Double bill of Will Ferrell comedies. In 'Anchorman - The Legend of Ron Burgundy' (2004), Ferrell stars as Ron Burgundy, a top-rated 1970s San Diego anchorman who believes women have a place in the newsroom - so long as they stick to covering fashion shows or late-breaking cooking news, that is. So when Ron is told he'll be working with a bright young newswoman, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), who's beautiful, ambitious, and intelligent enough to be more than eye candy, it's not just a clash of two TV people with really great hair: it's war. 'Wake Up Ron Burgundy' (2004) is an 'alternate film' companion to 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy'. The movie was compiled from hours of extra footage, dropped sub-plots and alternate takes from the original film. The story follows Channel 4's lead anchor and man about town, Ron Burgundy, as he chases a scoop against rival and lover, Veronica Corningstone.
