VIDEO and AUDIOThough the Blu-ray includes two distinct cuts of the film, it does so via seamless branching, and the picture does not suffer from compression concerns. Whether it's because the Blu-ray was authored a while back or because Anchorman will soon turn ten, the 1.78:1 presentation isn't quite up there with those given to today's newest films, spotting a few extremely minor blemishes here and there. But the picture is almost always sharp and vibrant, showing off those gaudy '70s fashions cinematically. There's slight room for improvement, but this does just fine for now.The 5.1 DTS-HD master audio mix also delights. While dialogue drives the picture, it remains crisp and full-bodied. The mix also does a nice job of distributing music, be it original score or the flashier period needle drops that form one of the more creative soundtrack albums out there. Player-generated subtitles translate Baxter and other animal speech. BONUS FEATURESBeyond the aforementioned two cuts, Disc 1's extras begin with an audio commentary on each edit. They're edit-specific at the start anyway. The theatrical cut opens with 11 minutes of writer/director Adam McKay and Will Ferrell making small talk about their weekends, lives, families, and success, evidently unaware what they're supposed to be doing. The unrated one finds McKay and Ferrell being deliberately profane (though much of it is inconsistently bleeped), as they ignore the film for 18 minutes to push the boundaries of censorship.Eventually the two tracks sort of align with some creative randomness, albeit with some trims and extensions. Kyle Gass and Andy Richter join in to be offended they weren't in the movie. Then, Paul Rudd calls in to strike back after he hears them insulting him. (It's all staged, obviously.) When those guests leave, McKay and Ferrell perform a kind of radio play as they worry about head wounds from the supposed punches thrown. Singer Lou Rawls joins them to reflect on the '70s, partake in a scat-off with Ferrell, discuss Chicago, love, and mustaches, and remark upon the movie he had nothing to do with. David Koechner joins in around the 50-minute mark to throw a fit about his deleted material. There's also made-up technical talk, terrible film idea pitches, and feuding over Ferrell's comments about McKay's wife. Christina Applegate calls in around 80 minutes in to feel sad for being left out of this and negotiate compensation.Both tracks are kind of a waste of time and bound to disappoint those wanting serious insight into the film's creation, but they're occasionally entertaining and not soon forgotten.A Deleted & Extended Scenes section holds 36 clips presented in letterboxed 1.33:1 standard definition and runs a staggering 53 minutes and 56 seconds. They include appearances by a number of actors not seen in either cut of the film, including Rance Howard (playing the priest at Champ's father's funeral), Joe Flaherty (Veronica's former boss), Neil Flynn (as a police officer), and our narrator Bill Kurtis (as a network anchor). The material includes quite a bit more on Baxter's presumed demise and Ron struggling to come to terms with it, a twist that reveals Wes Mantooth's (Vince Vaughn) biological connection to Ron, and multiple alternate destinies for the Channel 4 News Team. By comparison, the DVD only had 22 deleted scenes running 29 minutes.A reel of bloopers (7:46) differs from the end credits' humorous outtakes, entertaining us with letterboxed, time-coded footage, most of it takes blown by laughter but some of it character promos and unused material. An "Afternoon Delight" music video (3:50) actually consists of unique footage of the cast in character shot to accompany the Channel 4 News Team's peppy rendition of this '70s pop hit.The first disc closes with Ron Burgundy's 1979 audition for ESPN's SportsCenter (1:55), a funny video that shows a big opportunity slip through his fingertips. Disc 2 holds one of the set's biggest attractions with the inclusion of Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie (1:32:55, HD), a film that was released on its own DVD in a pricey gift set alongside the Unrated Edition DVD but swiftly discontinued. Calling this a movie is a bit of a stretch because it is, of course, comprised of material shot for but unused in Anchorman. Still, there is a surprising amount of story completely cut from the film and it's amazing what you can do with editing and voiceover. The latter tries to establish this as taking place after, when Ron and Veronica are a couple, but it's plain to see that unused footage from existing scenes, down to alternate takes, is strung together to give this a narrative feature form.The one big storyline added involves radical group of ideologically confused bank robbers The Alarm Clock (played by Kevin Corrigan, Maya Rudolph, Public Enemy's Chuck D, and Tara Subkoff), who kidnap Veronica and hold her hostage in a big observatory climax. Including appearances by Kate Walsh, Dave "Gruber" Allen, Amy Poehler, Laura Kightlinger, Chad Everett, Justin Long as Ed Harken's troubled son, M.C. Gainey, and Stephen Root, this makes for an enjoyable and occasionally diverting curiosity viewing but obviously doesn't rival the real film (or hopefully the sequel) in quality. This lost film is presented in 1080p and 5.1 DTS-HD master audio. Disc 2's other extras, some of which were on the rare Wake Up DVD and others which weren't, begin with an audio introduction/commentary by Ferrell and Aaron Zimmerman, a faux executive producer Ferrell has no recollection of ever meeting. Ferrell tries to trip up this ignorant tale-telling, name-dropper over the first 13 minutes of Wake Up.Five old-looking PSAs (3:41) find Ron Burgundy decrying drugs, standing up for hippies and politicians, and advocating Scotch and the Bible. They're delightfully random.Excerpted in the film, Ron Burgundy's train wreck Emmy speeches from 1970 and 1971 are presented in full (3:12).Raw footage for twenty-seven "Good Takes" (39:26) share moments that didn't make the film and some that did, sometimes ad nauseam and other times showing off alternate lines and alternate takes of "Afternoon Delight" and Champ and Brian's pantomime intended to distract Veronica. The value of this section isn't obvious, apart from seeing still more of these characters in action. "Afternoon Delight Recording Session" (2:58) shows us the four actors horsing around and eventually recording the song in a guitar shop."Happy Birthday AMC Loews" (3:15) holds four funny video greetings from Ron Burgundy for the merged theater chain's 100th anniversary in business.Three interviews are not the expected cast & crew chatter. Instead, they are Ron Burgundy's 2004 MTV Movie Awards interviews (10:14) of Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, Jim Caviezel, and Burt Reynolds. They're humorously awkward and ill-researched (he mistakes Caviezel for Jesus Christ), with the subjects all being good sports. They're a highlight of the disc. DVD only held the Romijn one. Specials gives us three fun shorts. Cinemax's "The Making of Anchorman" (9:29) is a standard, sincere making-of featurette that adds outtakes and audition clips to the more usual supply of talking heads and behind-the-scenes footage. "Comedy Central Reel Comedy: Anchorman" (8:31) has the film's narrator Bill Kurtis interview Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, and Veronica Corningstone. Everyone is comfortable with this apparent improvisation. "A Conversation with Ron Burgundy" (10:41), the only one of the three included on DVD, finds Ferrell taking the stage at the Museum of Television & Radio to answer questions about the documentary made about his life.Cast auditions (13:03) are provided for Applegate, Koechner, Rudd, Carell, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, Kevin Corrigan, and Justin Long. We also get Alternate Universe auditions (6:38), a.k.a. failed ones, showing Koechner reading as Brick, Carell as Brian, Armisen as Stiller's Arturo Mendes, and Rudolph and a foul-mouthed Amy Poehler as Veronica. It's fun to see these actors, some of them now major movie stars, having to go on tape and try to earn their roles not all that long ago."Rehearsals" (9:09) show the actors staging out scenes in an office room without costume. Six scenes from a June 2003 table read (18:37) are preserved. Uproariously received, the script exists largely as it does in the film (though Veronica is named "Alicia" and "Pleasure Town" is "Ecstasyville"). However, joining Ferrell, Applegate, and Koechner are actors either not in the film or playing different roles: Jay Johnston as Brick Tamland, Matt Walsh as Brian Fantana, and David Herman as everyone else but Wake Up's The Alarm Clock."Playback Video" (5:10) has Brick, Brian, and Champ out and about reporting from the field -- actually, the beach -- about chemical spills, murders, and the like."Commercial Break "(2:04) finds Paul Rudd parading around the set in a pair of tighty whiteys and other glimpses at production oddities.Finally, we get three choice pieces from the film's inspired marketing, which was not nearly as extensive as the sequel's campaigns: the teaser (1:50) and trailer (2:32), both in HD and featuring plenty of cut moments, and short TV spot (0:17) prematurely celebrating trouncing Spider-Man (2).The one significant difference between this general retail release and Best Buy's 2010 incarnation is the addition of Hollywood Movie Money. A sticker on the shrinkwrap holds a unique code for getting $7.50 towards admission to see Anchorman 2 in participating theaters by next Groundhog Day.Disc One consistently (and appropriately) opened with a streamed trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.Not everything from Anchorman's DVDs makes it to Blu-ray. Gone but not terribly missed are text screen-based cast and filmmaker bios and production notes. MENUS, PACKAGING and DESIGNModeled after the opening titles, Disc One's main menu features Ron Burgundy small talk in a series of square screens. Disc Two's menu has Ron vocally encourage you to make a selection while groovy clips of the News Team bouncing around play in squares. Funny as the voiceover is, it gets old playing every time you return after watching an extra, but if you let it run for a while, it does get funnier and more graphic. The movie disc lets you set bookmarks on each cut of the film and even Wake Up, but unfortunately neither disc gives you the choice to resume playback. For some reason, both discs' menus continue to give my Sony player some problems, sometimes displaying magnified listings over the bonus features.The Blu-rays share a standard eco-friendly blue keepcase, but that is housed in the back half of a box whose front half holds some fun tangible extras. "The Many Months of Burgundy" is a 32-page staple-bound booklet reproducing Ron's year-long private diary/planner, an inspired journal featuring crayon drawings, childish misspellings, and some photographs. Joining it is an unopened pack of twelve collectible trading cards featuring characters from Channel 4 and other stations (even including Wake Up, Ron's mentor Jess Moondragon, played by the late Chad Everett, and Jack Black's motorcyclist), dispensing stats and single-paragraph biographies on back. Very classy.CLOSING THOUGHTSOne of this century's finest comedies, Anchorman deserves a place in every home where laughter is encouraged. This expansive Blu-ray release is one of the clearest upgrades over DVD with its two cuts, lost movie, and wealth of bonus material bordering on overkill but full of funny gems. It's a set I'd recommend at virtually any price and yet one that currently will only set you back $15 from Amazon and give you $7.50 towards seeing the sequel in theaters in return.Support this site when you buy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy now from Amazon.com:The "Rich Mahogany" Edition 2-Disc Blu-ray / Unrated 1-Disc Blu-ray /Unrated Widescreen DVD / Theatrical Full Screen DVD / Instant Video
