"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!


George Carlin about life

"I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A death. What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way.

Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch and you go to work. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement.

You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities. You become a little baby, you go back into the womb, spend your last nine months floating... and you finish off as an orgasm."
