Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy was released in 2004 and, very generally, people I know tend to either love it or hate it. I fell pretty squarely in the “love it camp but in reflection I could have easily gone the other way. You see Anchorman was originally going to have a lot more going on. In fact there were so many different takes and removed sub plots that they were eventually assembled into a whole other film titled “Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie“.
Most of Wake Up isn’t good and it’s easy to see why none of it was included in Anchorman.
I am telling you all of this because I really feel like Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues could really have done with a bunch of stuff cut out.
