Probably not of any interest to a non-Anchorman fan.
27 May 2009 | by eddaxSee all my reviews

Anchorman was my favorite Will Ferrell movie before Blades of Glory, so ever since I learned of this DVD "movie" years ago, I had wanted it. However it was unfortunately only available as a bonus disc to the original movie and not readily available on region 1, and it wasn't even released on region 3. Hence I was quite happy to finally buy this (with Anchorman) in Oz.

Was it worth the wait? Yes, and no. I hadn't known beforehand that this "movie" was made of various cut extended scenes and deleted scenes and such, and so it's not quite as coherent as a normal movie. Still, there's effort put into the cutting and pasting, and the result is indubitably more fun (and easier) than watching the individual scenes as standalones the way they are typically relegated as in DVD bonus features, which I don't even bother to watch, usually.

So yes, I'm quite happy that I got this DVD, but I doubt it would be of any interest to anyone who didn't like (or watch) Anchorman. 6
