Synopsis

Will Ferrell's hit comedy Anchorman is united at last with its 'sequel', Wake Up Ron Burgundy, an entire film made up of footage and scenes that never made it into the first film.


It's the early 1970s and the local anchorman is not only a source of news but a revered local hero. In San Diego, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), a moustachioed bachelor with a taste for scotch, unparalleled passion for the jazz flute, and a near-telepathic connection with his spirited mutt, Baxter, is that man. Rounding out Ron's testosterone-heavy news team are his close friends--cologne-obsessed man-on-the-street Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), sports reporter Champ Kind (Dave Koechner), and mentally challenged weatherman Brick Tamland (Steve Carrell). Their male camaraderie is challenged, though, when producer Ed Harken (Fred Willard), pressured by changing times, brings the first female reporter, ambitious Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), to the team. Ron finds his chauvinistic ideals compromised further when he starts falling in love with her. Fuelled by Ferrell's singularly loopy persona, Anchorman joins the long list of comedies which have successfully poked fun at the styles and mores of the '70s. Here, with Ferrell's script and Adam McKay's direction, the character of Ron Burgundy becomes a full-bodied comic creation whose possibilities for laughs aren't nearly exhausted by the end credits. The result is an often hilarious celebration of moustaches, wide neckties, alcohol abuse, and good, old-fashioned sexism.


Retaining the same cast and crew from Anchorman, Wake Up Ron Burgundy sees the news team--led by Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate)--investigating an extremist organisation known as The Alarm Clock. With the same absurdist tone and style as its parent film, Wake Up Ron Burgundy is a treat for fans of the genre, and its existence goes to show how much time and effort went into making the silly comic gem.

So being a hardcore Ron Burgundy fan like I am, I snapped this badboy up as soon a I saw it on the shelves. Yeah its funny, (not as funny as the film), yeah its over an hour long, but its basically made out of loads of bits that wouldn't fit into the first film. Its supposed to be set AFTER Anchorman, but all the way through, you can recognise clips from the first film...the result? A hash of new material from the cutting room floor, stitched together with a bunch of old stuff.

Dont get me wrong, its still worth buying for a few more anchorman classic lines, but dont expect an entirely new film.

Stay classy...

I can't count how many times I've seen this film. Ron is one of them characters I just find hilarious. I had the normal DVD of Anchorman but needed to see Wake Up Ron Burgundy. I know some people say 'it's over rated', 'it's not even funny' and stuff like that, but we all like different things, and if you find this film hilarious then who cares what someone else thinks. I love Anchorman and will watch it for years and years.

Overall this is a very good deal, with a substantial number of extra features which are both funny and interesting (in that Will Ferrel way).
If you are a big fan of 'Anchorman', then you will no doubt like 'Wake Up, Ron Burgundy - The Lost Movie', although I wouldn't say that it's as funny or memorable as the original. It serves best as a companion film for more devote fans of the original. Therefore, if you already own 'Anchorman' on DVD I don't think it is strictly necessary to purchase this. I would give 4 stars to this for people who already own 'Anchorman'.
However, if you are yet to own any versions on DVD, then this is the definitive collection of everything Ron Burgundy, and so you have to buy it!

One of the funniest films ever made in my opinion. A classic film that can be watched over and over.

Anchorman is a film that only comes around once every decade or so and it sets the standard for any comedies to follow. Arguably being Will Ferrells best it's a film with very ridiculous comedy moments brought together in an extremely intelligent way. It's not something where the jokes are reeled off one by one in an in obvious way, in fact some of the more funny jokes you can miss the first time round as they're very subtle. Along with Will Ferrell this film has a very strong supporting cast with people like Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and Christina Applegate. They give us a great blend of serious acting with very, very silly humour. I'm not usually a fan of the silly comedy movies and I'm sure a lot of people will shy away from it because it looks just that, however, it's something that will surpass all expectations and then some.

Anchorman tells the story of 1970s San Diego news Anchor Ron Burgundy and his time as the most respected Anchorman in the San Diego area. Him and his team, Brian Fantana (Rudd), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) & Champ Kind (David Koechner) are brought into peril when an aspiring woman Anchor is brought into the team. Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) is brought into the news office due to complaints of lack of diversity. This woman is strong and no matter how hard the main news team will try, she's not going to be put off from her goal to be Anchorwoman. Ron manages to use his charm and his ability to play the Jazz Flute (No Inuendo intended) to win over Veronica and they end up dating. She wants to keep it quiet because it will peril her career, but Ron being a mans man tells San Diego live on air that they're sleeping together. Through another series of unfortunate events Ron Burgundys dog baxter is killed leading to him being late for newscast.

Perhaps I am a bit biased by writing this review ; This is my favourite film, ever.

For the price this is at, at the moment you can't go too far wrong, 2 films for this price.

The second film is funny, but also a bit of a let down, you can clearly see that they re-use scenes from the original film and there's very little 'new content', but all in all is still enjoyable.

To all comedy fans, this is a must buy!

Anchorman is obviously hilarious but the bonus dvd makes this set worth having. It's obvious that Wake Up Ron Burgundy is cobbled together from the stuff that didn't make it into Anchorman but the producers are totally up front about it and it's still a great film in it's own right. I'd like to finish with a witty comment but I think we should leave all of those to Ron and the gang.

A definate watch, typical Will Ferrell with great performances from Steve Carrell and the rest of the crew. Not quite Talladega Nights or Blades Of Glory but nether the less this is not worth missing.

A suprising second movie was also a welcome watch, if not a little too similar to the first but if you like the humour you won't be bored.
