Wake Up, Ron Burgundy is an American film created from the leftover scenes of the brilliant comedy movie Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy.

When I saw that this film existed, I was so excited! Obviously, the film could never be as good as the original, otherwise they would have used this alternative storyline, which was little bit more predictable, and not as funny, in the worldwide release.

I can see why this story was not used in the film, as it makes no real sense at all, however the comedic element was still brilliant throughout, with numerous hilarious scenes throughout the film, making it still very enjoyable to watch, even though it was still a very disjointed story.

Overall, this gets a 7.7 because it was still a hilarious movie, however the story was nowhere near as good as that of the original, which made it a little boring to watch at points, but it was still perfectly stupid and farcical enough to make a good film.
