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.

Never before seen in the UK, Wake Up Ron Burgundy is the hilarious "lost" Anchorman movie, following the legendary newsreader (Will Ferrell--Elf, Old School) in a new story line as he battles for a scoop against arch-rival/lover Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate--The Sweetest Thing). Not so much a sequel as a companion piece to the original film, Wake Up Ron Burgundy is a feature length movie compiled from the hours of extra footage not used in Anchorman. With both Burgundy and Corningstone on a mission to "rip the lid off" pacifist terrorist organisation, "The Alarm Clock"--whose motley crew is made-up of cameos from Kevin Corrigan (Grounded For Life), Maya Rudolph (The Simpsons), Amy Poehler (Blades of Glory) and Chuck D (American Gangster)--the "lost Anchorman" movie, is set to pick up where its predecessor left off.

An absolute must for fans of Ferrell and Anchorman, this box set also comes with a special 2-disc edition of the original Anchorman with over an hour of exclusive unseen extra features, including bloopers, deleted scenes, "Ron Burgundy’s ESPN Audition" and "Ron Burgundy's Unforgettable Interviews at the MTV Movie Awards".

Awaits the inevitable host of yawnsome and unfunny anchorman quotes.


Brick Tamland: I'm Brick Tamland. People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks. Years later, a doctor will tell me that I have an I.Q. of 48 and am what some people call mentally retarded.

Champ Kind: Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I **** a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a **** covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

Brick Tamland: O, I'm sorry champ, I think I ate your chocolate squirrel.

Veronica Corningstone: I told you that I wanted to be an anchor...

Ron Burgundy: I thought you were kidding. I thought it was a joke. I even wrote it down in my diary - Veronica had a very funny joke today. I laughed about it later that night.

Brian Fantana: That was one crazy party. I am hung over.

Champ Kind: I woke up on the floor of some Japanese family's rec room, and they would NOT stop screaming.

Brick Tamland: I ate a big, red candle.

Ron Burgundy: Brick, where did you get a hand grenade?

Brick Tamland: I don't know.

Ron Burgundy: I'm gonna punch you in the ovary, that's what I'm gonna do. A straight shot. Right to the babymaker.

Ron Burgundy: I don't know how to put this but I'm kind of a big deal.

Veronica Corningstone: Really.

Ron Burgundy: People know me.

Veronica Corningstone: Well, I'm very happy for you.

Ron Burgundy: I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

Veronica Corningstone: Oh Ron, there are literally thousands of other men that I should be with instead, but I am 72 percent sure that I love you.

Champ Kind: What's it like, Ron?

Ron Burgundy: The intimate times? Outta sight, my man.

Brian Fantana: No, the other thing - love.

Brick Tamland: Yeah, what is that?

Ron Burgundy: I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly...

Ron Burgundy: I'm in a glass case of emotion!

Brick Tamland: I love...carpet. I love...desk.

Ron Burgundy: Brick, are you just looking at things in the office and saying that you love them?

Brick Tamland: I love lamp.

Ron Burgundy: Do you really love the lamp, or are you just saying it because you saw it?

Brick Tamland: I love lamp. I love lamp.

Veronica Corningstone: Take me to Pleasure Town.

Ron Burgundy: Oh, we're going there.

Frank Vitchard: I am gonna straight-up murder your ass.

Brick Tamland: I don't know what we're yelling about!

Ron Burgundy: Last time I looked in the dictionary, my name's Ron Burgundy. What's your name?

Brian Fantana: Brian Fantana.

Champ Kind: Champ Kind.

Brick Tamland: Brian Fantana.

Brian Fantana: No, you're Brick.

Brick Tamland: Brian.

Brian Fantana: I'm Brian.

Brick Tamland: Veronica.

Announcer: You're watching Channel 4 News, with five time Emmy award winning anchor Ron Burgundy, and **** McGee.

Veronica: Good evening, San Diego. I'm Veronica Corningstone. **** McGee is on vacation.

Ron: And I'm ****... I'm Ron Burgundy.

Veronica: Mr. Burgundy, you have a massive erection.

Ron: Oh yeah, about that, it's probably just the pants, I was meaning to take them back to the, uh, pants store.

Veronica Corningstone: For the entire Channel 4 news team, I'm Veronica Corningstone.

Ron Burgundy: And I'm Ron Burgundy. Go **** yourself, San Diego.

Ron Burgundy: Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean that really got out of hand fast!

Brian Fantana: It jumped up a notch.

Ron Burgundy: It did, didn't it?

Brick Tamland: Yea, I stabbed a man in the heart.

Ron Burgundy: I saw that! Brick killed a guy. Did you throw a trident?

Brick Tamland: Yea, there were horses and a man on fire and I killed a guy with a trident.

Ron Burgundy: Brick, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. You should find yourself a safe house or a relative close by because you're probably wanted for murder.

Ron Burgundy: [Talking to dog] You're so wise. You're like a miniature Buddha, covered with hair.

Veronica Corningstone: My God, what is that smell? Oh!

Brian Fantana: That's the smell of desire, my lady.

Veronica Corningstone: God no, it smells like, like a used diaper, filled with Indian food! Oh, excuse me.

Brian Fantana: You know, desire smells like that to some people.

Garth Holliday: What is that? Smells like a **** covered in burnt hair.

News worker: Smells like Bigfoot's dick!

Ron Burgundy: Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diago, which of course in German means a whale's vagina.

Veronica Corningstone: No, there's no way that's correct.

Ron Burgundy: I'm sorry, I was trying to impress you. I don't know what it means. I'll be honest, I don't think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.

Veronica Corningstone: Doesn't it mean Saint Diego?

Ron Burgundy: No. No.

Veronica Corningstone: No, that's what it means. Really.

Ron Burgundy: Agree to disagree.

Ron Burgundy: You stay classy, San Diego. I'm Ron Burgundy?

Ed Harken: Dammit! Who typed a question mark on the Teleprompter?

Brian Fantana: Ron, I know it sounds harsh, but God does not want her to live.

[Arguing against women in the newsroom.]

Brick Tamland: I read somewhere their periods attract bears. Bears can smell the menstruation.

Brian Fantana: Well, that's just great. You hear that, Ed? Bears. Now you're putting the whole station in jeopardy.

Brian Fantana: I think I was in love once.

Ron Burgundy: Really? What was her name?

Brian Fantana: I don't remember.

Ron Burgundy: That's not a good start, but keep going.

Brian Fantana: She was Brazilian, or Chinese, or something weird. I met her in the bathroom of a K-Mart and we made out for hours. Then we parted ways, never to see each other again.

Ron Burgundy: I'm pretty sure that's not love.

Brian Fantana: Damn it!

Ok so let's face it whoever says anchorman is not very funny is in a veeeeery small majority. Definetely a comedy classic with so many laughs in it! Really hope they finally get a chance to make a second, would be the greatest comedy sequel ever!

the 'sequel' is mostly a collection of disjointed cuts that didnt make the final reel of the original and have been stuck together, its pretty bad

Spenspuma must be one of them depressing dry humour fans, which begs the question - why do you think we need ur input about a Will Ferrell film? Eitherway, it's worth £4 just for the deleted scenes!

Good film.

But does it really warrant 3 DVDs?
