and a person being asked whether they are 'high'.
