Anchorman 1 Outtakes Were Funnier Than the Sequel

Comedy sequels are usually never as good as their originals. Anchorman 2 was another case of bigger and louder, but not necessarily funnier. However, if you don’t know, Anchorman did have a sort of unofficial sequel before the recent Anchorman 2 release. It was called Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie (2004, IMDB, Wiki). Compiled of dropped sub-plots and alternate takes from the first movie, it was released on DVD in a special pack and I think it’s a little better than the actual official sequel. It had the low-budget charm and the quotable jokes that made the first film a success. Here are three of my favorite scenes from Wake Up, Ron Burgundy.
