Movie Info

After completing the final cut of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, producers were left with enough deleted material to create an entire alternate film--so they did just that. Wake Up, Ron Burgundy uses alternate takes, cleverly edited pre-existing scenes, and additional voice-over narration from the stately Bill Kurtis to establish the story, then follows a completely different plot arc that was cut from the main film. Revolving around the news team's coverage of a radical terrorist group known as the Alarm Clock, Wake Up, Ron Burgundy finds Ron (Will Ferrell), Brick (Steve Carrell), Brian (Paul Rudd), and Champ (David Koechner) arriving desperately at the home of their mentor, near cannibalism in the California wilderness, and ready to kick ass in the hideout of a terrorist group. It also features appearances by comedic actors whose characters never made it into Anchorman like Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Chris Parnell of SNL, and Justin Long of Dodgeball.

Sequel? Remake? Call it whatever you will. It's still funnier than most movies out there in actual theaters and a nice gift for the fans.

Audience Reviews for Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie

Weaker then the real film

A much weaker version of Anchorman definitely lacks, but this version has some great cameos and amazing Brick moments. I'd hate to be around anyone who can't stand this movie to begin with after seeing this version. For serious Anchorman fans only...

There is a reason why this is a dvd only addition and why test audiences made the right choice in complaining about some of this footage, but it's neat to see how they edited footage around and added more narration to make it seem like another movie almost, some funny stuff here.
