Ron Burgundy is the toast of San Diego in the 1970s where heís the cityís top rated news anchorman. Along with his pals and fellow newscast crew, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind, they keep the news a male dominated field and fight anyone who may rival them. But when a headstrong Veronica Corningstone arrives on the scene, determined to be a news broadcaster in her own right, the two must go head to head for the top spot behind the news desk. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching ďAnchormanĒ.
∑ At the beginning of the movie, Ron Burgundy meets Veronica at a party. Ronís drink is completely different between the view of him talking to one of his friends and when he goes after Veronica. When heís holding his drink with Veronica, the glass even has a straw in it that wasnít there before.
∑ When Ron comes home after the party, he starts to put his coat on the chair. But, in the next wide view, the coat is already over the back. Also during this scene, Ronís coat changes position. In close views, the coat is further down the back of the chair and near the middle but in wide views the jacket is closer to the side of the chair. Another thing to look out for is Baxter, Ronís dog. During close-up views of him, his paws are on the arm of the chair but his paws are on the seat cushion during wide views.
∑ Ron offers to show Veronica around the city. While she is waiting for him in the lobby, we see Veronica button her white jacket. However, when Ron shows up a few seconds later, the jacket is now unbuttoned.
∑ All of the cityís news crews are in a brawl. Before the fight begins, Champ puts on a pair of brass knuckles. But, during the fight, when he throws another newsperson through the windshield of a nearby vehicle, the brass knuckles are gone.
