Synopsis: San Diego news anchorman Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and his cohorts have their egotistical worlds turned upside down when a female reporter, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) joins the team.

Cat Burglars (Scene Stealers): Veronica is frustrated when her first assignment is to cover a cat fashion show.  Several cats are seen walking the catwalk in various outfits.  It’s a short segment but certainly steals the movie!

It’s interesting to note that the cat actors were led by their trainers who were dressed as the cat’s owners and appeared on screen as well.

Bonus Cats: On the DVD is a bonus music video for the song Afternoon Delight featuring the cast camping it up to the 1976 song.  In one setup the actors are seen holding kittens.

Steve Carell is particularly featured in these shots, holding an adorable kitten and making it swoop during the skyrockets in flight sound.  We’ll let you draw your own innuendo to explain the presence of the kitties.
