We have the technology, if we can find enough pieces, we can build a new better stronger Ron Burgundy!!

Dir. Adam McKay

Starring Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Steve Carell, David Koechner etc.

This movie, made up of portions edited out of Anchorman is surprising funny for something made out of the scraps on the editing room floor. Ok, maybe it’s a little stilted in places but it still surprised me that they were able to construct a story that actually made sense out of the nonsense they pulled out of the first one. Reminded me of the little quote we often hear “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.

It did make me think though.. about what it does take to make a good movie… is it someone who knows how to edit? Cause if they can make a decent movie out of “crap”, imagine what someone can do with “good” stuff… and what does it say for movies that are so badly edited that they can’t even make something cohesive with “good” stuff.

Well, anyways… although not brilliant, it is Will Ferrell!! .. whom for the life of me, I don’t know why, but I always like… it’s fun and worth a look-see.

Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie (2004) – His Review September 16, 2006

I'm Ron Burgundy?

Based on the real life events that took place during the cutting of the movie Anchorman, Wake Up, Ron Burgundy gives us a whole other movie about the guy.

It’s not as funny, as tight, as well scripted or even half as good as Anchorman, but it’s still worth a watch if you liked the original movie. You can’t help noticing exactly why some of the stuff in here was left out of the original, but just like the gag-reel that often rolls with the credits in comedies, it’s highly amusing at times.

It’s an experiment in using bonus material for something other than an exercise in clicking the navigation buttons on your DVD remote – just sit back and enjoy the inanity.
