"Wake Up, Ron Burgundy - The Lost Movie"

One of the funniest films to come out the last decade was the slightly absurd "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" from 2004, masterfully directed by Adam McKay, starring Will Ferrell and a whole cast of excellent comedians.


Unfortunately most people aren't aware of its companion film "Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie" (2004). Compiled by dropped sub-plots and alternate takes, it's much more absurd, features another main plot and has a lot more ad-libbing and crazy improvising than the takes used in "Anchorman", which is in a way more "mainstream". (If that word can be used about such a film.)



To prove my point, here are five amazing clips from "Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie":






If you like this brand of humour, why not get the double-pack DVD-set with both films? Click here or the image below to go to Amazon. You will not regret it!



Adam McKay has also done the feature films "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" (2006) and "Step Brothers" (2008), but these are not nearly as good as the aforementioned combo "Anchorman"/"Wake Up". Hopefully his newest effort "The Other Guys" (2010) is better!
