12 Surprising Facts You Might Not Know About Anchorman

This movie trivia list is just in time, because you want to be fully informed before seeing the sequel. And some of what you'll learn are things you wouldn't know from seeing Anchorman multiple times. For example:

2. The restaurant that Veronica and her female coworkers visit, is a health inspector’s nightmare. The restaurant is called “Escupimos en su Alimento” which translates to, “We spit in your food.” If only Yelp had been around in the 1970s.

3. The first draft of the script contained a fantastic story of monkeys and cannibalism. Adam McKay’s first script wasn’t even set in San Diego, but instead, involved two planes colliding and crashing on a remote mountain. One plane contains the Channel 4 News Team and the other is filled with monkeys and martial arts equipment. Naturally, the news team turns cannibalistic while battling their ninja monkey foes. I have to admit, I now really want to see Brick Tamland fight some sword-wielding monkeys.

It's just that kind of nonsense that keeps people returning to Ron Burgundy for inspiration. See the rest of the list at Warming Glow.
