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".

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.

News Station Employee: [Disgusted] What is that? Smells like a **** covered in burnt hair.

News Station Employee: [Horrified] Smells like Bigfoot's dick!

Just brilliant! :D

no its not, its basically deleted scenes used to make a movie and with voice over helping totie some sort of plot together.

but its a nice way to see the extras from a great movie.

yes you are:D

The good thing about this film is it was never hyped on release, it's earned its rep through word of mouth rather than massive pre release hype turning out to be a bundle of cack
