Critic Reviews for Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie
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.

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...
The good parts outweigh the bad.
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.
