Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy (2004)

Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy (2004)

The siblings: Ronald Joseph Aaron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and Wes Mantooth (Vince Vaughn)

What puts them at odds? Burgundy’s the peacock anchorman at Channel 4. Wes is the central news talent at Channel 9, stuck in second in the ratings. And, as a deleted scene reveals, Wes is Ron’s half-brother. It sort of puts all that talks of Dorothy Mantooth and sainthood into a new light, doesn’t it?

Even if you never knew of the secret connection between Wes and Ron, their burning rivalry is surely enough to hint at a family link. Wes hates Ron – hates him – but goddamn, does he respect him. While the insults flying thick and fast, it’s Wes who comes off worse initially. And their rumble provides for one of the film’s comedy highlights as the clash between the two channels ends up as a massive brawl with various news crews, and at least one trident-induced death. We don’t know what Mantooth will be up to in the sequel, but we’re looking forward to finding out.

Which sibling is your favourite?
