Janne the Director’s Favorite Rare Movies Top 100 List #50: Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie (2004)

April 9, 2011

The Director of the Animated Comedy Series Lunki and Sika Janne the Director50. Wake Up Ron Burgundy [DVD] (2004)

Yeah yeah, most of you have seen Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) but have you seen this version of it?

Apparently the cast improvised so much that director Adam McKay could edit together a whole new 90 minute feature film version of the movie by using alternative shots and scenes that didn’t make the final movie!

It includes the original ending and stuff that didn’t fit originally, but taken out of context it work! With a voiceover to patch the scenes together it actually becomes something that looks like a movie… And it’s better than 95% of Will Ferrell’s other celluloid artworks!

So if you like to watch cut scenes and alternative endings and other crap that film distributors shove down your throat to sell their DVD’s: this is the Ben-Hur of DVD-extras!
